When I first gave this a spin I didn't think it was anything special. I've listened to it about 10 times now and it's grown on me a lot! I thought New was a brilliant song when I first heard it a month back, never got the dislike for that one. The whole album sounds like Paul just kicking back and having fun, rather than Chaos and Memory which I feel are over-produced. Save Us, Early Days, New, Everybody Out There, I Can Bet and Road are my favourites, and like someone else said Appreciate is probably the only song I don't fully appreciate (though to be serious, it reminds me a lot of Gratitude from MAF, which I think is the weakest on that album too). Overall a pretty good listen, I probably prefer Electric Arguments slightly more though, hopefully it's not another 6 years before another 'proper' Paulie album!

By the way, is "Scared" the first case of Paul and John (or any other two Beatles ?) each writing/recording an ORIGINAL song with the same title ?

There was of course Paul's "She's my baby" ("Wings at the speed of sound") but the second song of that title wasn't a "George" song per say, but rather as a Traveling Wilbury
The only one I can think of that comes close is With the Beatles' 'Hold Me Tight' and the song of the same name from 'Red Rose Speedway'.
