Chaos And Creation In The Backyard
Released: Sep 2005
Label: Hear Music
Should popular music's most successful composer reinvent himself? Producer Nigel Godrich squeezed the ex-Beatle but ultimately -- and triumphantly -- settled for building soundscapes to showcase McCartney's proven talents. Little Richard's influence on a Liverpudlian teenager feels fresh, while songs such as "Riding to Vanity Fair" reveal a surprising emotional range.
