Is it just me, or is this the most disgraceful and laughable album title to come along in recent memory? Has he outdone himself this time, or what? The cover art and contents appear to be equally cringeworthy.
In response to Audiofeil, couldn't agree more that Dylan and McCartney are true heavyweights, but I would also include William Robinson, Joni Mitchell, Brain Wilson, Paul Simon and Stevland Hardaway Morris.
Audiofeil - I have the temerity to suggest that as a solo writer/singer, Van Morrison is #2 after Dylan. Paul's solo work is VERY uneven; it doesn't have the consistent weight of Van Morrison's. IMHO - of course.
Neil Young's latest- one of my recent favorites, Paul's not at all. Both wonderful guys - can't always hit a home run. Aging rockers doing an album of standards has become a cliche. Neil's is all originals by the way.
