'Dreams,' Neil Diamond

Most of the fans are disappointed on the release of the Neil Diamond new album 'Dreams'.Diamond after the release of this album seems to be tired with his passion because this is not we actually want Diamond to be.

But Dreams? It’s just disappointing, man — especially on the heels of Home Before Dark, which was such a great late-career album.

The ablum 'Dreams' is seriously for some other kind of people's song - ones that Diamond holds dear. There’s a little Cohen, some Lennon and McCartney, a little Eagles. But where he might usually lay that great snarling sass down on his own songs — the swagger that makes the ladies go crazy — he simply throws a wet blanket over old songs here.
