I listened it to it a couple times the day it came out (on the way to work and on the way home), but I wasn't thrilled about it. I've been turning it on in the car almost every day since, though, and it's really grown on me. Reminds me of a not-quite-as-superior-NEW.

I'm really not digging the music video for Fuh You. Why would they have a 14 year old lip syncing to a 76 year old's voice?

I wonder how Beatrice and Paul's grandchildren feel when someone comes up them and says, "I heard your grandpa's new album." I wonder how they react. I wonder if they like grandude's new music.

Yeah that was the surprising thing to me, that he's reaching parts of his old range again. Maybe he's had voice coaching.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

It was sitting next my stereo since release day, unopened. I finally listened to it in the car yesterday while running errands. I enjoyed it through 'People Want Peace', figuratively fell asleep through the next four tracks and then was happily awoken by 'Caesar Rock' and 'Despite Repeated Warnings'. I haven't yet heard the final two tracks but am hopeful. Paul tends to end his albums on a high note - something he no doubt picked up somewhere along the way. george-martin

I will give it a proper sit-down listen all the way through soon. First impressions are that it's a nice album.

Taken me ages to get into it and like it.........But it always does.

Worth the effort though. How old is he......??

Glad to have it.

 

 

Here's an example for the guitar players amongst us how simply Paul makes a tune come into being.........

 

Nothing to it........Another classic.....I'm still 'appy with you Paul.

Always a good sign when the price isn't quoted. As my mam likes to say "if you have to ask, you can't afford it".

 

Looks like a load of tat anyways- givemegivemegiveme.

That is fecking ridiculous!!! $ to £ conversion appears to make it around £280!!!

For two new songs, an extended Who Cares, and four live tracks.

Makes his last two overpriced Archive releases look cheap.

Yeah but you get a 500 piece puzzle and who doesn't want that? Plus you can recreate the card scene in 'A Hard Day's Night ' with the playing cards so really you should be paying Paul more for such an opportunity as owning this.

 

From Wogblog

On the 17th of May, the audio content will be released in a cheaper package, without all the goodies.

Who Cares getting an extended take, I wonder how similar it will sound to the extended take of Its All Too Much. The intros are quite similar.

Found the 2-disc version for less than list price so I ordered it.

I really wish he would stop doing this so completists have to buy the album twice though.

I already bought Get Enough too.

I may keep the edition with the band around it if the packaging differs enough.

Frank Sinatra's party is a fun song. I kept the original CD because it has the fold-out artwork.
