My red vinyl (2492/3000) finally arrived today.

  

I've heard a lot of people criticizing all the different versions of this album, that's it's a money grab and all that.  And I'm sure it is.  But it also reminds me of Paul's artitic side, and the way they released the White Album - like it was a work of art, with the plain white cover and the number on the front.  IIRC, Paul was heavily involved in that decision.  I could see all these different variations and limited editions appealing to Paul's artistic bent.  And IMO it is a very clean, elegant design, with the die on the cover and the different colors available.

I've listened to the first 4 songs so far

Long Tailed Winter Bird

Find My Way

Pretty Boys

Women and Wives

and I like every one.  Sure, sometimes his voice isn't as great as it used to be, and maybe there isn't a "special" song that clearly rises above the rest, but these four are engrossing to me as long as I stop **expecting** and just let them wash through me. 

I'll re-listen with lyrics on the screen, because I didn't always catch them.

That's pretty much what I think about the album.  It's a pretty strong collection, but there isn't that one killer track or song that stands out, in the album or in Paul's career.  I think Kiss of Venus comes the closest to being memorable, just because it has such a strong melody.

I'm back here to let y'all know...

 

*Drum Roll* a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

 

...that I f&@*ing love this album. Chaos & Creation, Memory Almost Full , New and now this - whoever thinks Macca 'solo' was great in the 70s only is missing out. I enjoy every song, Pretty Boys and Women & Wives are the 'weakest' (still good), the rest I love. My fav is probably Deep Down, Slidin' is badass, Kiss of Venus is beautiful, When Winter Comes reminds me totally of RAM (enhanced by the lyrics about farm and stuff) and Deep Deep Feeling is really special when I truly engage in it.

Interesting that Paul said Women and Wives was his favorite track.  That's the type of thing that can change day to day though.  There was a stretch last week when Pretty Boys was stuck in my head for three or four days straight.  The subject seems odd, but you can't help but think Paul's being labeled "the cute one" contributed to him writing it.

I like Slidin' and Find My Way AND Lavatory Lil for tremendous anti-Heather Mills lyrics that would have made Lennon proud. Right out of "How Do You Sleep?"

Winterbird could have used some editing...

That's just what I thought – I imagined him watching his daughter Mary photograph people, models probably, and harkening back to his youthful days as a Pretty Boy whom the cameras loved.

I confess to having been a little disappointed by it so far but 'deep deep feeling' is amazing, just an incredibly produced track. You listen to it then you want to immediately play it again because you cant quite work out what happened there and how it developed.

Some of the more acoustic based tracks are ok, but Pauls voice has deteriorated a fair bit. There aren't too many memorable individual tracks on here compared to his previous 2 albums, but it flows together quite well.

I'm surprised some people are disappointed in it.  I actually think it's one of his better albums, more consistent than most.  It's true his voice has suffered, but he still gets his ideas across.  Nothing wrong with being 78, beats the alternative.

Yeah, and about the whole voice thing - I noticed his vocal aging mostly in YouTube videos of live performances, not on studio tracks. And not doing concerts since rockdown has done his voice an extra favour. He doesn't do any gruff rockers like Monkberry Moon Delight or Old Siam Sir anymore, but he doesn't have to. He's still a great singer.

 

I actually think several of his "newer" albums are great and mostly consistent. Flaming Pie , Chaos and Creation, Memory Almost Full , NEW and now this are all great works for me.
