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

3.0 out of 5 stars Paul's flaming pie July 15 2013
Format:Audio CD|Amazon Verified Purchase
This is a good album from Paul McCartney, but not great. The flaming pie title comes from the story that John Lennon had a dream when the Beatles were looking for a band name that he saw a little man standing on a flaming pie saying "You shall be Beatles with an 'A'." The story is untrue. Stu Sutcliffe named the band the Beatles.

5.0 out of 5 stars His Masterpiece Dec 2 2012
Format:Audio CD
His best long play since the 1970's? You must be kidding. Clean the wax out of your ears. Much of his 1970's output (Wild Life, Speed Of Sound, London Town, Back To The Egg) was schlock. This is his best LP/CD to date and by far. And he's done three more superb CD's since. 1997 to 2007 is Paul's finest hour as a solo artist!

By Mike London TOP 100 REVIEWER

The beginning of McCartney's later day career renaissance

Bob Dylan in a recent interview has said there's really only one person in music today that to him is absolutely stunning. That person, naturally, is Paul McCartney. ""I'm in awe of McCartney. He's about the only one that I am in awe of. He can do it all. And he's never let up... He's just so damn effortless." (Taken from a Rolling Stone interview from summer 2007).

High praise from someone so iconic as Bob Dylan. The last ten years for both McCartney and Dylan have proven them to be the most interesting artists of their generation currently recording. Over the last decade, both Dylan and McCartney have had a massive resurgence in their careers. While each are following their own idiosyncractic paths, both have proven themselves to have remarkable fertile songwriting during this stage in their careers.

And here's the trick. Both are the best at what they do. Sure, you can't imagine Paul McCartney being able to pull of the effortless aural history lessons in songs Dylan has been doing, each steeped in the American tradition and that "Old, Weird, America" of the Anthology of American Folk Music. Come on, could Paul really write "Nettie Moore", "Ain't Talkin'", "Mississippi", "Things Have Changed," "Tell Ol' Bill", or the masterpiece "Cross the Green Mountain"? But then again, you can't see Dylan writing the effortless melodic pop masterpieces McCartney written in FLAMING PIE, DRIVING RAIN, CHAOS & CREATION IN THE BACKYARD (one of my favorite albums of the 2000s), or MEMORY ALMOST FULL.

When FLAMING PIE hit the stores in 1997, four years separate it from McCartney's previous studio offering, OFF THE GROUND. A lot happened during those four years, namely, The Beatles multi-media project THE ANTHOLOGY.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not well-known treasure May 19 2011
By Doily
Format:Audio CD|Amazon Verified Purchase
Where have I been?! Discovered this album in a personal interview with Paul McCartney in a book called "Popular Singing" by Donna Soto-Morettini. Inspired me to youtube for the album. Thoroughly enjoyed hearing all the songs, so much so, I had to have the album. "Beautiful Night", "Calico Skies", "Somedays", "Little Willow", great songs! The others are all good. Can't believe I never heard them before. You're in for a real treat if you haven't heard it before, and if you have, you'll enjoy hearing it over and over on the album. Great song writing (music and lyrics). Paul's talent with rhythms excites one's brain neurons!

I give this LP five stars for the song Beautiful night.

I know how long and versatile has been (and still is, thank God!) his musical production... some times even irregular... BUT THIS IS ONE OF HIS BEST!
It came quite as a surprise, intimist, very well enregistered/recorded/produced, and with such gems as "Somedays","Calico Skies","The Song We Were Singing" and the catchy "Young Boy"...
You have Ringo as a bonus in some tracks.
And overall one of the best produced albums of his solo career.
GET IT BELIVE ME! YOU WONT BE DISAPOINTED...

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....
