Spot on Chris this is pure Macca.

Yeah, on first glance it's 'New', but it's pure him. Most songs seem to hark back to something he's touched on before. But there seem to be all his eras here.

Like the drum break before the chorus in Queenie Eye is SO McCartney it might as well come with its eyebrows arched.

it seems like every day there is a different song from this very deep album that I just randomly start humming.

even the bonus songs have had their moment.

right now it's the very George-y turned out.

when listening to EARLY DAYS does anyone Out There get the feeling that it would be a Great Song for CS&N to cover I can totally here them harmonizing perfectly on the bridge and chorus to bad they aren't doing any thing any more

Chris, agree with you about different songs popping into your head. I think nearly every song on the CD has gone around and around in my head (like on a tape loop) at one time or another in the last couple of weeks.

BTW, the two bonus tracks should have been on the album, proper. Either make it a 15 track album (instead of 13, including the hidden "Scared"), or if you have to lop off two songs to make room for "Turned Out" and "Get Me Out Of Here," cut "I Can Bet" (which is similar in it's power pop, hook-filled style to "Turned Out" but not quite as good), and either "On My Way To Work" or "Looking At Her."

jmonti476, yes, I could hear CS&N doing "Early Days," although the lyrics are pretty personal to Paul.

and to expand on magnus' claims regarding the Japanese edition...that copy has higher differences in the highs and lows on the album. having gotten the opportunity to digest both...it sounds more like the he/they are playing it right in front of you. there is a much bigger soundstage. and there is more separation on the individual instrumentation. in a time when producers just turn everything on the soundboard up to 11...this one is the best sounding cd I've heard in forever. it's easy for me to say this now...but it was worth the wait.

:-W ...mike ??

where's the 'flippin' the bird' smiley... :-D

kinda makes one wonder why we all so often (or at all) have inferior processes and products as the industry standard...and why so many 'artists' put up with it where their 'art' is concerned

Chris, seriously, the Japanese CD has a better SOUND mix/soundscape? If so...WHY would McCartney do that? Does he think his Japanese audience appreciates music more than us Westerners? I don't get it.

But, if you're serious, and if that is true...I'm going to have to get me a Japanese import copy.
