3.0 out of 5 stars Stick to the day job macca, 3 Nov. 2006
This is not McCartney's finest hour. It's not rubbish. There are some attractive melodies and a couple of interesting moments. But this is no masterpiece and I've got many finer classical CDs in my collection. It's all a bit safe, and a little, well, mediocre. At his best, McCartney is a brilliant writer and performer of pop songs. His last pop/rock album demonstrates that superbly. Give us more "Chaos and Creation" please Paul. Leave the Classical stuff to Messrs Mozart and Beethoven.

4.0 out of 5 stars well worth buying, 18 Sept. 2005
This review is from: Fine Line [2 Track CD] (Audio CD)
This single is well worth buying. Fine Line - the a side - is on the new Macca album "Chaos and Creation in the Backyard." The b-side "The Comfort of Love" is only on this single, and I like it! It's a good tune, has lots of piano, veers between pop and rock, and does it all in three minutes. Excellent!

All serious Macca fans must have this single.

4.0 out of 5 stars still only a four star album, 18 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Let It Be... Naked (Audio CD)
This is a definite improvement on the Phil Spector version of 'Let it Be.' Better choice of tracks, better sound quality, no over-production. In particular, 'the Long and Winding Road' is very different from Spector's effort - the female choir and the strings are gone. However, the 'Naked' cut isn't that different from the version on 'Anthology 3.' In fact, I prefer the Anthology track - McCartney's vocal has more life, and it keeps his 'yeah, yeah, yeah' right at the end, unlike 'Naked.' Admittedly the 'Naked' version includes some nice organ work; presumably by Billy Preston. But the real problem with 'Naked' is that too many songs are medicore, irrespective of how they are produced. 'For you blue', 'Dig a Pony', 'One after 909' and 'I me mine' just aren't that great. Those four songs mean that this album doesn't compare with the Beatles' finest work. So, only four stars.
