Building on the strengths of its predecessor ANOTHER PASSENGER, BOYS IN THE TREES continues Carly Simon's artistic progress in the face of declining success on the pop singles charts. Unlike ANOTHER PASSENGER, Simon scored a hit off of BOYS IN THE TREES (the slinky "You Belong To Me"), but the whole is constructed in such a way that even that song gains strength in the context of the rest of the album.
Arif Mardin's production gives the album a high gloss sheen without making it sound like a disco bandwagon-jumper, even on the dancefloor-ready "Tranquillo (Melt My Heart)." The album is not without missteps--exhibit A is the bizarre fake-reggae "De Bat (Fly in Me Face)"--but as a whole, this is one of Simon's finest albums, and those wanting to move beyond her greatest hits compilations could do worse than start right here.
