    I used to think Chaos was boring, but that opinion certainly changed. I tend to need some albums to marinate before I can fully taste their flavors. And, I very rarely come to dislike something I formerly liked years ago. I only learn to appreciate and like more and more, and stuff like Beatles music actually grows, as amazing as that is.

    April - June comes from the period that we (in the UK) were living under lockdown conditions. But he may well have added to the recordings in September when he had returned from the US.

    "Lavatory Lil'", that name ringed a bell, found it : "My cousin Lil' comes home at 8, that's late for her"
    Macca finally finding a use for RTP ? ;-)

    The Beatles Project is a very informative and reliable source.

    Has Paul McCartney confirmed that the new album was recorded at his Hog Hill Studio or has it been assumed it was because of the publicity photos / film taken there in September? The reason why I ask is because under the lock down rules last Spring, Paul shouldn't have been travelling there from his home. Travelling to work at his recording studio (about a twenty minute drive away) was hardly 'absolutely necessary' and his 'job' probably could have been done at home.

    • People are only allowed to leave the house for limited purposes
    Residents are only allowed to leave their homes to shop for basic necessities - and as infrequently as possible.

    One form of exercise a day allowed - for example a run, walk or cycle - alone or with members of your household.

    You can leave the house for any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person.

    Travelling to and from work is permitted, but only when absolutely necessary and your job cannot be done from home.

    See, that's the issue. If you're expecting a "masterpiece" from a McCartney branded McCartney album, you may be setup for disappointment.

    Neither McCartney or McCartney II would be considered amazing albums in their own write, but they are very good albums, but are also both GROWERS.
    They've both been experimental and have been panned and praised by critics all over the world. Their reception is all over the spectrum.

    Both albums have become iconic many years after their release. McCartney II didn't seem to receive the recognition it deserved until MANY years later.

    When McCartney III hits, I can see critics (once again) being all over the place with their reviews. Some will call it a pleasant experience into Paul's experimental side, the likes we haven't seen
    since 2008's Electric Arguments. Others will pan it, saying it sounds like a handful of home demos from the "McCartney Vault" which maybe should have stayed locked up.

    I can honestly see myself hearing it the first time and thinking, well, that was O.K.
    But after a few more listens, I won't be able to listen to anything else for a while because I'll REALLY like it!

    I don't think McCartney III will be a smash hit right out of the gate... and that's alright mama!

    Just before our hard lockdown began (curfew from 8pm, no visitors, work from home or permit if you can't, home schooling, most shops shut) I bought a Tascam PortaStudio. I thought I might record. We're coming out of our lockdown now and it remains 22 years since I last recorded something.

    Looking forward to Macca 3.

    Keep in mind, when the critics at Rolling Stone first did their top 500 albums in 2003, and again in 2012, Sgt. Pepper was #1. This year, RS went woke and dropped it to #24, behind Abbey Road (#5) and Revolver (#11). It's all subjective, and if a person likes something more or less than another, oh well. I don't need validation from music critics, and for certain they don't drive my decision to purchase. In the case of McCartney, I'm going to buy whatever he puts out anyway (in multiple color vinyl configurations).

    How can we stop him?
    Grab the keys and lock him up
    If we can do it, we can save the day…

    Bit too late for that now. But while some of us were obeying the rules and taking the pandemic seriously, old Macca was possibly ignoring them to make a 'pop record'. Did he need the money? Seriously? :D

    Gee, I wouldn’t buy this album if I were you. You may be complicit if it arose during criminal activities...
    And about the ever returning “did he need the money ?” question: sigh.......

    He doesn't need the money, but we do need his music.

    You may have other things to really worry about come Nov 4th, let alone Dec 11th.
