According to AllMusic 's William Ruhlmann, " Graceland became the standard against which subsequent musical experiments by major artists were measured. These songs are astute and exciting, spit-shined with the gloss of production that bears a lot of hallmarks of the era but somehow No More Rules - Centaur (3) - Power World (Cassette refused to age. Taken as a whole, the album offers tremendous insight into how we live in our world and how that changes as we get older.
Simon fashioned a record which was truly, blindingly original, and — listening to it a quarter of a century on — modern and timeless.

That's the way music grows and is shaped. There was the almost mystical affection and strange familiarity I felt when I first heard South African music. Later, there was the visceral thrill of collaborating with South African musicians onstage.
Add to this potent mix the new friendships I made with my band mates, and the experience becomes one of the most vital in my life. All tracks are written by Paul Simonexcept where noted. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Paul Simon. Initial recordings were made in JohannesburgSouth Africa. My typical style of songwriting in the past has been to sit with a guitar and write a song, finish it, go into the studio, book the musicians, lay out the song and the chords, and then try to make a track.
With these musicians, I was doing it the other way around. The tracks preceded the songs. We worked improvisationally. While a group was playing in the studio, I would sing melodies and words—anything that fit the scale they were playing in. I don't like the idea that people who aren't adolescents Album) records. Adolescents make the best records. Except for Paul Simon. Except for Graceland. He's hit a new plateau there, but he's writing to his own age group.

As to answer your question while mounted centaurs are not considered to be controlled mounts and as such they have full access to actions normal characters have though there are no rules stating that centaurs can consider their lower halves to be their mount and i would severely advise against ruling it as such as that would essentially give the centaur twice as many actions as a normal player.
As for your second question your player is wrong. You provoke an attack of oppurtunity and the attacker can choose to attack you. You can either control the mount or allow it to act independently. Intelligent creatures, such as dragons, act independently. You can control a mount only if it has been trained to accept a rider. Domesticated horses, donkeys, and similar creatures are assumed to have such training. The initiative of a controlled mount changes to match yours when you mount it.
It moves as you direct it, and it has only three action options: Dash, Disengage, and Dodge. A controlled mount can move and act even on the turn that you mount it.

The general rules do not permit interleaving of actions between creatures, even when two creatures have the same initiative score, and there's no special exception for mounted combatants.
