Just listened to the album online. Initial impression is I really like 'My Valentine' and 'The Inch Worm'. 'Paper Moon' is pretty good, too.
The rest, I think, will need to grow on me (and probably will). Perhaps it's just not my genre. Though I've always loved the likes of Nat King Cole, I just don't listen to this type of music all that often. Speaking of Nat King Cole, I would have loved to hear Paul's take on something like 'Nature Boy'. I think that would have been a perfect fit here.
Honestly, I wish he'd done the vocals for this about thirty years ago. I've always loved his old demos of this type of stuff, like "After You've Gone', for example.
Still, I will give it some repeated listenings. I remember being underwhelmed by 'Chaos & Creation' the first time I heard it, but it soon grew to be a favorite and remains so.
Listening again to 'The Inch Worm', for me it harkens back a bit to the Wings version of 'Mary Had a Little Lamb'. The child-like voices singing the "2+2 are 4, 4+4 are 8..." remind me the the "La-la, La-la, La-la-la-la-la-la' backing vocals on MHaLL. I say this as a compliment, I really like this one.
