Product Description

Just when everyone has given up on Sir Paul's ever releasing another decent pop song, he turns around and surprises us all with his best album since the mid-1970s. After working on the Beatles' Anthology series, he was reminded of the standards of music he'd long forgotten and was pressed to meet them. Even Jeff Lynne, who helped on much of it, kept himself very much in the background, and let Mac do the right thing, playing and singing most everything, with some help from Ringo and guitarist Steve Miller, whose presence was a mixed blessing. Even if the songs don't scale the heights of the Glory Years, they remind us of the true talent that was McCartney once again. A pleasure to the ears. --Chris Nickson

5.0 out of 5 stars The Song He Was Singing May 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
Trite or not, cruel or not, James Paul McCartney creates better under stress and in emotional pain. Only months after this CD was released, the new Knight Bachelor lost the only woman he believed he'd ever love. Surely, even though the press was being assured Linda was "fine", she wasn't, the fact of her illness was informing his work.
Just as "McCartney" was created during the hazy period he was trying to define himself after the Beatles, and "McCartney II" surfaced after his jail experience in Japan, "Flaming Pie" shows a more vulnerable, less cheeky McCartney, and with good results.
Unlike a lot of Wings albums, or "Tug of War" or "Pipes of Peace", this album doesn't just yield one or two songs for the "It's got a beat AND you can dance to it!" crowd. Instead, the lyrics reign here, introspective, haunting at times.
Not that some of the songs don't rock! How could they not with Jeff Lynne and Steve Miller helping out? Even fellow Two-tle, Ringo, helps out with Beautiful Night. But since it's his voice in addition to drums, that's an element of sentiment, not one of quality.
The unusual production of some cuts, like the Victrola in "Souvenir", reminds one of the days the Beatles were experimenting with all kinds of sound at Abbey Road.
My one disappointment about this CD happened a couple years after its release. "Little Willow" shows up here, dedicated to a friend who'd died of cancer and her children. Only a bit of detective work would reveal that this friend was Maureen Starkey, Ringo's ex-wife, and the kids Lee and Zak. But after Princess Diana was killed and a memorial album put together for her, the song Paul "donated" in her memory was....

4.0 out of 5 stars A Delicious Pie From Paul May 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
Fresh off his work on the Beatles' "Anthology" albums, which reminded him of the creative standards set by his legendary old band, Paul McCartney recorded 1997's "Flaming Pie," filled with new inspiration & vigor, and came up with one of his best solo albums in years (although Paul would do even better with 2001's magnificent "Driving Rain"). It's just tremendous fun hearing Paul get back in touch with his creative genius once more, since his most recent albums up to this point, though not without their share of good songs, had been a little TOO soft & fluffy overall. Not so with "Flaming Pie". Standouts include the excellent pop-rock of "The World Tonight," "Young Boy," the title song, "Used To Be Bad," and "Beautiful Tonight," as well as lovely songs like "Somedays," "Calico Skies," "Little Willow," "Great Day," and the gorgeous beauty that is "Heaven On A Sunday," arguably the best song on the album, and featuring an amazing electric guitar solo by Paul's son, James, who was just 19 at the time. Paul's work throughout is quite wonderful, and there's excellent contributions thoughout by Steve Miller, Jeff Lynne, Paul's Beatle pal Ringo Starr, and the lovely Linda McCartney. While "Flaming Pie" doesn't represent Paul McCartney's *greatest* solo material---hence my 4-star rating instead of a perfect 5---this is undeniably a wonderful album, and a definitive step in the right direction for Sir Paul. "Flaming Pie" is simply delicious.

4.0 out of 5 stars A hot Flaming Pie! April 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
Paul McCartney's fellow ex-Beatle Ringo Starr participated in this recording as did Steve Miller,who sang a duet with McCartney on USED TO BE BAD. If George Harrison,who was alive at the time of this recording,participated it could have been a Beatles album,if he and Ringo worked on all 14 tracks. Yoko Ono Lennon would not have let that be(be a Beatles album),though. She believes that without her late husband John,there is no Beatles. This album's recording first began in 1992,so the '92 recordings were probably OFF THE GROUND outtakes. Jeff Lynne,former frontman for the Electric Light Orchestra,produced or co-produced the album. Lynne produced music recorded by Harrison also(both were members of the all-star Traveling Wilburys). Hits include THE WORLD TONIGHT and YOUNG BOY,the latter being the opening theme for the Billy Crystal-Robin Williams movie "Father's Day". Paul's son James Jr.(Paul's birth name was James Paul) gave moral support to his dad on the album. Junior was labeled a "young turk" in the liner notes on the album. One of Paul's best post-Beatles albums!

Ahhh... Flaiming Pie! Thank you Paul McCartney for this album. Before I start this review I must state that this is my personal favorite of all paul albums.. With that said, I will attempt to give a fair review of it to the average listener..
Released in 1997, Paul hit #2 in his first week on the charts with Flaiming Pie. A very 'bare' album, it features mainly Paul himself on all the instruments (Featuring Jeff Lynne, Ringo Starr, James McCartney, and Steve Miller assisting). With simple arraingements and great lyrics throughout, Paul brought himself back to similar situations of recording(ala The White Album).
With McCartney playing as the core rhythm section on all but two tracks (Ringo on drums for Beautiful Night and Really Love You) it brings an intimacy and an unpolished feel that has bogged down many of pauls output since the mid seventies. By playing all natural instruments (including NO synths), it makes this album a pleasant experience throughout.
But in comes my only complaint to the album... Jeff Lynne in his producing loves to make sounds as bare and loose as possible. This works great for the guitar, bass, and keyboard tracks, but his drum recordings always come through with a very 'boxy' sound. When he records his vocals, he barely, if ever, uses effects to make the vocals shine a little more to create an ambient effect. These are the only reasons I am rating this album at a '4', and not '5'...
With that out of the way, lets focus on the material itself. The melodies in the tracks are as strong as ever. Classic McCartney really. But the stand out (which is what suprised most McCartney Nay-sayers) is the lyrics. For the first time in quite a while, Pauls lyrics are very stripped down and bare with simple, clear messages in them.
