Genius and McCartney 2 should never be mumbled together in any kind of breath.
I think we should agree to disagree.
I view MCII in the same way I view Radiohead's Kid A. It's an experimental album from a pop/rock group, that sounds radically different, but is incredibly experimental.
Now, not every Radiohead fan will like Kid A. Some will prefer The Bends, or OK Computer. Not every Macca fan will like MCII.
I prefer Kid A, and McCartney II.
The Man is awful.
Compared to some of what Paul has written by himself, The Man is a masterpiece. And I say that as a huge Paul solo fan.
