Paul McCartney - 'Kisses On The Bottom'

One for the over 50's perhaps

  • Release Date 06 Feb, 2012
  • Producer Tommy LiPuma
  • Record Label Hear Music/MPL
  • Fact Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder apparently feature on the album
Nope, this sure as hell ain’t one for the Skrillex enthusiast in your life nor, for that matter, anyone under 50. But, if anyone on earth has earned the right to make the dreaded Stuff I Loved When I Was Little covers album, it’s Paul McCartney. Yes, that title is more than a bit embarrassing and, yes, of course it drifts into cheese quite often, but only those with a heart made of steel would not raise a smile at some point during his sentimental journey through the American classics (plus a couple of his own in that style) that taught him the ropes all those years ago.

A satisfying return to Verve form that’s also a churning maelstrom of death, riots, revolution, terrorism and two-faced politicians

Kygo - 'Cloud Nine' Review

Medium-sized guests and the vibey sounds of tropical house combine on an album that's not quite euphoric
