Paul McFartney - McFartney
I hope you guys get the awesome pun I made with McCartney's name up there. Yeah so this album was the first McCartney solo album besides some gay soundtrack he put together with George Martin or something during a coke binge or something. Basically this album shows that Paul McCartney circa 1970 had more of an ear for melody in his poo than most songwriters ever have in their lifetime. Seriously, insert a headphone jack into one of his turds and you probably hear all sorts of wonderful melodys and hooks coming out of it.
The problem with this album is that there's only like two songs on it, the rest are just McCartney noodling with his guitar like Eric Clapton! WTF!? Where are my fully crafted pop masterpieces like "Her Majesty" and "Smells Like Teen Spirit?" Paul even did the drums on this album. Paul can't drum that well, it just sounds like he savagely beats his drum kit with a rolling pin like how he savagely beats his wife.
None of the lyrics on this album are any good either, I didn't even pay attention to them, he's probably singing about Linda McCartney or his mom or something. I don't know, this album is alright. "Maybe I'm Amazed" is a great song. Most of the lyrics are like "LA DEE DA DE DAA" or "life's a bummer/ when you're a hummer."
I think this album is alright, what do you think?
Rating: This album is a solid 7/10. Actually it's not, it's more like a 123/248.
What's with the album cover and all? It looks like Paul was eating a bowl of spaghetti but ate all the noodles and just left the sauce and all the meatballs out, get it!? because he's a vegetarian!! Haha! Pretty clever cover really.
