Biography

It is the eternal question for an artist of Paul McCartney’s stature: what next? What next when you have… well, that list of achievements, with even the long-touted standards album now ticked off with last year’s ‘Kisses On The Bottom’, hardly needs re-iterating. On one level, you might reasonably think that in terms of awards, honours, sales figures, shows and ... Read more in Amazon's Paul McCartney Store

5.0 out of 5 stars McCartney Shows He Still Has It - Great Bonus Tracks! October 15, 2013
Format:Audio CD
For me it is hard to review McCartney albums, I was ten years old with John Lennon was killed and it was the first I'd heard the Beatles and really the first time I was excited by music. My parents had all of the albums so I pretty much listened to the Beatles non-stop from the ages of 10-13. Each and every song imprinted on me and solidly putting McCartney and Lennon as the greatest songwriters in the world in my mind.

I have followed Paul throughout the years and I have to admit there are hits and misses in his catalog, mainly because he is not afraid to take chances and push his music into new territories. I loved his last album of standards "Kisses on the Bottom" but was also ready for a new album of McCartney songs.

Here on "New" McCartney does not disappoint. There are some flashes and homages to previous work but there are also strides into new territory. McCartney worked with four young producers on this album and that may be one of the reasons that things do seem fresh on most of the tracks.

"SAVE US" - The album kicks off with a bang with "Save Us" a song that rocks pretty damn hard with distorted guitars and heavy drum beat. Not bad for a guy now over 70 years old! The track features McCartney doing everything himself except playing the drums and he is in fine form vocally and on the guitar and bass.

"ALLIGATOR" - You can't tell it from the name, but this mid-tempo song is about wanting a companion to be there for all facets of life, someone to share everything with. There's no doubt Paul's new wife is having an effect on his songs and in a good way. Some very cool guitar work here and a bit of a psychadelic synthesizer make this one memorable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Energetic, Edgy And an Inspired Collection October 21, 2013
By Maclen
Format:Audio CD
Paul McCartney's latest offering "New" offers energetic, melodic, sturdy, inspired songs that are edgy and have a distinctly modern sound. It's been noted everywhere that Mr. McCartney has used the services of four different producers here, with Giles Martin putting it all together in a very cohesive package.

Paul works in two modes here, most of the songs he uses his cracker jack touring band and the three songs with Paul Epworth, it's just Mr. Epworth on Drums and Macca on everything else. These compositions contain lots of psychedelic flourishes with fat guitar in a very wide range of styles, there's virtually no one out there offering this kind of varied mature writing that is deceptively complex in its scope and execution.

Paul is all over the map with this one and it makes for quite a ride from beginning to end. "Save Us" opens the proceedings with a spiky punk rocker with a terrific vocal. "Alligator" is an acoustic driven shuffle that is fast paced and edgy with great fuzz tone guitar hooks and a really cool, spacey section that comes out of nowhere. "On My Way To Work" offers solid lyrics where the protagonist describes his daily commute and his girlie magazine reference is priceless, the musical highlight being the heavy oriental sounding passage with substancial guitar. The song "Early Days" is a narrative about his teenage days with John Lennon looking for both inspiration and an audience for their songs, moving and memorable, with a swipe at critics and biographers who weren't there, potent stuff. "I Can Bet" is sort of a modern Wings song that propels along with cheeky vocals, a refrain to die for and a completely unexpected moog synth solo.

First listen impressions:

Save Us - Sounds like late era Wings/early solo (1980s) Macca. The harmonies sound like Wings and the song structure is solid.

Alligator - Starts off with a hint of Lonely Road without the darkness, and If You Wanna, from Flaming Pie. I like this one.

On My Way To Work - A simple track where Paul paints a picture of a day in the life (so to speak). My favorite line, "How can I have so many dreams and one of them not come true?"

Queenie Eye - The piano has a Hello Goodbye vibe to it. I like that he varies his arrangement and it's not a one-level drone pounding away for 3 minutes.

Early Days - His voice is a bit weaker or vulnerable on this one which is very personal it seems talking about starting out a busker looking for gigs. I like how it starts as a narrative story then turns to a reflection of his experience since that time and where he is now with his legacy of The Beatles. pretty cool track! This song is going to leave a mark. His answer to biographers and opinion writers who think John was the band or Paul was just the fluff. Hell, he wrote more hits than ANY Beatle, as part of the band OR as a solo artist.

New - Great track! Bouncy Beatles tunes never tire me out. I love that the title track and first single hits smack in the middle giving you something familiar already to listen to. The harmonies are terrific and tight. Hand claps have returned to pop music! Yes! Another Ringo style drum roll at the end of the track before the harmonies come back is brilliant.

Appreciate - I'll lump this in with Memory Almost Full's "Gratitude" as part of an opus of attitude songs. Next album we will get to hear Thankfulness.

Queenie Eye is definitely the best track with a catchy tune. Paul is running out of material and almost seemed desperate or forced to find something to sing about. Read more

If you ever have a chance, see a McCartney show. I've seen him 5 times from the 70s until today and it's always a great show, and it's wonderful to see young kids decades younger... Read more

His last album had a download card with it, so I bet that's what they'll do with this one as well.
