I was disappointed with McCartney II, Pipes of Peace, Press To Play and Off the Ground. You could tell the brilliance was there on some of the songs but its like Paul didn't want to be brilliant from start to finish of an album but prove that he was just and ordinary guy by including mundane songs on his albums. Once he accepts that he is an extraordinary guy you get Flaming Pie and Driving Rain.
Erm....I think if anyone was capable of brilliance all of the time, they would provide it. To say that he "didn't want to" or included things to show he was a regular guy is kind of funny. He ALWAYS wants to be perfect, but sometimes things don't work out for the best. I like most of POP and PTP, btw. To each his own. But dont ever think the man doesn't try or aspires to be mediocre. He is human--he makes mistakes. He expects greatness. His standards are very high. He is NOT perfect.
