Music Review: Neil Diamond: Love Songs

This is a compilation album produced in 1981.  Most of the songs are written by Neil Diamond, however he does sing "Both Sides Now" from Joni Mitchell and "Suzanne" written  by Leonard Cohen.  It is interesting that this album is called Love Songs, while many of the songs are falling out of love songs, like "If You Go Away" and "Last Thing on my Mind."  Diamond even plays marriage therapist in "Husbands and Wives" which has a very good message.
Angry words spoken in haste
Such a waste of two lives
Its my belief
Pride is the chief cause in the decline
In the number of husbands and wives
I have found those words to be very profound.  
Something very unique in this album.  Diamond sings Falsetto in "A Modern Day of Love."
