Paul McCartney's Ocean's Kingdom Product Information
Paul McCartney's Ocean's Kingdom by Paul McCartney was released Oct 04, 2011 on the Hear Music label. Ocean's Kingdom, Paul McCartney's fifth full-length classical album in 20 years, is his first ballet, its story concerning a star-crossed romance between an earthly prince and a water princess. Paul McCartney's Ocean's Kingdom McCartney's music is appropriately romantic, sometimes to the extent that the moments intended to convey creeping tension or sadness bounce with a joyous gait. Paul McCartney's Ocean's Kingdom Joy isn't a bad characteristic for a piece of music and if Ocean's Kingdom is decidedly less ambitious than Liverpool Oratorio or Standing Stone, whatever charm it has lies in its simplicity, McCartney's good cheer evident in the clean lines of his melodies and their counterpoints, the lack of melancholy in his ballads, and the triumphant brass that closes the proceedings. Paul McCartney's Ocean's Kingdom Perhaps it is pastiche -- its reworking of themes and sounds befitting a narrative that's essentially a respun Romeo and Juliet -- but Macca's sweet swagger sells a shopworn story, at least as far as a record goes. Paul McCartney's Ocean's Kingdom ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine Record Collector (magazine) (p. 97) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "With OCEAN'S KINGDOM, he simultaneously dives headfirst into the classical and dance worlds.... It's nice to hear Macca forced out of his comfort zone... " REVIEWS:. Paul McCartney's Ocean's Kingdom contains a single disc.
