I've found that a LOT of songs on this album have that effect. I find myself singing one of the songs that's stuck in my head for days. Sometimes it's "A Certain Softness', other days it's something different.

Thumbs up

Got the album last week !
It took a few listens to really like the songs.
I played it about three times back to back today !
I really like English Tea, Too Much Rain, Jenny Wren.
Normally I never listened to many solo McCartney albums - but the positive reviews for this one made me buy it.
And I was not dissappointed.

I absolutley love Pauls work including this new album too, but is it only me or does it sound like he struggles to sing a few lines of certain songs, i know everyones voice goes after such a long time singing, what does everyone think?

I just received this e-mail, which I have copied:

PM.COM GIFT IDEAS / PARKINSON INTERVIEW AND 'MAKING OF CHAOS AND CREATION...' ON TV THIS WEEKEND


PAUL MCCARTNEY ON UK TV THIS WEEKEND

As previously announced Paul will be appearing this Saturday, 17th December on 'Parkinson'. The programme starts at 22.10 (GMT). The veteran broadcaster chats to Paul about his solo career and work with the Beatles, as well as his latest project, the children's book called ‘High in the Clouds’.

Also on UK TV that night on BBC2 is the documentary 'The Making Of Chaos and Creation In The Backyard'. The broadcast of is scheduled to start at 22.30(GMT). The show contains previously unseen interviews and performances during the creation of Paul’s latest album.


PAUL MCCARTNEY.COM GIFT IDEAS / LAST ORDER INFORMATION

It has been a fantastic year for Paul McCartney. A sell out US Tour followed the release of his critically applauded ‘Chaos and Creation In The Backyard’ album. 2005 also saw Paul publish the ‘High In The Clouds’ book with Geoff Dunbar and Phil Ardagh. Paul also of course opened and closed the Live 8 spectacular at Hyde Park in July.

Below are a number of seasonal gift ideas related to all of Paul’s main activities this year, plus a few extras that maybe worth treating every McCartney fan!

PLEASE NOTE: The last guaranteed shipping date for UK orders is Friday 16th December 2005.

Chaos and Creation In The Backyard Merchandise

Chaos And Creation In The Back Yard’ was a return to the basics for McCartney. The album successfully fuses his undeniable song writing talents with his unparalleled musicianship. In fact, McCartney is credited with playing the majority of the instruments on the album, which is somewhat reminiscent of “McCartney” (1970) when he was credited with playing all of the instruments. They include the drums, guitar, bass, keyboards, as well as many of the less traditional instruments such as block flute, harmonium and flugelhorn. The album was received with worldwide acclaim by critics and fans alike, hailing it as one of his finest albums ever.

"McCartney continues to surprise. Top notch, moody, brimming with melodic delights." Billboard Magazine

"****. “The tingling sense of a new beginning is palpable. His voice is front and center, as wistful and full of yearning as ever, effortlessly lending these songs a rich sense of emotional conviction. Chaos seduces the listener into a playful world of musical ideas that shimmer and disappear. Rolling Stone Magazine

"****. 'Chaos' ranks among his best albums in years. An intimate, homemade feel from start to finish. Newhouse NewsWire

The album is out now on CD, CD/DVD Special Edition and Vinyl. For video and audio clips, press reviews, interview footage and images, plus the chance to produce a remix with Paul McCartney himself go to www.paulmccartney.com/chaoscreation

Imagine a land where all the animals are free...To the creatures of the woodland, the land of Animalia sounds like a dream - a tropical island where all the animals live in harmony. They are over-shadowed by a much more evil community; the polluted Megatropolis, whose dirty skyscrapers block the horizon.


And then one day, Wirral the Squirrel's woodland is destroyed by developers and he is thrown into the nightmare world of Megatropolis. But Wirral believes in Animalia and he joins with Froggo, a world-class amphibian balloonist, and Wilhamina, a girl squirrel, to lead the enslaved animals of the city to a new life.


So begins an exciting adventure through the mean streets of Megatropolis, over the sea and through the sky. But can Wirral defend Animalia against the wicked Gretsch, who is determined to destroy it once and for all?


Developed out of an exceptional fusion of creative talents, this story explodes on to every page. The plot is fast, furious and funny; the illustrations are full of rich depth and colour and the characters live on long after you have turned the final page. It will delight children of all ages and is sure to become an enduring classic.

I just got this cd and I haven't liked anything new this much in a long time.
I LOVE the trippy music. Good to see Paul this creative these days.
Much of his latter albums seem forced lyrically or musically at times but this one is back to form.
It flows and has a good and natural flow to it.

Did I say that I LOVE the trippy music?

My boyfriend and I purchased the album together -- our first joint purchase, and we've been dating for three years... pathetic, eh?! -- and I love it. My question to anyone who can answer it is: is there any way to put the songs on my iPod? I would really love to have these songs with me all day, every day *sigh*, and I knew when I bought it that there were copy protections on the CD to prevent illegal distribution (fair enough) which I'm not interested in doing... but still, is there any way to get them on my iPod? (PM me if you can help!)

Thanks

I absolutetly adore this album! I love every song on this album (well almost every song) and that's not a lie, though my absolute favorites are How kind of you, A certain Softness (very romantic, but that's just the kind of guy Paul is), Fine line of course ( I will never get tired of that song), At the Mercy ( next to fine line, this is probably the hook song for me can't get it out of my head) and Promise to you girl(Like how it starts off opera like and then kicks the tempo up)
I also like English Tea it's a cute little song.

Honorable mentions goes to:
Friends to Go (This sounds like it should be a theme song to a Tv show, but I really like it, it works).
Too Much Rain (This is the kind of song where I just lock myself up in my room and hit the repeat button and think about all the things that went wrong that day and with my life period and then release *ah* that feels better)
This never Happened Before
Anyway

Don't really care for Follow Me, but I think it just has to grow on me as Does Jenny Wren.

About Driving Rain: what went wrong with that album was two things. The first, it was over produced and the second, is many of the songs felt out of placed among one another, othewise, IMO, it would have been a great album. For anyone who says and agrees with the sentiment that Paul hasn't done anything worth while since his beatle days, I really think you should give his catalog a fair listen, with an unbiased ear. As much as I love the Beatles, they are not the be-alls and end-alls of music. I'm not looking for another beatles... been there, done that, I'm looking for the true Paul, the creative and talented one I've always known him to be. He put a lot of work into this album, even poured his heart and his soul into it, and it worked. Thanks Paul.

Just open itunes and load the cd into your computer. It should just play in itunes and then just save it. Then update your ipod.

'Friends to Go', 'Riding Into Vanity Fair', and 'Anyway' are the highlights for me!

The sounds at the end of 'Anyway' are very similar to Radioheads 'Pyramid Song'.

Who else has noticed that Paul's name reads the same, upside down and straight ?

Fine Line is a very memorable song and one I haven't tired of yet.
Promise to You Girl took some time, but it is also a nice tune.

I discovered the inverted name by accident when I picked up the CD.

I love "Friends to Go" and can't get enough of that one.
