Paul's definitely written better albums than any solo Beatle during 70s. George's ATMP & "Concert For Bangladesh" excepted but not really.

Hey, I have that album too! Not crazy about side 4 but the rest is pretty cool.

From side 1, this is "Sandy's Blues": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBjG3w0UYrs

And right now I'm listening to this, an LP I used to own many moons ago:

LAGWAFIS is an album about loss. Spiritualized's mastermind Jason Pierce's long-time girlfriend left him to get married in secret to a singer in a then-massive band. The day I bought the album, someone drove their car vigorously into the back wheel of my parked bike, so I can sympathize with Mr Pierce. Grin

Everyone should have heard this album at least once in their lives.

Some music I've been enjoying lately:

FKA twigs - LP1



FKA twigs has one of the best sounds right now. I love Video Girl and Lights On.

FKA twigs - M3LL155X



Just finished listening to this now. Again, great sound and I particularly enjoy the closing Mothercreep.

The Weeknd - My Dear Melancholy,



His best work since 2013's Kiss Land, and in my opinion as urgent and compelling a work of Noir R&B as has ever been recorded. Personal, staggering production and performance, with an emotional wallop that floors me. Try Me might just be the best song he's ever recorded. What a chorus! Check out that sneaky synth that comes in on the final chorus.

Tinashe - Joyride



Tinashe is one of the most impressive new R&B stars, and this album follows up very nicely on her last two LPs. Top tier production throughout. Check out Me So Bad.

Kelela - Take Me Apart



One of my favourite albums of last year. Kelela may just be the best new R&B talent since The Weeknd. Has something of Janet in her vocals. Sublime production, writing and performance. Onandon is a favourite.

Drake - Nice For What (single)



A devastating production, that nearly cuts the flesh, so hard and driving is it. Drake's trademark singing rapping style is as potent as ever. Great hook/sample. Very excited for the new album coming in June.

George Michael - Older



My favourite George Michael album by far. A real masterpiece of atmosphere and introspection. The title track is amazing, as are Fast Love and Star People.

Calvin Harris - Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1



A similar project to Mark Ronson's last one, lining up an A list collaborators and working in a production environment that is at the front of the game. Feels featuring Pharrell is the top track here, but I also love Nuh Ready Nuh Ready featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR, who sings in a beautiful Jamaican patois. This was released as a single and is unfortunately not on the album.

Interesting. I like "Blame", his collaboration with John Newman.

Right now I'm listening to the opening track from Spacemen 3's 1987 album The Perfect Prescription:
