Neil Diamond, normally a quick worker, spent four months agonising over the lyrics of I Am… I Said, and it shows. That’s why the song lingers. There are lines which don’t quite ‘fit’ at first, and seem almost fragmentary coming from such a craftsman, but they’re the lines which – once the penny drops – give it its confessional greatness. People magazine hailed the song as “Art at its best, which moves the audience to self-investigation”. Certainly it’s a masterpiece of introspection which transcends conventional pop limitations. Diamond himself rambled, “It tells of feeling lost and questions and doubts and insecurities… and realising that you can never go back home”.

Driven by the hit singles "I Am…I Said" and "Crunchy Granola Suite," Stones is a stronger album than most of Neil Diamond's late-'60s records. Instead of padding the album with mediocre originals, Diamond picked several fine covers to fill out the remainder of the album, including Roger Miller's "Husbands and Wives," Joni Mitchell's "Chelsea Morning," Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne," Randy Newman's "I Think It's Gonna Rain," Jacques Brel's "If You Go Away," and Tom Paxton's "The Last Thing on My Mind." There are still a few weak patches on Stones, but the record remains an engaging collection of mainstream pop. Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Although Diamond has continued to sell healthy quantities of his albums and to fill arenas for his concerts, Heartlight and its title song, which was a Top Ten hit, were his last record releases as what might be called "a front'line artist," one who makes contemporary music for a contemporary audience and sells a million copies on release. It's a typical album for Diamond at this point, full of romantic sentiments rendered in highly produced settings and employing the cream of L.A. studio musicians, but lacking the excitement of his early work and the ambition of his middle period.

Neil Diamond, in the opinion of many critics and fans, went into an artistic decline in the mid- to late- '70s. It turns out that he still had a number of good songs left in him, though, and the inconsistency of his later efforts should be viewed in context.

Released at the dawn of the 1980s, „September Morn“ is very much an update of Neil Diamond's 1960s roots, with a (perhaps ill-advised) disco version of the Motown classic "Dancing in the Street" and a remake of his own "I'm a Believer," heard here complete with faux-reggae rhythm and synthesized steel drums. The album also looks to the past in cuts like producer Bob Gaudio's timeless "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" and the vintage blues song "Stagger Lee." But Diamond shows he's still a master of sentimental balladry in his delivery of songs like the title track and "The Shelter of Your Arms," with an almost chanson-like delivery that blends classic Tin Pan Alley schmaltz with French-style romance.

Produced by the Band's Robbie Robertson, who had also helmed the previous year's „Beautiful Noise“, 1977's „Love At The Greek“ is a document of Neil Diamond at the height of his fame, performing hits like 'Kentucky Woman' and 'Sweet Caroline' before an audibly awestruck crowd. The musicianship is impeccable throughout, while the arrangements update and in some cases improve on the originals, injecting freshness and vitality into Diamond classics like 'Holly Holy' and 'Song Sung Blue.' The medley from the songwriter's 'Jonathan Livingston Seagull' opus is a particular highlight.

Although he managed to place three singles in the charts after joining Uni Records in 1968, Neil Diamond did not achieve a real hit record on the label until March 1969, when his fourth Uni single, "Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show," got into the Top 40. Naturally, Diamond quickly assembled an album to support the single, and it was released the following month.
