Synopsis

Album Description
Paul McCartney's 2008 album with producer Youth. Each track written,recorded and sung in the space of one day with Paul McCartney, playing all instruments. 'The album's opener is classic rock and an instant attention grabber. A heavy guitar riff with loud drums and souring vocals, it's like nothing The Fireman have ever done before.' The Fireman are back after a ten-year break. Electric Arguments is their third and brand new studio album and it's not the album people might expect from the mysterious duo.'

MACCA'S Inspiring Masterpiece !
Brien Comerford | Glenview, Illinois United States | 11/25/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Electric Arguments is indisputably the most surprising and inspiring CD of the year. Paul McCartney surfaces with a masterpiece of experimental music and great vocals that fuse ambient, hard rock, blues, trance, ballads and electronic music. Producer Youth was integral to this CD. It contains arguably the greatest medley of Paul's songs ever commencing with "Sing The Changes," "Travelling Light," "Highway", " Light From Your Lighthouse," "Sun Is Shining," and "Dance 'Till We're High,". MACCA and Beatles fans will love this trippy and psychedelic CD becuase it has vintage tracks similar to great songs off the White Album, Ram and Paul's other masterful Fireman CD the cosmic"Rushes" wherein he expertly played several guitars, cymbals and resplendent keyboards. MACCA'S roaring, soaring and refined vocals and ambient virtuosity at age 67 are priceless. This is the most vindicating CD of MACCA'S career because it showcases his virtousity as a vocalist, musician, composer and lyricist ! It's safe to say that Lennon would have been impressed by this amazingly creative CD."
McCartney - One of the Greatest Musicians Ever makes a Great
DH Gummy | New York, NY United States | 11/25/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"McCartney gets slagged down by people who are musical hacks. Hell, we are all musical hacks compared to him and only a select handful of others. Yet, despite that fact (oh, I'm sure some people will argue with this statement but it's pretty much an absolute fact), people feel compelled to rip this guy a new one on virtually every album he does. While most reviews for this brilliant album were very, very positive, I did read a few mediocre reviews and in those, you can tell the reviewer didn't even listen to the album. Like anything associated with McCartney automatically gets an "F" grade. Let's face it, while he has made some mistakes here and there, the guy takes risks and has made better, more impactful songs, whether pop, political, heavy, classical, jazzy, avant garde, new wave, dance, country and blues than almost anyone else on the planet, whether living or dead. It amazes me how some people can just give this album one star. Yeah, like you or almost anybody else could do any better. One star??!! Come on... what a joke! At WORST, it is a 4 star album... at worst.

The varied songs on this album have so many different treats and varied melodies... The songs range the full gamut and create a wonderful sonic landscape. 'Sing the Changes' probably should be the first single. From the first track "Nothing Too Much" to "Two Magpies" to "Highway" to "Dance 'Til We're High" to "Lifelong Passion", so many genres are covered yet they still maintain the classic McCartney melodic form yet with new twists. From the Beatles until now, McCartney was never afraid to experiment, he was a musical revolutionary that was barely recognized compared to John... but he certainly should be: Sgt. Pepper, a declaration of freedom by becoming a new band within the real band, the culmination of climactic sound at the end of A Day in the Life which really supercharges the song into possibly being the Beatles all-time greatest song, the tape loops on Tomorrow Never Knows, writing Helter Skelter which was a bridge to the Heavy Metal movement, the Carnival of Light track, the sound links of Abbey Road Side 2, and even Yesterday which bridged pop and classical music (Beach Boys and the Stones with "As Tears Go By" helped here as well) were all his contributions. I'm not knocking John - he was an amazing songwriter and a genius in his own right... but just because we are lucky to still have McCartney alive doesn't mean critics can just kick the guy around and pretty much consistently give him mediocre reviews all the time. This album is truly special. And it should be acknowledged that McCartney has had quite a run of late, with Memory Almost Full, Chaos and Creation in the Backyard and now this, we are fortunate to be living during this genius' time on earth."
