Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (11/89) - Ranked #5 in Rolling Stone's list of the "100 Best Albums Of The Eighties."

Rolling Stone (12/11/03, p.116) - Ranked #81 in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums Of All Time" - "...Simon created an album about isolation and redemption that transcended 'world music' to become the whole world's soundtrack..."

Uncut (p.91) - "Wisely, Simon made an intimately personal album rather than an explicitly political one, but GRACELAND was nevertheless a liberation."
