Top Tracks: "That Would Be Something" "Every Night", "Man We Was Lonely"
Too bare for me personally, perhaps a poor idea to release in the immediate aftermath of the break-up of the greatest band in history. The romantic songs are charming, but I think the album could have benefited with more time and a larger band.
This was better than my expectations. I like the romantic songs, the experimental folk feeling and the psychedelic jams
Nothing that great besides Maybe I'm Amazed
FINDING YOUR HOME
But tonight I just want to stay in
And be with you,
And be with you - Every Night
The right girl (or boy) can make all the difference. When she comes along it’s like all of a sudden a huge weight is lifted from your shoulders. From your spirit. You suddenly feel at peace. You realize that unconsciously you had felt somehow incomplete. And this incompleteness caused a striving to make things right. To correct that imbalance. And we unconsciously try to correct that incompleteness with all sorts of stuff - bad tv, drugs, becoming a workaholic, what have you! It's different for everyone. But we are trying to fill a void we didn’t even know was there. And there all kinds of ways to fill that emptiness. Like making charts. lol. Or collecting things fanatically. There’s this pressure of more and more. And then all of suddenly the right girl comes along and BAM… this huge weight is lifted. A weight you didn’t even know you were carrying. And this weight makes us feel that something’s not right. , It makes us hurried. Rushing about our day. Not settled. And when that weight is lifted, you feel this incredible sense of peace and comfort. That you are exactly in the right place and the right time. There is no where else we need to be. Nothing else we need to do. That finally you are in the right place. That you are at home.
There’s a Feeling that you can do - ANYTHING! And she will still love you. Because she knows you. Really, really, knows you. And accepts your for what you are - quirks and all. Especially those quirks. She’s your cheerleader. She’s got you’re back. When you’re with her you have nothing to worry about. And that’s what this album is really all about. And what really tips it off are those instrumentals.. Tracks like “Valentine Day” and “Momma Miss america.” McCartney just doesn’t give a fuck. He’s free. Loose. Just ready to rip and have some fun. Embracing life like we all should. And it’s easy when you’re with the right girl. God knows I’ve been there. So if you find one. Find a girl that truly loves you. Someone who laughs at your jokes, can nurture you when your sick and really looks at you when you’re talking to her. That makes you feel like you’re at home. Embrace it, brothers. Settle down and make a home. Because you’re already there.
WARNING!: Don’t get spoiled. Don’t expect that every woman is going to love you like that. I was blessed to be in several great relationships. Girls who loved me even when I was sick. And I took it for granted. Got those old wandering eyes. Gouge them out, brother. Gouge them out. lol.
Grade: A. This album is a fun, boisterous romp through young love. It instantly brightens my day. It’s care free and easy. Because McCartney didn’t have a care in the world at this point of time. The huge pressure of expectations that were the Beatles had been lifted. He with the love of his life - “The Lovely Linda” - living on a country farm free to do whatever he wanted. And his happiness and confidence fill this record. And fill me when I listen to it. Instantly bringing in the summer and the sun. And like a wild flower after a heavy rain it shoots up my chart to number 17.
Dedicated to my boy, NoisyBeast and his “Lovely Linda.” You guys are the greatest!
Very uneven. Maybe I'm amazed and Junk are outstanding. Every night, That would be something and Teddy bear are ok/good. The rest is weak for McCartney. He might wanted it that way but I don't listen to the guy intentions, just his output record. Overall it's not a good album to listen to IMHO.
Favoritas: Maybe I'm Amazed, Junk, Every Night, Man We Was Lonely, Momma Miss America
Maybe I'm Amazed and not much else.
Not the greatest McCartney album best track 'Every Night 'and 'Maybe I'm Amazed' which I prefer to hear the live version on 'Wings over America',this album sounds like your listening to the demo's maybe it was meant to be that way.
McCartney, was thought of as a disappointment at the time, and in some ways you can understand where the critics were coming from, but time and tide has been a lot kinder to the album, as it is now looked upon a classic lo-fi record. It's got that spontaneous homemade feel to it, and though, on first listen, the album seems like a lot of musical doodling thrown together, repeated plays brings out the quirkiness of the songs/tracks. Off course, maybe I'm amazed, is the one true bona fide McCartney classic, in a way it feels slightly out of place, being so fully formed. Every night, is a lovely cut, and, man we was lonely, has that typical McCartney rock feel to it. Junk, originally attempted at the, let it be/get back, sessions, is beautiful, and, that would be something, another good song. Teddy boy, another Beatles cast off, is enjoyable, even the throwaway opener, the lovely Linda, seems like a perfect fit to the record, on it's own off course, it's nothing, but it works here. One of McCartney's top five, in my opinion.
Hmmm... kinda big fan of Paul McCartney as a bassist and was a little let down by this album. Some fun musical ideas, but seems unfinished and kinda like hey, I'm going to do whatever I want now that I'm not a Beatle.
I agree with MrRetardization.
I think John's albums were much better around this time, which I'm surprised by because I'm kinda more a fan of the Paul stuff (where he sang lead) in the Beatles...
