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.

But Diamond does the opposite here — blah-ing down great songs, adding a sad, geriatric feel to them. —Leah Sottile Recommended Download: “Desperado”
