The more I listen, the more I wonder if having 4 producers working with him was good or bad. Seems each had him go with his falsetto or muted vocals which, IMO, piles up too frequently on an album. If there was one producer would there have been as much?
Maybe it was Paul's doing, with his aging voice, maybe he is trying to do what he can but I would think in a studio environment you could belt them out at your own pace.
I may be way off, but the multitude of falsetto or muted vocals stands out to me as a downer.
Save Us- like a lot
Alligator- one of my favs on the album
On my way to work - very close to being my favorite, just short, missing some more energy in a middle section or something, missing a change of tempo ever so briefly
Queenside Eye- like this a lot
Early Days - I go back and forth on this, like it, like it a lot and back to just liking it
New - like it more than originally
Appreciate - wouldn't have minded not having it on the album
Everybody out there- like this , better live
Hosanna - bah, take it off
I can bet- probably #1 at the moment
Looking at her- take it off
Road- like it
Turned out- like it
Get me out of here- simple fun, like it
