Thanks to Amazon, who let me download the album this morning before I set off to work because I've ordered the CD from them (which better be on my doormat when I get home or there'll be trouble!)
My car journey to work is roughly 5 songs long, so just had a bit of a listen....
Save Us - Good Macca rocker, the song sounding very ABBA-esque to me, imagine the verses of Lay All Your Love On Me being covered by a rock band and you're not far off. Good strong opening track.
The next 2 songs, Alligator and On My Way To Work, both passed me by a little, not immediate attention grabbers, but I was negotiating a busy dual carriageway and roundabouts at the time!
Queenie Eye - Very interesting, a lot to listen to here, good driving beat, a little reminiscent of I Am The Walrus in places, and then there's the lyric "O-U-T spells out" with its obvious Beatles connotations. This led me to think that maybe that was a line Paul wrote in the Beatles song (I'd always assumed it was John, and maybe it was). What is it about an odd little lyric like "O-U-T spells out" that gets it in to 1 song, never mind 2 !?
Early Days - Wow. Just wow. If any song makes you stop and think "hang on a minute, this guy singing this, that's no ordinary guy, that's Paul McGodDamnMcCartney" then this is it. Musically very reminiscent of the highlights of the Johnny Cash/Rik Rubin collaborations.
And then I arrived at work.... the voyage of discovery continues with another 5 songs when I go home!
