iTunes Review

Paul McCartney’s first album of original material in six years lives up to its NEW title. Recorded in part at London’s Abbey Road Studios and with a fleet of top-notch producers, from Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse) and Paul Epworth (Adele) to Ethan Johns (Kings of Leon) and Giles Martin (son of Beatles producer Sir George Martin), NEW pulses with current energy and legendary talent. Coming after the sunset-feel of 2007’s Memory Almost Full and a 2012 album of traditional pop and jazz standards (Kisses on the Bottom), NEW isn't the sound of a 71-year-old rocker but of a vital musician hitting his spots. Aside from the Beatles history lesson of “Early Days,” McCartney focuses on a musical authority and melodic sensibility that’s timeless and up to date. A sense of psychedelia filters through tracks like “Save Us,” “Alligator,” “New," and “Everybody Out There,” along with a sense that he’s only getting started.

Listen What The Man Says: APPRECIATE

Look, it's not a late-60s Beatles album, or a mid-70s Wings joint. It's 21st century Paul! The first six tunes are terrific. You'll hear all sorts of sounds that bring you back to his early records: I hear a little "Mother Nature's Son" in "Early Days," a little "I Am The Walrus (a John tune)" in "Queenie Eye." "Alligator" sounds like it could be a great new Coldplay tune that critics adore for its Beatles-esqueness. But it's the 2nd half of the album that's really NEW - starting with the tune, APPRECIATE. It doesn't sound like anything he's done before and it's great. I didn't love everything in the back half of the album the first time through, but it quickly grew on me. The last tune, "The Road" is obviously about Abbey Road, and it's brilliant. Bottomline is Paul's voice is still in fine form, he can still compose circles around songwriters who grew up idolizing him, and he's enlisted the help of young producers to teach him a few new tricks. Listen what the man says, and APPRECIATE!

Current and fresh. Well written !

Still writing songs that puts current artists to shame. This album takes a dose of wings and classic Beatles mixed with a new rock sound.

Sir Paul's Best Album Yet

These are all great tracks. Young artists would do well to listen to this album.


Genre: Rock

Out of all the former Beatles, Paul McCartney by far had the most successful solo career, maintaining a constant presence in the British and American charts during the '70s and '80s. In America alone, he had nine number one singles and seven number one albums during the first 12 years of his solo career, and in his native United Kingdom, his record was nearly as impressive. McCartney's hot streak began in 1970, when he became the first Beatle to leave the group. A little more than a year after the...
