"...a fine mix of style and the best showcase of the Simon and Garfunkel talents with
rich accompianment and solid harmonies."

Sounds of Silence is Simon & Garfunkel's second album.The title track is legendary - when the original, acoustic version of the tune was given a rock feel by adding an electric backing track, folk-rock was invented, and the duo were catapulted to superstardom. It is here that Simon starts to realize his full potential as a brilliant songwriter, and Garfunkel as a breath-taking singer.

This release is propelled by the two great and memorable songs; The lyrics of the title
tune are equal to any that were being produced at the time and one of those rare
songs that defines a period of time and is instantly recognizable by its first few notes. “I
Am A Rock”
a sensitive and thoughtful song of loneliness is poetry set to music and
was the second single released from the album reaching #3 on Billboard.
