Just had my first listen, unfortunately it was in the car while driving, not the best system.
Initial thoughts are mixed, I think the writing is good, not any throw always in my opinion.
I do feel the entire album feels over produced, too much noise, too many layers. Very few "clean" moments, would have liked more.
Whether it was intentional because of the "modern" producers chosen or intentional to mask Paul's more fragile voice I don't know. The vocals were more in the background than I can ever remember for a Paul album.
Despite my negatives above, the writing is strong and I do like it but wonder if the same songs could have translated slightly differently and been better?
