I've enjoyed most of what Paul McCartney has put out, in any musical format, and I was prepared for an interesting experience. But I was surprised myself - the album was in fact more musical and "listenable" than I expected. It is indeed a sound collage, but not, in fact, to the degree that "Revolution 9" was.
I think "Liverpool Sound Collage" is a very well put together album. The similarities to the Fireman albums are perhaps not surprising, considering the fact that both McCartney and Youth have been involved in the collage. I don't think it's quite as good as the Fireman's "Rushes," but on the other hand, "Rushes" doesn't have the Beatles on it.
And whether you want to consider "Liverpool Sound Collage" as part of the Beatles legend or not, it's definitely the Beatles as you've never heard them before.
High points: "Plastic Beetle," "Made Up" and "Free Now".
'Livepool Sound Collage' is as innovative as anything I've ever heard.
I work from home so I have music playing most of my waking hours and 'LSC' has been a twice a day play for months now. It just gets better with every listen. Spin a few times before judging or if you already have it and have only given it a couple of listens and discarded it, get it on again, set your player on repeat and get lost in it's sheer magic.
Paul seems to perform better when he's commisioned to do work, 'Liverpool Oratorio' being another classic example. If you're reading this Paul can I commision you on behalf of Beatles fans all over the planet to do an album with George and Ringo, preferably produced by George Martin, under the name 'The Beatles' and merge your avant garde and classical experience with your trademark melodies.
THE WORLD IS WAITING.....
