This album has a very different feel to its parent album McCartney III. Paul sings or duets on most tracks, with a few covers thrown in by other artists.

First the great. Find My Way featuring Beck is a great interpretation and makes me think that Paul and Beck should collaborate on an original album together. That could be fantastic. Similarly the Damon Albarn remix of Long Tailed Winter Bird hints at what Paul and the Goriilaz could achieve together.. Slidin’ given a remix treatment here, is possibly better than the original. ‘Pretty Boys’ is also well done, sounding more like it should be on a Fireman album (which is no bad thing).

The covers seem out of place on an album predominantly featuring Paul himself. Sure, Dominic Fike’s version of ‘Kiss Of Venus’ is pleasant enough, and Phoebe Bridgers improves on Paul’s version of ‘Seize The Day’, but they should really be their own covers on their own albums.

Most other tracks are enjoyable, but then we come to the bad. The 3D RD. Remix of Deep Deep Down, at over 11 minutes, is at least 7 minutes too long. If a track is going to be this long it needs to be exciting or at least interesting enough to hold the attention, and it fails completely. It could have been better if compacted to 3 or 4 minutes, but it goes on and on and I soon lost interest. It just doesn’t go anywhere. The original version on McCartney III was long enough, but it kept my attention, whereas this one doesn’t. This is surely the track the ‘skip’ button was invented for!.

The final track on 5e CD is the Idris Elba remix of ‘Long Tailed Winter Bird’, a kind of mix of reggae, pop and rap. It’s ok, but interesting only for the fact that it has more Paul verses not on the original album, but otherwise a weak way to close out a mixed bag of an album.

I liked the homemade feel of the original album, which I think complemented the first McCartney album well, and there are interesting interpretations here. I’m glad I got the album, but I wouldn’t recommend this as a starting point for anyone wanting to explore Macca’s work for the first time.

I am guessing that Paul was always writing with another partner for his classic band (the Beatles, you know?),...so I think that may be the case here in making these tracks much more pleasing than the "real" album''s versions? But the changes introduced by the "partners" on this set really bring out reasons to like the songs, where as the originals were a bit bare bones these are more full and lively ...and even surprising. The version of "Wives and Women" here has a soulful side I never even caught in my listening to the original . Then "Seize The Day" is given some Beatle-esque sounds and pulls it right up into the light!

Just before this was going to be released I''d thought, "...well, I don''t know if this one''s going to be worth a shot?" after listening back to III itself. Then , the marketing worked in my case because that Beck video sparked my interest in "III imagined" and I''m glad it did. There''s a lot to like here. Maybe Sir Paul could use a "Little Help From His Friends" in making new music after all? ....ahem...

I got the Target version of this which looks a lot like the "Japanese" version sold here with the poster. If it wasn''t for that Beck video and my falling on it with a loose few bucks to spare in the store....you guys (and gals) would not have had a review here to go on!

A belated physical release of the album, which takes a little bit of the sheen off & I think in years to come “III Imagined” will be viewed as one of those lockdown albums. As with a lot of these kinda tribute albums it a mixed bag of quality, highlights for me are Dominic Fike joyfully Beatlesque version of“The Kiss of Venus”. Phoebe Bridgers’ angelic vocals make “Seize the Day” pretty life affirming. EBO gives “Slidin’ ” a raucous makeover & 3D (of Massive Attack fame) gives a nod to McCartney’s "Temporary Secretary” with his mix of “Deep Deep Feeling”. It a shame the artist involved in this project were not give carte blanche with McCartney’s entire back catalogue, I would have paid good money to hear a dub version of “Mull of Kintyre”. So some interesting interpretations of McCartney’s music by contemporary artists (there was a time when McCartney was more interested in having hit singles than moving away from his musical comfort zone), but I don’t feel I will be playing the album that often.

