*** I managed to get a copy of the Deluxe version of Paul's New album today. I've only listened to it once so far and my first impression is that it is a good McCartney album with a few of the tracks being excellent. There are a few acoustic numbers but most of the songs have a bit of an experimental type sound to them. To some degree the album is sort of like a more commercial sounding Fireman album. The deluxe album has 15 tracks with one not being listed on the back. While the main version has 12. I'd recommend the deluxe since I really enjoyed the bonus tracks.
*** I know there is always that one faction of Beatles fans who always say Paul's lost it just about every time the man comes out with a new album. But in my opinion Paul has actually done some of his most interesting post Beatle work during the latter part of his career. And I know some will bring up Kisses on the Bottom but that was mainly a covers album and also not in the pop/rock category.
**I agree with you, really admire Paul for sticking to his guns. Chaos, Electric Arguments and now this really rate highly in terms of Paul's solo works. I've only heard New a couple of times, but love the acoustic numbers Early Days and Hosanna, Queenie Eye and Appreciate are also gems. Hope it does well!!
*Where can I hear the new album? Is it streaming anywhere?
To the best of my knowledge the album isn't streaming anywhere. I just got lucky in that an independent music store near me usually tends to put new albums out a few days before they are supposed to be on sale. Since it's the second single from the album, I think you might be able to hear the song "Queenie Eye" on You Tube. Plus there are a few videos of Paul performing some of the new songs live. Although in my opinion the recorded versions on the album sound better.
I personally think most McCartney fans should enjoy the album New. Even at 71, Paul is not afraid to experiment a bit but at the same time that doesn't prevent the songs from still being catchy as most Paul songs are. Out of 15 tracks there were about two songs I didn't care for while the others all ranged from good to excellent in my opinion.
