Sir Paul is an elder statesman now, but Chaos and Creationin the Backyard finds him in tastefully restrained form, penning songs worthy of his finest hour. McCartney crafts this collection of songs with exquisite balance, lining up haunting chimes and heartfelt lyrics alongside Beatles-ish multitracked vocals.
Emotionally, Chaos and Creation manages to avoid being mired in oversentimentality, while retaining a powerful, understated sincerity. Poignant though it is, however, the record is essentially positive and hopeful. Chaos and Creation in the Backyard displays the full range of McCartney's inimitable talent, presenting listeners with one of his finest solo albums.
A RE-ISSUE OF SIR PAUL McCARTNEY'S 2005 CLASSIC ALBUM.
