Sir Paul Mccartney - Paul Mccartney's Kisses On The Bottom, "A Minor Gem To A Major Talent"

Paul Mccartney 's latest album of covers has been released today, with a favourable reception among critics set to greet it into the wide world after the reviews aggregator site Metacritic scored it at an average 74% - not too shabby indeed. 'Kisses On The Bottom' sees the Beatle pick out some of the more obscure songs from the earlier days of American popular culture, giving them his own treatment with cameo appearances from Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder.
Leading the way with the compliments are the Bbc who comment that the record "Remind[s] you just what a good singer the rocking knight can be. And after years of personal and professional earnestness, he sounds like he's having fun." The Telegraph meanwhile sum up with "It sounds like a romantic gift to his new wife and a sentimental salute to his own childhood--a minor gem from a major talent."
However not all have been enthused by MACca's efforts, with two of Britain's leading broadsheets similarly unimpressed, The Observer commenting "These standards have a lot still to say--if only they sang a little more potently here," and The Independent stating "The lite-jazz treatment of standards on Kisses on the Bottom seems like a misstep." It has to be said though that, regardless of the critics, it seems unlikely that the 69 year-old will struggle for sales, possessing as he does one of the most devout and committed fanbases in the world - he was in The Beatles after all.
