Isn't it nice to see something written about Mr McCartney that isn't about his private life? This is his latest offering, Memory Almost Full. The first album on the new Starbucks record label. I wasn't envisaging to find anything new about him from this and so I wasn't suprised to find that this is the same material that hes been releasing for all of his career.
Sure, I don't know what I really, a rap album or a dance album probably. This is as far from that as possible. I want to like this album but find myself thinking the same things as when I looked at the lead off single Dance Tonight. Its not all bad though, Mister Bellamy mixes old with the new with McCartneys usual vocal delivery and a tinkery piano rhythm on top of a modern sounding drum beat. House Of Wax moves along like an ghostly presence reminiscent of the Manic Street Preachers track Intense Humming Of Evil. With Eerie vocals from McCartney and uncessesary guitar solos its a step above the rest of the material on this record. Most of this however you can find done far better earlier in his career. A pleasant trip if one that you've taken many times before.
