Love Chaos and Creation. Except the hyper syrupy "Follow Me" – but there's one of those on nearly every album.

The album's very much in the style of "Appreciate" – and "Scared" sounds like it's right off Chaos and Creation.

the album isn't fun and bouncy, but it's got depth and sincerity with great arrangements similar to NEW. It was recorded during an emotionally down period for McCartney, and there is that theory that artists do their best work when they're down….

Interesting. I absolutely adore "Follow Me". To each his own.

While I'm resurrecting dead McCartney album threads…

I got this about a week ago, and I LOVE it. It's beautiful. Every single song is fantastic. Most are fantastic. Jenny Wren and Friends To Go are masterpieces. Especially Jenny Wren. (By the way, only he could have a song as beautiful as Jenny Wren be the third (arguably fourth, with Calico Skies) most beautiful song he's written.)

Fine Line and Promise To You Girl (and to a lesser extent, Friends To Go) are nice uptempo songs to contrast the gloomy tone of the rest of the album. Riding To Vanity Fair creeps me out deeply, by the way. 

So basically this is his best solo work. Or second to Band On The Run depending on the time of day. But it's close anyway. Great album.

Seeing as there a lot of CaCitB lovers Beatles Radio Waves, has a series of boots that chronicle the promotion Paul gave for the album around the time of its release – Chronicles in the Backyard. Not heard any of them yet but they look intriguing.

The following users say thank you to meanmistermustard for this useful post:

my favourite album … with too much rain as my fav track. i love every single song on this album. along with flaming pie and ram, this has to be his finest. i found chaos & creation when i was in a very low mood, and it had a deep impact on me. i love it, though, maybe because it's different. oh, and it made me learn to play the guitar. THAT'S how much i like it :)
