McCartney
« on: April 06, 2013, 03:46:15 PM »

Of all of Macca's solo works, this one has taken me the longest to understand. At first, I dismissed the majority of this album as sloppy, sometimes downright careless....here was a guy, with more talent in his big toe than most of his contemporaries, and this is how he chose to kick off his solo career. "Maybe I'm Amazed", "Every Night" and "Man We was Lonely" were the only tunes that felt as if he'd spent any time at all on...

I am now willing to give the man the benefit of the doubt...perhaps when he began this project, he was just doing a few demos, maybe not. What I hear now is a young man having fun in his home studio, getting away from the pressures of being in the most famous band on earth, a band that is disintegrating by the day. I have particularly warmed to the instrumentals....
