In honor of the upcoming album "McCartney III," the panel discusses the 1980 album "McCartney II."
Just like its predecessor, 1970's "McCartney,"" McCartney II is a completely solo project -- just about everything done by only Paul. Unlike its predecessor, and unlike anything Paul had done to that point, McCartney II features a lot of experiments with synthesized keyboard sounds, ambient noise, repeated dance beats. Disliked by idiot critics upon its release, McCartney II ended up being seen as a prescient pioneer in the direction that electronic music would soon go in.
The panel discusses all this, and also gets into: Joel saying "the Wings" and Will pronouncing "jazz" like "jaws." Katie and Brett probably say dumb stuff too, who can remember? Anyway this is a fun episode and we hope you like it!
Oh, and we'll do a new episode when "McCartney III" comes out on Katie's birthday in Decemeber 2020!
