Product Description


Enlivened and challenged by his song-writing collaboration with Elvis Costello, who co-wrote three songs here, McCartney made one of his best albums of the 1980s with Flowers in the Dirt. The Costello tracks, "My Brave Face", "You Want Her, Too", and "That Day Is Done", are complex and acerbic, qualities rarely applied to songs penned by McCartney alone. Yet Sir Paul rises to the occasion on "Put It There", a touching remembrance of his father, and some of his best pop-rockers in a while, such as "This One", "Figure of Eight", and "Rough Ride". --Daniel Durchholz

4.0 out of 5 stars Return To Form 12 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD
After the questionable output from Paul post Tug Of War here was the long awaited return to form. And by no coincidence,in time for a huge world tour:
My Brave Face Written with Elvis Costello,this is simply a great single and a great opener. Wonderful bass line by the way 9/10
Roughride interesting work out which was played live on the tour 1989/90. Not bad 7/10
You Want Her Too Less successful Costello collaboration which some reviewer at the time compared to Rubber Soul for some reason. It's OK 6.5/10
Distractions Pleasant,a little better than Footprints (1986) from the same genre 7.5/10
We Got Married Remarkable, this song works well on all levels 9/10
Put It There Totally charming song, tribute to McCartney Senior. 10/10
Figure Of Eight Let down by the production,on the album version at least,but there is a melody in the middle eight so I like this overall 7/10
This One Catchy but too repetitive. Bit like the new single New (2013) 7/10
Don't Be Careless Love Not good, should not have made the cut 3/10
That Day Is Done Wonderful song,great production, great vocal 9/10
How Many People OK reggae song 6.5/10
Motor Of Love Has some nice moments but goes on too long 6.5/10
Ou Est The Soleil? OK Dance number 6/10

So as you can see this album,to use the vinyl analogy,is rather let down by Side 2.But for the first time since Tug Of War (1982) we could celebrate more than occasional magic at last.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flowers in the dirth- The hidden gem 28 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When I first started to listen to Beatles music it was way back in 1989. Just by coincidence , it was the year Paul had released the magnificent Flowers in the Dirt. As I listened to it, it certainly triggered me to handling all the Beatles and related albums. The reason for such an impact can easily be described as the beatle magic you can see in all songs.
The songs start with a catchy rocker , my brave face , co written with Costello ( I am a fan of him as well ) simply catches the listener, with a message that the album was a quite melodic one. I would strongly belive that my brave face can have such an effect on everybody.
The album contains some McCartney classics, like many of them, which are not recognized and credited by the public. We can name them the hidden gems, any listener would agree with me, when they listen to the magnificent distractions, which is a melodic sad tune, one of Paul's best melodies I belive. To this day, I can not stop tears filling my eyes when I listen to distractions for the 1000th time maybe. It is that wonderful.
An other gem, which is Put it there, it is a McCartney miracle written in only one go as he pointed out. It is an acoustic song , a style which I find most appreciate for Paul. Being a kind of an acoustic guitar player myself, I think that he uses the acoustic guitar very effectly, his playing with nail style. Very yesterday-ish.
This one, we got married,how many people,that day is done,rough ride,figure of eight,motor of love,oue est la solleil,don't be careless love and the bonus tracks in my own cd are all wonderful. I have to comment on each of them as I did for the previous ones but I don't think that there will be enough space for that. Shortly, these are all wonderful Macca songs, which the listener never gets bored of.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flowers but no dirt. 12 July 2008
By Flickering Ember TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is my favourite solo/Wings offering from Paul McCartney. Also, two songs on here are co-written and sung as a duet with Elvis Costello, who also recorded his own solo version of a track off this album called That Day Is Done. Through this album, I discovered Elvis Costello's music, for which I am very grateful.

Although I have been into Macca for 20 years now, this is one of the few albums he has done where there is not one single bad song or one I'd have to skip over. Of course, some tracks are stronger/weaker than others but that's par for the course.

The two songs he duets on with Elvis Costello are especially poignant and brilliant. It is like Lennon/McCartney mark two, because Elvis has a very sharp, ascerbic, sarcastic intelligence and wit meaning he came back with some excellent lines and these 2 songs; My Brave Face and You Want Her Too are musical mastership at their best.

Chico Mendes was the inspiration behind How Many People, a funky foray into reggae; a brave mood for a middle aged white man written off by many as a soppy balladeer.

Motor Of Love is a wonderful 80s power ballad and even though it is, the song is brilliant.

My favourite Paul McCartney song of all time, The Loveliest Thing, is the last song on this album and it is well worth a listen.

Other highlights are This One and Figure Of Eight which were popular singles back in the day!!

3.0 out of 5 stars MACCA & COSTELLO - PUTTING ON A BRAVE FACE 28 July 2008
Format:Audio CD
Paul McCartney's solo career has always been a patchy affair - for every Band On The Run there was a Wild Life - and some of his biggest hits have been the most saccarine and ropey songs (Ebony & Ivory, Pipes Of Peace, Frog chorus). Critically the 80's were'nt great for Macca. The hits kept coming but the quality of the albums and singles took a severe nosedive.
So the arrival of 1989's Flowers In The Dirt was something of a second coming. Fired up by his collaborations with Elvis Costello and finally able to accept his role as a Beatle, Paul turned out an album that was his best for a decade. The Beatley influences are all over it - the jangling guitars, harmonies, melodic bass playing (his Hofner came out of mothballs) and perfectly realised songs.
The tracks co-written with Costello remain the best - 'My Brave Face' is perfect powerpop with a smart lyric and a huge chorus, 'You Want Her Too' is dripping with sarcasm and great one liners and 'That Day Is Done' is understated and stately. McCartney himself contributed the beautiful 'Distractions' - one of his best post Fabs ballads, the rocking Figure Of Eight, 'This One' and the Dave Gilmour assisted 'We Got Married'. Fine songs all and proof that the muse hadn't entirely deserted.
The album received positive reviews and McCartney embarked on a massive world tour that would see him fill almost half the nightly set with Beatles classics - many of which had never been performed live - ever.
Flowers In the Dirt isn't as good as Band On The Run or Flaming Pie but it's still up there with the best of his solo work.
