Order the album at:

Melody Road is Neil Diamond’s first studio release in 6 years and his first release since he has signed with Capitol Records. Throughout his career he has had 37 Top 40 singles and 16 Top 10 albums in the U.S. 2008’s release Home Before Dark debuted at #1 in the U.S and in the UK on the Billboard Top Albums chart.  The album is to be released on October 21st and was co-produced by Don Was and Jacknife Lee.

The album kicks off with the title track – Melody Road.  I wasn’t sure I would like this CD, but I have to say that this song has such great music that it completely captured my attention and drew me in.  First Time reminds me of the Sesame Street theme song. I’m not really sure why.  The music, I guess!  The whole CD is pretty catchy and I caught myself humming quite a few of the songs to myself after listening.

I have to say that I think that my favorite songs are Nothing But a Heartache and Alone At The Ball.
