Most people are Beatle fans, and I am too, but I'm even more of a Paul McCartney fan, in fact McCartney is the reason I'm a Beatle fan.
Nimrod, you would be totally wrong, if you think I like everything McCartney does! One major thing I don't like is his concert setlist, it's been too Beatle heavy since the early 90s!!
I just posted earlier that I think McCartney II (except for maybe three songs) most of Pipes Of Peace and that Fireman stuff is the absolute worse music McCartney has ever made! There are plenty of songs on his albums that I can't stand, for instance...
From A Lover To A Friend
You Gave Me The Answer
These are just a few that I absolutely can't stand! I'm also not into most of the classical stuff, so no I don't like every single thing McCartney does!
I am into this new album though, I can already picture myself relaxing in the afternoon and listening to this vey jazzy, silky smooth music from McCartney.
The music scene has changed, but Paul McCartney hasn't he still writes absolutely fantastic music and he is still producing great albums. Along with this new one, I'm also looking forward to his new rock album that is scheduled to come out later this year!
I don't have a problem with McCartneys versatility, I don't exspect the man to just rock and nothing else, anyone that has followed McCartney entire career knows that the man can and will switch it up at the drop of a hat.
Some I like, and some I don't like, that's the thrill of McCartneys music, there's something in his material for everyone!!
To say that McCartney can't sing is totally ridiculous, the man stands on stage night after night for three hours and does nothing but sing his heart out, and he's covering rockers, ballads, piano tunes, etc, and the reviews are absolutely thru the roof, and the comments about his live singing voice, not his recorded voice that can be autotuned or whatever, but his live singing voice are also thru the roof positive!
Here's a comment from someone who just saw McCartney, I know it's just one person but I've read many similar comments from people who very recently attended McCartneys shows. I got this from Youtube.
(Paul has not lost his voice! I saw him live three weeks ago, and he sang really, really well - both older and newer songs. Of course his voice has changed a bit with age, but his more mature voice gives an interesting edge to both older songs like "Long and winding road" and like on this new song. It's really emotional in a genuine way that no younger singers comes near...
Don't get me wrong, yes the mans voice has changed, but to say that he can't sing is just ridiculous!!
