The missed guitar solo thing happens to me a lot. I didn't even notice the Stairway to Heaven solo the first few times until I listened for it. And that's supposed to be one of the best ever. I still don't know what the Crazy Train solo is. 

I'm gonna go listen to both House of Wax and Mr Bellamy right now and get back to you. 

God, does Paul sing great on House of Wax or what. Such a powerful performance.

That autotuning mess at the end of Feet In The Clouds is horrible. Why?

Agreed his vocal is amazing. Still, it's one of those frustrating songs that's awesome and yet I want to rewrite the third verse for him (see also "Beautiful Night"). Paul! You should totes hire me as your editor! And backup singer! Call me!

The "hidden in the yard, underneath the wall" part is intriguing. I wonder if it has anything to do with his recurring childhood dream of digging in the garden with his hands. He only ever found junk until he met John, and then he dreamt it again and found gold. When he told John about it, John said he'd had a similar dream. Shades of this conversation as reported on the Amoralto tumblr:

JOHN: Hey! Did you dream about me last night?

PAUL: [long pause] I can’t remember. 

JOHN: Very strong dream. We both dreamt about it. It was amazing! Different dreams, you know, but I thought you must’ve been there. [inaudible] I was touching you. [inaudible] 

PAUL: Nothing to worry about, though? 

JOHN: Nothing to worry about, no.

I ADORE "Mr Bellamy." Easily my favorite track on the album, and probably in my top ten of solo-Paul songs. It's amazingly cinematic; a little movie plays in my head every time I listen to it. (Paul! You should totes hire me to do your music videos! Call me!)

I think it's about exactly what it sounds like it's about: a man up on a ledge. One of Paul's wonderful character-empathy songs -- a different take on your typical suicide story that rings all the truer for its uniqueness (reminds me very much of "Back on My Feet"). When he's on his game, Paul's great at the Aristotelian "surprising yet inevitable" story.

I'm not too into the rest of MAF; I like "Vintage Clothes" and "That Was Me," and would like "Feet in the Clouds" if not for that deadly "very very very very" business. "Only Mama Knows" is a good song but I rarely want to listen to it. I have affection for "Ever Present Past" but that's down to the adorable video. The B-side "Why so Blue" is FABULOUS -- that it isn't on the album is a damn shame.

Then of course there's the problem of Kahne's production, which is wayyy too compressed and loud. It distorts the audio. Very unfortunate.

Huh, I had no idea that Mr. Bellamy was a song! I thought it was just a beatlesbibler.

By a stroke of luck, today is one of those days when (for whatever reason) youtube videos aren't blocked at work, so I can see exactly what that is! (It's Paul's "Mr. Bellamy", duh.)

When I get a spare 3:39 today, I'll give it a listen. Probably during lunch when there's few people nearby to be distracted. Thanks Ahhh Girl!

That was not bad at all, pretty good in fact! I couldn't hear many of the minor details on this crappy computer speaker but I liked what I heard (except the annoying drumming). Nice clarinet bit at the end. Further listenings will reveal more...

Thanks for posting it AG! (And thank you too, asleep-at-the-switch FortiGuard gatekeepers!)

Glad you liked it Von Bontee!

I'm learning. I've caught a thing or too, but I still have a ways to go in knowing when/when not to act. Poor @Zig  and @Joe  are probably face palming themselves daily over the questions I'm bugging them with in the background. They have the patience of saints.
