I've always held your opinion in high regard Todd but I've got to admit I like McCartney II -
You know Mr.M, I think I need to soften my stance a tad and use phases like 'I don't like it' or 'its just not my cup of tea' rather then outright stating its bad. I just think I don't care for that 80's techno, heavy production stuff and that's why 'Macca 2' and 'Pipes' fails with me. 'Press' has some of it too, but not to such a degree in my opinion. Heck, the Pretty Things did an 80's album called 'Cross Talk' and while its expertly done and gets decent reviews, I don't care for it.
