That's funny- I always took Surprise as Paul Simon's Press To Play- he really let's Eno get into it too much IMHO on some songs that otherwise would be fine (How Can You Live in the Northeast?)
I like it- thought it was a **** effort- just not my absolute fave. I'd rank it where I rank Driving Rain.
I certainly see where you're headed with the whole general feel...it's just that I really don't care for "Press To Play" much at all (save for 3 or so songs) while I obviously adore "Surprise". I love Eno on it, & feel the meshing is as seamless as the African influence is on "Graceland" for example. And I actually really dig "Driving Rain" myself (though I dig "Surprise" more), & it would pretty strong within the Macca albums I think are great...
I- C&CITBY, FP, BOTR
II- Ram, BTTE, TOW, MAF, EA (Macca as Fireman), OTG
III- V & M, FITD, "DRIVING RAIN"
IV- McCartney, RRS
