I listened to it on youtube and aside from the title track and Ding Dong, Ding Dong (as mentioned in my previous comment above) the only other track i found to be of interest was Simply Shady. So Sad was decent but the rest were unremarkable, Hari's On Tour (Express) reminded me of a 70's tv show theme tune.

^ I'll have to listen to Extra Texture again, but overall Dark Horse seemed a bit more energetic, which to me is important to a rock album (though technically the former is not rock, it's more like funk/soul.) I enjoyed Maya Love as well as the above mentioned, but I'll agree Hari's On Tour is nothing too exciting. It starts good for me, but it's too long overall and repetitive in parts.

If you're lonely (or not!), you can talk to me.

Yeah, I was surprised to hear those funk/soul elements in ExTex! But I guess that's the way the winds were blowing in the mid-late '70s. Paul & John (Ringo too?) were having hits in that kinda R&B bag.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at YouTube and Vimeo.

Ya, I gotta agree with you there. At least both Lennon & Harrison have some great, Greatest Hits compilations out there! heart
