Neil Diamond's 2005 collaboration with Rick Rubin, 12 Songs, found the latter stripping the pop legend's work down to a sparse, acoustic-based sound, as he'd famously done for Johnny Cash in the '90s. Apparently, the experience impressed Diamond enough to warrant a second go-round with the producer. Home Before Dark takes a similar sonic approach as its predecessor; on most of these songs, Diamond is backed by little more than Tom Petty's Heartbreakers, Mike Campbell's acoustic guitar, and Benmont Tench's piano (the pair contributed to Cash's recordings too). There's a sense of emotional nakedness here, as the 67-year-old Diamond peers deeply into the intricacies of his life, delivering penetrating insights in a highly reflective mode while never losing sight of his gifts as a master pop melody maker. ~ Jim Allen
