Our Stephen Thomas Erlewine says that Neil Diamond's new album, Melody Road, is a four-star record that finds the man getting back to the wide-ranging sounds of his earlier albums after a sojourn into more serious-minded Rick Rubin territory. To mark the release of the new record, we've got a pair of prize packs to give away to two AllMusic readers; each will consist of a copy of Melody Road and a T-shirt that you probably can't wear to Thanksgiving next month.



Subtle! But based on the...enthusiasm that many AllMusic readers use when telling us about a grave injustice we've committed on the site, we know many of you aren't scared of a little profanity, implied or otherwise, here and there. So check out the rules below and enter for a chance to win this Neil Diamond prize pack.



Contest details:

Two winners will receive: one copy of the Neil Diamond's latest, Melody Road, and one Neil F**king Diamond t-shirt.

It's easy to enter to win. Just choose ONE of the two options below, and you're entered.

1) Log in with your AllMusic account—or sign up if you aren't already a user—and comment on this post with the name of your favorite Neil Diamond song that ISN'T "Sweet Caroline." All entries naming "Sweet Caroline" will be disqualified! It can even be a song he wrote for someone else, as long as it's not $%@#-ing "Sweet Caroline." Be sure to register with an email address you check regularly, because that's how we'll notify you if you are selected.

OR

2) Mail us a letter or postcard with the name of your favorite Neil Diamond song that ISN'T "Sweet Caroline," plus your contact info (email address, Twitter handle, or phone number) to AllMusic HQ, postmarked by Monday, October 27.
