Product Description

On Chaos And Creation In The Back Yard, Sir Paul tries something he did on his first self-titled solo album in 1970, he's playing every instrument himself, including the guitar, bass, drums, flugelhorn and harmonium. And to make sure those Beatles days find their way into his new record, McCartney recorded 'Jenny Wren' which he says is the daughter of Blackbird. Co-produced with Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Beck), Chaos And Creation is McCartney's first record since 2001's Driving Rain. EMI. 2005.

Paul McCartney, never at a loss for creating extraordiary songs does not disappoint on this collection either. The music is pure McCartney; the lyrics nonpareil. Paul McCartney is a song writer in a class by himself. He has definitely raised the musical bar once again.
"Fine Line" is of extraordinary caliber and "Jenny Wren" is noted for its beautiful acoustic and Paul's singing. "English Tea" brings to mind the Beatle years; in listening to this, one can imagine Paul in 1967 singing this and it would be as wonderful and outstanding as it is as a recent work. Indeed, this one does hearken back to Beatle days; one can indeed hear the unique influence as only Paul McCartney can provide.
"Too Much Rain" and "Riding to Vanity Fair" are excellent songs that work as "counterpoint" or contradictory pieces. The songs both show Paul at his cutting edge best.
This is the kind of thing I hope we'll hear more of over time. Paul McCartney has indeed shown a musical renaissance as well as his musical roots which are with the Beatles. He deftly combines these and the result is nothing short of brilliant. In effect, one can liken this to Gestalt - the sum being greater than the whole of its parts. In this case, the parts being Paul's musical background with the Beatles and later with Wings and his more current solo works. This is indeed a beautifully done Gestalt listening experience.
No Beatle fan and/or Paul McCartney fan should be without this one. The song writing is just spectactular. You also get a DVD with a very nice doumentary about the creation of this CD. You also get some animated footage as well. Be sure to get this one and get ready for some high caliber music!

Listening to Memory Almost Full encouraged me to buy this album.

Who can you compare McCartney to except himself, a tough comparison for anyone...except McCartney.

The more you listen to this, the more you are drawn into his magical world of gardens that stretch out for miles and English Tea, and deep and inspiring love. If you are like me, you will notice why he is arguably the greatest melodic composer of modern times, perhaps ever.

English Tea is the type of song only McCartney would write. You gave me the answer meets Country Garden with piano and musical overtones reminiscent of In My Life.

Jenny Wren is one of his mysterious story songs. Was she perhaps a famous singer?

A certain softness is a shimmering gem, an atmospheric smouldering acoustic latin jazzy number. I could just imagine myself looking into a woman's eyes, feeling quite fascinated, more than I ever thought I could, in a room with hushed lighting, an intimate setting full of promise. Maybe its just me. He uses really captivating infills with piano, and classical guitar. Press repeat. Edly.

I am not a soppy romantic but when he sings Follow Me-You hold up a sign which reads, Follow Me - which is one of the best love songs he has written, perfect for a wedding, I just wanted to cry. The triumph of experience over hope. Its from such a deep and moving emotional place, and quite simply, one of his best. Press repeat.

I have been playing this album consistently since I bought it. This is one of his best solo works. I can pick out something new each time. The dramatic way that Follow Me builds to climax, extending the chorus, and adding harmony, and layering. The trademark harmonies.
