Not dreadful, but not great. A journeyman pop song.

Another link to the same thing
http://www.tindeck.com/audio/files/13lkg-McCartney%20Fine%20Linemp3.mp3


I've listened to this a few times in the last hour. The lyrics are ordinary, but not as bad as he's written in the recent past. The tune is one of those "I've heard that before" types.

Summing up: typical of better Macca of the last few years, but that is really damning him with faint praise.

Has Paulie really nothing more to say than this? If so, then  my advice is: forget it, mate: your race is over.

Whatever's more important to you
You've got to choose what you want to do
Whatever's more important to me  
It's the philosophy that you've got to see.
(Apologies for any errors: it's hard to tell what he's singing sometimes, but the gist is there.)

This new single sounds good to me. Not great, but very good. It's got that bouncy "Flaming Pie" feel, and the coda is rather nice. I'm not expecting another Band On The Run, or even another Tug Of War, but if this song is any indication, maybe we'll get something that combines the best elements of Flaming Pie and Driving Rain into something that's an improvement over both of those.

Au contraire, Officer Plod. It's quite OK to dl stuff for a preview listen. But if you like it, you buy it. That's always been my position - if you care to go back to the thread where I gave a link to dl Choose Love, you'll see clearly that's my stance.

Sadly, you're wrong again, Plod!

Here's what I said when I posted the Choose Love download:

If you go here [link], you can download, in reasonable quality, the tracks from Ringo's new album. Of course, come June, if you like the album, you'll buy a copy!

So I'm not a thief, and not a hypocrite. So Policeman Plod, the evidence is in, and you are wrong ... again!

Yes - enable people to make a judgement, for themselves. Thanks for supporting my point of view, at last, young Plod.

I must say I expected something a bit more spectaculair. But the song is alright.

I'll bet the demo of this sounded like something that would have fit in perfect on "Red Rose Speedway".

I'm listening to it, I find it really good!! Well, I'm not sure it will be my fave track from the new album... But good song! The one that you listen to for a few times and it's in your mind already.

Hmmmmmm On very first listen.

Not offensive...bit lyrically and melodically weak...instrumental sections were nice...some nice Beatle chord changes...I still wished he'd go more Beatle with it. So frustrating!!!(Vocals, strings etc.) I look forward to hearing what else he can conjure up.

I still havent heard it. I cant download it at work and its hopeless at home with the old dial up buffering for a day and a half. I guess i'll have to wait and see. The general consensus so far is that its an average Paul tune in which I usually enjoy, so i'm kind of anxious.

TMOGF's view on 'A Fine Line'.

After having a few days for it to sink in I have come to a verdict on the new song: It's really quite good. Very Macca, especially the guitar/piano at the opening. Does sound vaguely similar to the piano break in Flaming Pie but thats no problem. Can't wait to hear a better quality version to truely appreciate it.

C'mon brother, all is forgiven, we all cried when you were taken away....

Two songs on the album are dedicated to Linda and one to John (reportedly). Love her or hate her, Heather has got to be struggling with Linda's 'presence'.

The song reminds me of Squeeze without the witty lines.   I can also hear the Red Rose Speedway comparison.  

Why don't Paul collaborate with somebody on lyrics?!  (And not Elvis Costello).  

This is catchy but just kind of sits there grinning at you.  What am I supposed to take away from this?

Certainly not the philosophy of indeterminacy.
