p180g Double Vinyl, unique tri-gatefold packaging with 16 tracks (14 songs + 2 instrumentals). p pPaul McCartney invites you on a musical journey to Egypt Station, estimated time of arrival September 7, 2018 by way of Capitol Records. Sharing a title with one of Paul’s own paintings, Egypt Station is the first full album of all-new McCartney music since 2013’s international chart-topping NEW. Preceded by two of its tracks just released as double A-sides--plaintive ballad “I Don’t Know” and raucous stomper “Come On To Me”—Egypt Station was recorded between Los Angeles, London and Sussex, and produced (with the exception of one Ryan Tedder track) by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beck, Foo Fighters).p pOf the forthcoming album’s enigmatic title, Paul says, “I liked the words ‘Egypt Station.’ It reminded me of the ‘album’ albums we used to make.., Egypt Station starts off at the station on the first song and then each song is like a different station. So it gave us some idea to base all the songs around that. I think of it as a dream location that the music emanates from.”p pTrue to the inspiration behind its title, Egypt Station’s 14 songs combine to convey a unique travelogue vibe. Between the opening and closing instrumentals “Station I” and “Station II,” each song finds Paul capturing a place or moment before transporting the listener seamlessly to the next destination. Stops along the way include an acoustic meditation on present day contentedness (“Happy With You”), a timeless anthem that would fit on virtually any album of any McCartney era (“People Want Peace”), and an epic multi-movement closer clocking in at seven minutes with a song suite structure harkening back to the days of Paul’s previous combos (“Despite Repeated Warnings”). The result is a kaleidoscopic journey through myriad musical locales and eras, yet firmly rooted in the here and now--with Paul’s singular unmistakable melodic and lyrical sensibility serving as a guide.p

What impressed me most of all is the variety of music on this disc. Paul covers different modes and genres quite naturally over the tracks, mixing things up. There's no "hit" Top-10 here, but I doubt that was his intention. There are some remarkable tracks though (I think my favorite is the fourth track), but listening through the CD a half dozen times already, I've been impressed by the songs, the quality of the lyrics, and the overall musical experience Egypt Station delivers.
Without a doubt, the best Paul McCartney album in a long time, and one I suspect I'll be playing for quite a while. Definitely a must-have for Paul fans, but also a must-have for those who appreciate top-quality song writing and composition. Very nicely done!
there are 2 pockets to hold CDs in the cover but there is only I CD. It has the right number of tracks listed. Is there supposed to be another one?
Of course...having recent happy memories of seeing him in an amazing concert playing some of this music helps but it's still a really good cd..
