Description

Primitive is the sixteenth studio album by Neil Diamond. It was released in 1984 on Columbia Records. Primitive attempts to capitalize on the easy listening success of Heartlight by replicating its sound and structure. In other words, it’s another collection of lightweight romantic ballads that are stifled by the immaculate production. Diamond’s collaborations with Burt Bacharach(“Turn Around,” “Sleep With Me Tonight,” “Crazy”) show some signs of life, particularly the graceful “Turn Around,” but they’re not enough to save the album from being a generally uninvolving affair.
