Chaos and Creation in the Backyard

(EMI/Mike McCartney/MPL Communications)

















Paul McCartney's latest album.
I got it as a birthday present, and having at last listened to it, I can say it is good. Possibly his best work since Flowers in the Dirt, although there was some very good songs on Flaming Pie
Like a lot of people, I think McCartney is capable of very great work, sans Beatles (which goes without saying), but that sometimes he lets himself down. Nigel Godrich has certainly given Macca the collaborative foil that he needs here.
Tracks I think are worth listening to inc 'Fine Line', Jenny Wren', 'English Tea', 'Too Much Rain' and 'This Never Happened Before'.
Joby Talbot's orchestration work (He of The League of Gentlemen and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fame) is also a treat.
