You know, I have to agree with Anasophia Robb. McCartney's latest album sucks serious crap.. I cringed when I heard "Appreciate" and "Hosanna". Actually, all the songs on his NEW album suck. He has the opportunity to write deeper songs about his divorce, Linda dying from cancer, even his turbulence with Yoko. Does he? No!! He's boppy, silly McCartney who wants to make money. After 9-11 he had the audacity to record a shit song called "freedom". The song sucked and it was incredibly opportunistic at the time. But he got a pass again cuz he was a Beatle. By the way, Anita Ward is great, and disco did have its greatness, at the time. So did the Beatles. But Paul's solo work is weak and always has been.
You obviously are not a McCartney fan, & that's ok, but why do you feel the need to tell us. His New album may not be one his best, but it's certainly better than anything he's done in the past ten years. What you call weak others would call great, so it really is just a matter of opinion. Paul McCartney happens to be the most successful songwriter in the history of recorded music. So your opinion really doesn't matter, now does it. He's obviously doing something right, regardless of what you think of him.

I was curious so I checked out a sampler of McCartney's "New" album on You Tube.

I am sorry but I did not like it at all, especially the modernized production on all the tracks. It sounds like a standard computerized instruments effort. The music drowns the vocals in all the songs and nothing really stands out. But a lot of artists are doing CD's this way. I would go as far as saying that this is probably the worst album I've ever heard from an ex Beatle. I kind of wish that he recorded it live in the studio with musicians where all the instruments are separated correctly instead of blasting through at all one volume. A lousy recording that ruined a few promisiing songs, like "Save Us" and "Early Days"

I am thankful that I did not waste my money buying it. I am very picky about sound quality and over production.

The reason why it sounds different is because Paul used some younger more modern producers. I like the two songs you mentioned "Save Us" & "Early Days" two others you should check out are the title track "New" & another called " Everybody Out There" you may like those two, they're upbeat with catchy chorus's. I know the production seems a little different from what we're used to from Paul. But I think it gives his music a fresh sound, without taking away who he is.

Some songs sound like Paul but I still do not like the modernized production on the newer rock CD's I've hearing from different established acts such as Black Sabbath, Rush and even the new one from Boston. It just doesn't sound right. I listened to Paul's new album with an open mind but I do not like the over produced music. It definitely ruined the promise of the recording. I think it is obvious that McCartney was trying for a current pop direction. However, it does not do anything for me. The older Beatle and Wings still sound much better. That is a big problem with the more modernized CD's today. They aren't recording it totally in the studio anymore and it sounds empty and false. All the warmth of the performance is lost. Perhaps, I am being a bit picky but I woundn't listen to something like that. It is too manufactured, too cheap. I'm surprised Paul would agree to do something this bad. Glee and American Idol might be fresh but is it garbage. I'm too old school. I want real studio production for rock recordings. The new Van Halen CD with David Lee Roth suffered the same kinds of problems. It was computerized and enhanced. Did not work.

Think about all those singers Paul McCartney, Geddy Lee, Ozzy, David Lee Roth. Their all getting up there in age. So, perhaps they thought they needed the over production, to cover up their vocal shortcomings.

Yes, I think you are probably right. I bought Robert Plant's "Raising Sand" as a used CD a couple years ago and couldn't make it through the whole disc. It was horrible. The production sucked. And this won him a grammy? It is fortunate that we can listen to the whole albums or at least samplers of the albums on You Tube nowadays before we decide to purchace the CD. I liked Robert's "Band Of Joy" release a little bit better but I rarely play it today. I stick to what I know is going to be good and that I know I'll enjoy over and over again. That counts me out on buying brand new releases because I hate the modernized production. Just because they think it sounds cystal clear, doesn't make it a great recording. I have audience recordings that are more exciting. It the heart and soul of the artists performance that was captured in time. Fake, computerized junk does nothing for me. I like the power of pure inspiration of musicians playing together worts and all. I bought Paul McCartney's and Wings double disc, "Wingspan" greatest hits collection when it first came out. The sound was improved but they did not over do the remastering. I like it because it has all the better cuts off of his most popular solo period. I was just curious about the new release but I am glad that I saved my money. I am glad that you like it though.:)

Vinyl siding is crappy siding. I would sure love to live in a Deininger house. I love the match light stove. I even love the double doors in the living quarters. I wish more people would build houses like the Deiningers. The brown trim, The ASBESTOS Siding and the Metal Roof.
That makes a beautiful home. I wish there were more Elmers and Orillas Out there.
That would be AWESOME. Especially those who hate the STINKY BEATLES.
PEE YU. Thats how I rate Paul McCartney. And VINYL SIDING. Even though Orilla and Elmer never had any children of their own, You are right Annonomys, The best gift the couple had was each other.
I wish more people would think like that. Its sad how couples that have more than 1 child decide to divorce. That is terrible. I hope Paul McCartney will DIE SOON.
Yay Yay yay. DIE PAUL McCartney.
Hey Annasophia Robb,
Now that you saw a young Orilla Deininger. Here's a young picture of Elmer when he and Orilla got married.
http://27.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lo6y4pm5141...
He was a very cool person. They never had a Doorbell on their house. The only way they knew if somebody was there was if you KNOCKED On their doors front and back.
That would be nice if more people built their homes like the Deiningers. Their house was built in 1914. It is almost 100 years old. The new owners never even put a doorbell on it. The ASBESTOS Siding and Metal Roof along with the brown trim are still there. Even though their farm was Established in 1863. The original house that stood there burned in 1913.
The year Elmer was born. So in 1914 The house the Deiningers lived in was built.
Rest in Peace Mr. and Mrs. Deininger.

