Chaos and Creation in the Backyard songs Product Information
Chaos and Creation in the Backyard album for sale by Paul McCartney was released Sep 13, 2005 on the Capitol label. That 2005's CHAOS & CREATION IN THE BACKYARD arrived as a dramatic return to form for Paul McCartney is something of an oversimplification. Chaos and Creation in the Backyard CD music The fact is, dodgy orchestral and electronic side projects aside, solo Macca's only true fallow period was the mid-'80s, and the three albums prior to CHAOS were all solid, not un-Beatlesque affairs. That said, it's impossible to deny that this is one of Paul's finest post-Wings releases. Chaos and Creation in the Backyard CD music contains a single disc with 13 songs. ...See Full Description

||Finally, McCartney's making music that he WANTS to make!|
Here, on this album, we see that Paul McCartney is making the kind of music that he probably wants to make: introspective, layered, and unabashed pop. And boy, does he deliver. Of course, at Paul's age, who wouldn't be thinking about one's life and what they did with it (let's not count Mick Jagger)? This was the emotional background to the brilliant album "Memory Almost Full", which Paul was actually working on before "Chaos and Creation in the Backyard" was started. And, it is some of Paul's tightest playing in years. The over-experimentation (in my opinion) of "Driving Rain" and the free-wheeling "Flaming Pie" and the oldies-flavored "Run Devil Run" had places where they subtly unraveled, where some part would be out of place, or a song didn't exactly work, or what-have-you. People have expected this before on McCartney's albums, but here there is none of that. All of it is deliberate, and beautifully unforced. You would never recognized Paul if you listened to this album, especially if you listened to some of his other albums. Definitely, a unique album by an artist whom people had thought pegged down to a specific genre. Well, so much for the McCartney stereotype! Take a listen and see for yourself.

||DONT BUY SPECIAL EDITION|
This is the official release of Chaos. The DVD version of the album is horrible because the DVD is very boring and un- informative.

This is a top notch collection of songs. Paul is still out there challenging himself. He makes solid "adult music". Any fan will appreciate this cd. It is time to give him his due.

||Chaos and Vanilla|
Paul's latest creation is almost boring enough to stop your pulse. Only a handful of the songs are worthwhile, and the rest sound unbearably plain. We get a glimpse of Sir Pauls pop genius in "Fine Line", the gorgeous "Too Much Rain" (also the best song on this cd), and "This Never Happened Before". The recording quality of this disc puts Pauls voice front and center ...it's warm, clear, reassuring, and soothing. I am a collection completist, and I will buy any new product by Sir Paul..be alerted this disc is NOT for the casual fan... Overall, I think the "Flaming Pie" CD was a 5 star effort compared to "Chaos and Creation..."

||Best Album in (Four) Years|
I've read many reviews and articles stating that this is Macca's best album in years. Yeah, this is his best new studio recording in exactly four years. Chaos and Creation does not have nearly the emotional impact of Flaming Pie or Driving Rain, or the emotional energy of Run Devil Run. But those are all great albums. McCartney should receive credit for making an album which is very different from any of his others. He is still striving to get it right. And this may be his most consistent album since you know when. Every song is insightful and affecting. Not his best, but very good Anyway.
