Q:Hearts and Bones wasn't much of a commercial hit, so why is this one noteworthy? 

A: No hit singles, that's true.  The overall content, however, represents Paul Simon at the peak of his creative power.  The musician ship.  The artistry.  The overall tone.  The melodic compositions.  The lyrics. This is Paul Simon at his best.  But then that is just my opinion.  Your opinion may differ.
