Overview

Paul McCartney has been collaborating with ex-Killing Joke bassist Youth (Martin Glover) for over a decade as The Fireman, but Electric Arguments, the duo's first release since 1998, marks a dramatic shift from the electronic and dance-focused music they've made in the past. The album's varied textures include ambient excursions alongside more traditional songs with vocals and acoustic instruments. It also delivers some of the most impassioned performances from the Beatle in years, judging from rave-ups including the "Helter-Skelter"-styled "Nothing Too Much Just Out Of Sight" and a Bono-riffic "Sing the Changes."

Editorial Reviews

New York Times - Jon Pareles
It’s Mr. McCartney working by instinct and impulse, concerned with nothing more than sound. “Electric Arguments” suggests that he’d happily spend his afterlife in a recording studio, knocking out a song a day for eternity.
Rolling Stone - Will Hermes
After a decade-plus hiatus, Sir Paul revives his low-profile, weed-scented collaboration with superproducer Youth (U2, the Orb), retrofitting their abstract electronica with good ol' psychedelic rock for the ex-Beatle's headiest music in years.
