I just got "Chaos And Creation In The Backyard" a few days ago. I haven't listened to it yet. To be honest, I was fairly disappointed with "Driving Rain", and I kind og gave up collecting and following his solo career. I absolutely LOVE the song "My Valentine". I would put it up against his greatest songs, like "My Love", "Let It Be", and "The Long And Winding Road".

Perhaps I put too much faith in atmosphere

I'd avoided solo McCartney stuff for years (except for Band on the Run, which was unavoidable). 

Then I bought the debut solo, which is a wonderful uncut gem. 

Much later, with a little help from feelsflow, I found myself listening to (and enjoying) Off the Ground.

I may just take it from there...

I like about half of Driving Rain.  The opening song, Lonely Road, really had me optimistic when I first heard the album, but then it settles into MOR McCartney pretty fast.  I do like the album closer Rise the Raindrops.  I used to really like Freedom when it first came out, but I think I was still too caught up in post 9-11 Patriotism to realize that it's a pretty mediocre song.  Good message, so so execution.
