That's a really good mix.

Here's me seeing things when they aren't really there.

Yesterday when I was listening to the song Angry from this album, it hit me that Paul could be talking about/reflecting on the break up with John in 1970.

What the hell gives you the right to tell me what to do with my life
Especially when you made a mess of every chance you had of success.
Look at you…Just look at you, I said I'm angry just looking at you.

I'm sick and tired of sitting back and listening
To all of your clap-trap.
If you could get me to take the rap I guarantee
You'd leave me with a backslap.
Push me to the left, push me to the right,
Try to take me out of the way.
Even if you kick me off the edge of the world,
You're still going to hear me say… (chorus)

I can't begin to tell you all the reasons
Why you're making me crazy.
I've got so many answers.
Like you're stupid, like you're crooked,
Like you're lazy.
Hit me with your left, hit me with your right,
Hit me from the top to the toe.
Even when you chew me up and spit me out,
I'm still going to want to know. (chorus)

I played this thru 6 months or so back and it wasnt as bad as i remembered it to be tho i did find it overproduced.

Can't say anything was particularly memorable; 'Good Times Coming/Feel The Sun' being one of the better ones tho the lyrics are pretty weak. 'Footprints' is nice but the alternate mix (posted earlier) is so much better as its got room to breathe instead of being buried under all the additional bits and bobs Paul added. Can't listen to 'Press' as i don't want to hear how Paul and Linda need some relief ("Maybe we should have a secret code, before we both get ready to explode. When you want me to love you, just tell me to press."). Sorry Paul but no. 'Talk More Talk' still irritated the hell out of me and whilst 'Angry' is catchy Paul is so far from convincing in his delivery its laughable.

It's a shame the production is so wretched on "Press To Play" as i always felt there were a lot of really good ideas on this album.

It's grown on me. At first I hated the 80's production. I like Pretty Little Head and Only Love Remains a lot.

It's funny I can't get into anything of his since the wings of the 70's, but now in the 2013-2015, he's sounding cool again! ahdn_paul_06
