My first impression was "my god what has he done" but after listening to it for a couple of times it started to grow on me. Maybe reading IT by Stephen King at that same time had something to do with it. The music was complementary to the book. Weird and sometimes not of this world. Together with Ram, Flaming Pie and Back to the Egg this album shows Paul at his best. Written and performed together with Eric Steward this album is one of the best ever made. Press to Play is just as experimental as Revolver or Sgt Peppers' from his Beatles past. Maybe because there are no commercially attractive songs on it it was written off as bad by the so-called critics. If you only like the Macca of Silly Love Songs this one is not for you but if you want to hear what this guy is capable of buy it, listen to it and enjoy.