Elmer looks like Prince Charming.
I hope that I can Marry a guy that looks like Elmer Deininger. I hope that he hates Paul McCartney and The Beatles. WINGS Is a LAME band as well. Elmer Deininger was Right when he said the Beatles are BLOODSUCKERS. WINGS Is STUPID. I wish somebody would PEE on PAUL McCartney. Sir Paul Simon is better than Mr. Bloodsucker.

Once again, you make yourself look like an immature idiot. And Paul Simon is not Sir Paul Simon. The title of Sir is reserved for people from Britain, who have been knighted by the queen.

Paul Rodger's new song is amazing. Apparently, he never lost his vocal abilities because he sounds better than ever. Billboard had a pre view sound bite for his new CD, which will be out 2-4-14. The internet article happens to be on the Bad Company forum and that is where I listened to the new song. Paul does covers of his favorite Memphis soul classics on his newest CD but they just played one seven minute track from the new release. I was floored. Very impressive.

Paul Rodgers is about as old as Robert Plant and Ozzy.

I think I'll check that out, I have always been a fan of Paul Rodgers. I like the music he did with Free & Bad Company, as well as the music he did with Jimmy Page in The Firm. I thought he was the lead singer of Queen now, I didn't know he was doing solo music. Is he still in Queen or Bad Company? I knew that he & Bad Company got back together, a few years ago, but I didn't hear anything else about him since.

I've always liked most of Paul Rodger's work but I never liked Queen. Obviously, that short lived project is done. I did not realize that Paul Rodgers was back with Bad Company. I have his first solo album that was released in the early eighties. The Firm only made two albums and then Paul Rodgers made another album with Kenny Jones of the who called "The Law" He made another solo abum with many musical guests as a tribute to Muddy Waters that was good but the track I just heard on his new one is very strong. It surprises me. I am in the right mood nowadays to check out classic covers of Memphis soul from Stax and Volt records from the sixties. Paul Rogers does "Walk On By" perfectly. I hope the whole CD is just as strong, I've been listening to the sound clip of the song and it is great. I've haven't liked a new release in quite some time. Paul Rodgers can definitely still sing.

FYI Paul McCartney & the Beatles, recorded one of the first metal songs ever. They did it in 1968 & it's called Helter Skelter. If you asked any rock or metal bands, most of them would name the Beatles as a major influence. Paul McCartney is the most successful songwriter, in the history of recorded music. That doesn't sound amateurish to me. He is also an accomplished musician, of many instruments, & he has even composed classical music.

Unfortunately, this is incorrect.

"Helter Skelter" is certainly not metal and it wasn't one of the first metal songs ever. I think you are not giving the proper credit to the musicians that actually were doing heavy guitar based music way before The Beatles. It was born from surf rock instrumental groups of the fifties and early sixties like Link Wray's "Rumble" or Dick Dale And The Deltones. Like I told you before, that was what The Beach Boys were listening to as they started as a band. The 1966 "Smile" studio outtake, "Ms O'Leary's Cow" is like hearing thrash metal in 1966. Simply listen to it. You just want to give The Beatles credit they do not deserve because it has been claimed by Beatle fans and written down as fact. That lie has been proven false. In the fifties and early sixties, heavy guitar music simply was not recorded with vocals but it had metal like riffs.

BTW, Blue Cheer was a very early Heavy Metal band that covered Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues" in 1968. It was Eddie Cochran that was doing some amazing guitar based rock instrumentals in the studio in the late fifties. Unfortunately, his record company wanted to market him as a teen idol but there is still plenty of evidence of Eddie's superior guitar skills for the era. He wrote some of the greatest rock n roll classics ever put down on tape.

When will the sixties dead head bias ever end?

Eddie Cochran was better than The Beatles but died in a car wreck in 1960 while on tour in the UK with Gene Vincent, another early rock n roll legend that gets neglected.

I'm not sure why you would say Helter Skelter wasn't metal. If it isn't metal, it's at least hard rock. Other's may have done what you would call metal in the early sixties. But, how could it be metal without distortion? Heavy metal really didn't exist, until the late sixties, with bands like Black Sabbath & Iron Butterfly. And what a coincidence, that happens to be around the same time the Beatles recorded Helter Skelter. By no means am I saying the Beatles invented metal, but they were one of the first to record a metal song.

It wasn't called metal because the term did not exist yet.

I was pointing out that forms of metal certainly was being played way before The Beatles. And yes, it did have distortion. Anyway, Jimi Hendrix's first album came out before The Beatles White Album. Where do you think Hendrix picked up some of his ideas from?

Other guitar players before him.

Listen to The Beach Boys lost outtake, "Ms O'Leary's Cow" from 1966.
