How Do You Like Your Macca?
Nice and pleasant, but the critical hype didn't elevate Paul McCartney's 2005 Chaos and Creation. Too bland for me, McCartney needs at least a rocker or two an album. Memory Almost Full is better because it's less labored. Most of the tracks were started before Chaos, but you wouldn't know it. The two leadoff tracks are the singles and you can hum them like the best of Wings. After that McCartney a couple of winning rockers and a suite about the end of his life. When McCartney doesn't care his albums are flat. On this one he generally likes his material, and for once so can we. It's probably his best album of new stuff since Tug Of War.
