Product Description


Cet album paru en 1993 marque le retour de Paul McCartney à un son plus dur, plus rock'n'roll. Plus militant encore que certains de ses disques pourtant engagés, il comprend notamment "Looking For Changes", une déclaration virulente en faveur des droits des animaux écrite sous l'influence de sa femme Linda. Sur "Hope Of Deliverance", "C'mon People" ou "Peace In The Neighborhood", on retrouve la fameuse conscience sociale de Paul, assez active et servie par un jeu solide. --Florent Mazzoleni

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT REMASTERED!! Jan. 30 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Paul has been gradually re-releasing his catalogue in carefully thought out digipack versions with bonus tracks and bonus discs. But this re-release suddenly came out of left field, barely announced. For the record, it doesn't follow the remasters in upgraded sound or physical appearance at all. All they did was reissue the original album in jewel case form, exactly as it came out 20 years ago. If you already own the original Capitol version from 1993, this is the exact same thing, only with the new label "Hear Music" printed in the place of "Capitol" on the back. Very misleading. Don't bother buying this again if you already own it.

4.0 out of 5 stars (...) June 24 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
(...) It's a standard McCartney pop album that deserves alot more credit than it gets. Critics really do expect the impossible from McCartney. This CD really has some very good pop rock on it. I've been a Macca fan for along time and you've got to learn to expect the unexpected from him, his musical styles change majorly from album to album. But keep in mind this is no Band on the Run, there are some not so good songs on here....
OFF THE GROUND- A good strong pop rock mid tempo opener. It's got a good catchy melody and a real airy "off the ground" feel to it. It also has a mean electric guitar.
LOOKING FOR CHANGES- A song McCartney sings about animal rights. Another rocker with hot electric guitar, a good solid riff that'll hook you to it... if you can get used to the lyrics.
HOPE OF DELIVERENCE- This was a huge commercial hit, which i personally do not care for. It has a cool steel guitar solo though its largely an acoustic song.
MISTRESS AND MAID- Here we come to the first really bad song. He co wrote it with MacManus.... just go ahead and skip over it.
I OWE IT ALL TO YOU- A very nice ballad type song. It's definantly worth a listen.
BIKER LIKE AN ICON- LOL! What were you smokin when you wrote this one McCartney? A good funny novelty piece with a catchy bass line but the lyrics are just........INSANE!!!
PEACE IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD- A good groovy boogy song. Definantly happy and upbeat. Don't skip over it.
GOLDEN EARTH GIRL-One of Paul's most over looked ballads. Its got a very nice piano accomp. though the lyrics are k i nd o f w e i r d.?(Eggshell fish in a sunbeam)!@?
THE LOVERS THAT NEVER WERE- Sounds like this one could be in a movie, listen to it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Two okay songs, rest is disappointing filler Nov. 20 2003
Format:Audio CD
'Hope Of Deliverance' and 'Off The Ground' are two okay numbers but the rest are barely memorable or just plain awful, like the unintenionally hilarious 'Biker Like An Icon'. This song is typical of the sort of lazy, uninspired stuff that has helped to steadily erode McCartney's reputation as a songwriter over the past few decades-lyrics that might have looked okay on paper, but they just sound ridiculous and childish when sung out loud.
The problem with this album, like so many others he's released, is that the majority of songs shouldn't ever see the light of day from an artist of his calibre. If most of the songs on this album were presented to a record company as a demo by a new artist, it'd more than likely be rejected.
There are a couple of tracks here co-written with Elvis Costello, but neither are of the standard of their collaborations featured on the far superior 'Flowers In The Dirt'. These may be from those sessions and it would make sense why they weren't featured on that album...they're just not very good.
Skip this and try 'Tug Of War', 'Flowers In The Dirt' and 'Flaming Pie' instead. They are the best solo albums he's made in the past few decades and contain some great tracks.
