PAUL SIMON Surprise (Warner) He´s opening the book of his vanishing memory and paying off his debts. He´s ridding his heart of envy and cataloguing his regrets. He´s the grumpy old grandpa muttering: ´Anybody care what I say? No!´ Cracking a 15-year creative coma, the 65-year-old songwriter bounced back with meditations on mortality set to folk music of the future, aided by collaborators old (Steve Gadd) and new (Brian Eno). The lyrics are steeped in hindsight, yet the sparkling electronic soundscapes successfully sidestepped any potentially embarrassing bids for Botox techno-pop. Unlike his geezer peers´ 2006 output, Simon´s wartime prayers and crises of conscience proved to be both resonant and relevant.
