The melding of South African styles and Simon's trademark sensibility made for one of the most intriguing albums - not to mention commercial hits - of the '80s. At once lively, thoughtful, gorgeous, and tough, 'Graceland' acknowledges splits both in South Africa's social fabric and in Simon's personal life (the title track is a clear descendant of the earlier 'hearts and bones,' a song about the singer-songwriter's brief marriage to Carrie Fisher). Humour is hardly absent from the mix, though; witness the addled 'i know what i know' and the fable-like 'you can call me al.'
