Artist: PAUL McCARTNEY
Album: McCARTNEY III – 18th solo LP
Released: 18 December 2020
NME says: “Macca’s been whiling away the hours. The result? A stellar return to his three-decade-spanning series… ‘McCartney III’ arrives with no such musical era to end, but certainly has a new one to start. Recorded solo during lockdown in March, it doesn’t so much reflect a turning tide in McCartney’s life and music, but a wider pandemic-inspired shift.”
Full review: here. Score: 4/5.
Paul McCartney: “Like any bereavement, the only way out is to remember how good it was with John. Because I can’t get over the senseless act. I can’t think about it. I’m sure it’s some
form of denial. But denial is the only way that I can deal with it.”

Turn Up The Volume: Macca still has it, still is an inspired songsmith.
But I prefer his previous, near-perfect LP Egypt Station.
