MTM---No one was more hoepful during that drought than me. I faithfully bought each album, only to be treated to one, or maybe two, passable songs. But I kept coming back...after ATMP, my faves and maybe his best are: Brainwashed, Cloud Nine, and part of "Somewhere in England". I think you hit it sqaure on the head. I love listening to his better tunes, WAD. Some beautiful stuff...but production-wise and if you measure putput of well crafted songs, macca comes out in front by a mile.
