They went on and on and on about his voice due to Early days. I like it now - but I think that's because I know the feel he was going for. I think non-obsessives will listen and go "put your feet up love". The presenter (Sean Rocks - can that be a real name?) kept saying after Early Days - "whoa, that needed a rethink of the key there! His voice can't really stand up to this anymore, can it?!" I felt particularly enraged.. He went so far that eventually one of the contributors eventually said that that was the only example of croakiness, and that it added to the song. I started warming to her til she started rambling on that her problem with the album was that "he calls it NEW, but its not new. There are no new sounds here". What does that mean? What is a new sound?! Modern sounds? Road?
"Voice can't stand up to this anymore"? that is about as dumb a comment I have heard as "new sounds"
Of course the key had nothing to do with the way Paul sang on Early Days. The comment about new sounds is absurd. I swear some of these people have pre-determined assumptions in their heads when it comes to Macca instead of just listening. The problem is you can't truly "appreciate" what Paul does by hearing it once through. He has far more depth than most. These reviewers should listen for about a week before they open their mouths!
