||Flowers in the Dirt (1989)|
Excellent McCartney album. After Paul was doing miserably in the 80's with HORRIBLE albums like Press To Play  and Pipes of Peace , Flowers in the Dirt was his comeback album and it IS a great album by the way. Some songs do have that late 80s production but most of the songs are timeless classics. I suggest getting the CD with 3 bonus tracks, the 1993 remastered version. It sounds better and has 3 bonus tracks that were singles. Those being Back On My Feet, Flying To My Home and Loveliest Thing. They're not amazing songs but for a dollar more i'll take a few more songs! MCCARTNEY FOREVER!

I heard a few of the singles from this album back in 1989, and always really loved "This One". When Paul released his new lounge recording, "Kisses on the Bottom", which I have playing in my car because I like it so much, I decided to download "This One", because my wife had made me put my CD's down the basement with my LP's. When I listened to the songs, I downloaded the whole album. Like good Beatle tunes, it wasn't until I heard all the songs a few times before I liked ALL of them. It has taken over from the new album for what I listen to in my car right now. I almost rated this a 5 star, but Rubber Soul is a 5 star. This is really worth another and/or a first listen though. It's really good.

After three years without a new record (the longest pause in his career so far), Flowers in the Dirt came out. The album was a little comback for Paul, after the bad efforts in "Press to Play" and "Give my Regards to Broadstreet". From the opener "My Brave Face" (co-written by Elvis Castello, like on two other songs on the album) and to the closersong "Motor of Love", Paul shows off in a new and improved souit, with the best album of his, since Tug of War. Highlights on the album is the cute lightweighter "Put It There", and the cathy poptune "This One". His "Bruce Springsteen kind'a rocker "Figure of Eight" is injoyebol, like the relaxing "Distractions". All in all, this album is in a top-five posistion over the greatest albums of his post-beatle career, and is an album that most people would find injoyebol. A great by!

||Put It There...In Your Collection|
I was a 14-year-old Beatles fan when this album came out. It was just too wimpy for me. The fact that my guitar hero David Gilmour made an appearance on it helped, but all in all I didn't get it. As I turn 30, the songs have a bit more resonance for me today. The "official" review credits much of the quality of this album to the collaboration with Elvis Costello, a "necessary artistic contrast that had been missing in McCartney's compositional process ever since his parting with Lennon". Much as I love Costello, this is a bunk argument, since Paul and John rarely wrote together, despite the "Lennon/McCartney" moniker. This album is Paul regaining his songwriting chops after the unmitigated disaster that was Press to Play. A worthy addition to the collection of any AC/Pop fan.

||return to form|
after a dissapointing "press to play" and a movie failure (broad street), away from the top 5 charts for a while and touring since 1979, things were not doing very well for paul. So he decided to form a new band, tour again, and begin a fresh songwriting partnership. The results were impressive: he decided to work with a big fan of him, elvis costello, who brought new life to the songs, his touring band was very tight and well chosen, and his 1989-90 tour was a big success. Oh by the way, flowers in the dirt (1989) put him in the charts again, and is a well structured album. Good choice for AOR music.
