I think I like it but I might want to wait for a better sounding version of it. I think he's drumming as well. But so far I've liked what I've heard.

Default Fine Line...Thumbs down

Heard the Fine Line mp3. Average Mccartney melody, although the chorus at the end of the song reminded me of the 70s Who. But, its another one of Paul's "message" songs (see Ebony & Ivory, Peace in the Neighborhood, Yound Boy etc.) that I dont particularly like. I prefer the irreverent Macca of the 70s who sang about love, people, places, and things whithout any message or ambigous lyrics. Just my preference.

Heck, I was not even meaning that I would PREFER for him to do that... I was just asking the question..., for discussion's sake... just idly wondering myself why he had not repeated that (have a Steve Miller on a track, ect), not just on this new album, but on any the albums he's done...

I was just "suggesting" it, as in "hmm, why hasn't he done more often ?"

I don't care either way...

My best example to resume it (for me), is this...

I love the two "McCartney" albums (very "solo" efforts), but I also very much love "Off the ground" (very "group-like" album).

Or, as far as guest-stars, I really love "Young boy" (with Miller) but I can think of one or two songs, on which Paul had "big names" with him, that I REALLY don't like.

As long as it comes off "good" (and even that is subjective), I'm fine with it.

I was like that when I was a huuuuuuuuuuge ex-fab fan and it's even more so the case now that I'm not so much on their band-wagon...

It's like Roy (yeah, I just HAVE to mention him again, LOL), yes, I would have loved for him to do just one last song with Joe Melson on "Mystery Girl" but he didn't, and I'm fine with that, because the album came off great...
... however, though the word "should" is a bit strong, or seen to be strong, one can always say that he or she "wishes" that Paul do this or that on his album because, it just came to me... that WE buy the albums ($$$$) !

... so we should at least be able to give our opinions on how we think an album should be done.

Yes. But also you're a fan of the music he records, and if he didn't record albums that you like you wouldn't be a fan. But that isn't to say you can't be dissapointed by some albums.

And wishing Paul would record a sudden way isn't a guarnantee that it will be a good album, hence the examples I gave before. To come back to what you said about high profile artists. I don't think it would work anymore like it did with Stevie Wonder or Michael Jackson. Besides yes it boosted the sales of those albums, but I can't say that the songs were among the best he ever did. Ofcourse that doesn't mean that the results would be bad if he record anyhing with an artist of today, but I can't see the need.

It's all very personal anyway, what one people wishes to see another one don't. Anyway the problem with me isn't discussing what we like to see, it was some examples of what I read lately that came off like Paul can never do any good. Its always he should do this, or he should do that. And I myself prefer to discuss an album once it has been released. All the talk about what the album should sound like got a bit to much.

... what I meant was, we can always say that we WISH, for an album to be such-or-such a way...

And like I mentioned, I liked some of the "solo Paul" albums, and some of the "Paul with band" albums, so no... there is no "absolute" in these matters, only "personal preferences".

... and it's not just for Paul's albums...

I just heard 'Fine Line' and I like it. Now I can't wait to hear the album. I went to aolmusic.com and heard it. They said it will be on their website for 24 hours.

Default Fine Line

Hey, just noticed that the title rhymes...
Well, here´s the cover of the first (and only?) single "Fine Line"...

[IMG][/IMG]

...isn´t it SENSATIONAL?! Anyway, thought you might like to see it.
Did he draw it? What do you think? I saw quite good drawings by him, I think it was in the "Anthology" book...
...and why is it a right hand? WE lefthanders must stick together!

... ha, just like for "Choose Love", I won't exactly rush to get it when it comes out... unless I find out that he duets with "Left Wilbury" on one of the songs...

A few days late, but I FINALLY got to listen to it this morning and on first listen, I quite like it. I thought the lyrics were pretty good and it chugged along quite nicely. I'm looking forward to hearing it on better speakers than the tinny little ones attached to my work computer and hearing it louder than "barely audible, so as not to annoy the boss".

I, too thought the lyrics were quite good and the song progressed well. It DOES bring "Flaming Pie" to mind, but it certainly stands on its own. All in all, I think this is quite a good work.

I personally don't feel I am in any position to dictate to Paul, whom I have the highest regard for as an artist what he should and should not record and the people he should and should not record with. While I didn't feel his songs with MJ or Stevie Wonder were among his best, neither did I feel that he should not have recorded with them. If there is any "should" involved, it is Paul should do whatever he feels is right and whatever his own Musical Muse is dicating to him. This is ALL subjective; just as I never cared for "Say, Say, Say" is not to dismiss the song altogether. Plenty of others like it; well and good. As for this newest collection, I will reserve all judgment until I hear it in its entirety. Already I am looking forward to this.

And it sounds better than the AOL first listen, in vocal terms.

McCARTNEY: 'MY NEW ALBUM IS BETTER THAN THE BEATLES' MUSIC'

Sir Paul McCartney is convinced his new solo album will prove more popular than any of the discs he made in legendary foursome The Beatles.

The 63-year-old expects his eagerly-awaited album "Chaos And Creation In The Back Yard" to become an instant hit when it's released next month and believes it will stand the test of time.

He says, "It could turn out to be one of the greatest things I've ever done.

"The songs are not over with quickly and I hope it means it's not going to be one of those albums that comes and goes. This one could hang around for a long, long time."
