Può uno a sessantatré anni realizzare uno dei migliori dischi tra quelli fatti da quando di anni ne aveva ventotto ? Se nei trentacinque che sono passati sono stati più i passi falsi che i lavori riusciti si e per Paul McCartney è andata più o meno così. Dunque, se è lecito parlare con sufficienza dei troppi dischi mediocri disseminati lungo tutta la sua carriera solista, è altrettanto doveroso sottolineare quei lavori ispirati, sobri, con canzoni buone o anche meglio e realizzate con gusto; e pazienza se gli anni migliori nel frattempo sono passati. "Chaos and creation in the backyard" è uno di quegli album, come lo era stato otto anni prima "Flaming pie".

This is one of Paul McCartney's most interesting albums. Chaos and creation, is predominantly acoustic in sound, and is much more challenging in structure than most McCartney records, maybe only his self titled albums from 1970 and 1980 compare. Having said that, the songs here are much more thought out and focused. Opener, fine line, is okay, but it actually one of the less interesting tracks here, in fact to me it sounds like the theme tune to only fool's and horses. How kind of you, is a better example of the album, and like, at the mercy, and, riding to vanity fair, is not predictable. The strongest songs though are the blackbird-like, Jenny Wren, the rubber soul-is, friends to go, the excellent, too much rain, and the beautiful, a certain softness. The rest is fine, like, follow me, and, the slightly tongue in cheek, English tea(very twee, very me). A very good album then, definitely one of McCartney's top six or seven.

Very nice album with haunting harmonies. Godrich's really gave the twist to McCartney's music and revealed his other side.
How Kind of You and Jenny Wren are superb songs!

The album is really worth listening attentively, even though the last 3/4 tracks are out of context.

The intro to "Anyway" sounds a lot like "People Get Ready" by Curtis Mayfield

A good album from McCartney one of the best he has recorded as a solo artist. Best tracks are Anyway, At the Mercy, Fine Line and Riding To Vanity Fair.

A wonderful piece of work, mostly performed solo (a multi-instrumentalist at the top of his game), with Nigel Godrich overseeing the proceedings.

It is amazing how well his voice has held up over the years...haven't heard this whole album, just clips.