McCartney III was Macca''s most successful solo album for years, in terms of chart position. Cynics could point to the amount of editions of it that were offered to his fanatical followers who snapped up the limited edition multi-coloured vinyl like hot cakes. Many fans simply say that it''s a really great album and deserved the number one spot on its own merits. Personally, while I found McCartney III to be enjoyable in places, compared with his very best material it is an undoubtedly patchy album, albeit with a lot of McCartney charm. The original McCartney III album divided opinions, and I''m afraid that this McCartney III Imagined remix/covers album is even more divisive, as it allows a host of contemporary musicians to put their mark on Paul''s most recent release. You may ask me, if you weren''t that impressed with McCartney III, then why did you buy this one? Well, firstly, I''ve got every other album Paul McCartney has released, so I''m not about to stop now and, secondly, I''ve got a very broad musical palate and was interested to hear what artists such as Phoebe Bridgers and Damon Albarn would do with the source material. I''d already heard the Beck-infused Find My Way and had quite enjoyed that, so figured it was worth a go and, besides, perhaps they could even make some of the songs even better? My thoughts: 1. Find My Way (ft. Beck) – I very much like this; it''s a quality remix of the song and, with the added beats, I actually prefer it to the original. 2. The Kiss Of Venus (Dominic Fike) – Honestly, never heard of Dominic before, but genuinely think this is terrible. Weak and lacking substance. 3. Pretty Boys (feat. Khruangbin) – Very unremarkable and adds little to the source material. 4. Women & Wives (St. Vincent remix) – Absolutely love this one! St. Vincent adds a classy, sultry trip-hop vibe to the song and elevates it beyond the original material. 5. Deep Down (Blood Orange remix) – Listenable, but nothing special at all. 6. Seize The Day (feat. Phoebe Bridgers) – Nice, breezy version, but not a patch on the Macca original which, for me, is one of the standout tracks on McCartney III. 7. Slidin'' (EOB remix) – Sadly, I think it loses the raw power of the original (again, one of my favourite cuts on McCartney III), but it''s certainly not awful. 8. Long Tailed Winter Bird (Damon Albarn Remix) – Really not impressed and was hoping from a lot more from Damon, as I generally rate him highly as an artist. 9. Lavatory Lil (Josh Homme) – I''m a big QOTSA and Josh Homme fan, but even he can''t make such a turgid song shine, try as he may. 10. When Winter Comes (Anderson .Paak Remix) - One of my favourite songs on the original McCartney III album, but this artificial sheen given to it by the remix manages to sabotage the humble charm of the original. 11. Deep Deep Feeling (3D RDN Remix) - I really like the Temporary Secretary influenced synths, but other than that it''s not an improvement on the original. 12. Long Tailed Winter Bird (Idris Elba Remix) - Dull, dull, dull. All-in-all, this is an overwhelmingly ordinary release that would have perhaps been best re-released as a bonus disc to the original album rather than a standalone, full-priced album. I''m pleased to own a copy, however, just for the Beck, St. Vincent and Phoebe Bridgers cuts and the concept was an interesting one, despite the mixed results of the execution. I can''t see McCartney III Imagined persuading any doubters of the original album that they should give it another hearing; other than St. Vincent nobody here has really discovered hidden depths to any of the McCartney III tracks and forced the listener to hear it in a different light, something that really good covers should do. This album is very listenable in places, but I very much prefer the original Paul McCartney release and, as I said, for me it''s not one of his best. It''s still better than Kisses On The Bottom, though.

Paul McCartney| McCartney III Imagined (CD) | 23.07.21 | Kein AutoRip Da haben wir 1½ Jahre Lockdown und Sir Paul McCartney fällt nix anderes ein als sein kurz vor Weihnachten erschienenes Album „McCartney III“ nochmals zu veröffentlichen. Als eine Art Cover-Album mit leicht veränderten Songstrukturen und jede Menge Gastmusiker und Gastsänger. Das Remix-Album „McCartney III Imagined“ wird beschrieben als ein Album mit "Neuinterpretationen, Remixen und Covern" von Songs von McCartney III und war bereits am 16. April auf Streaming-Diensten verfügbar. Das Album enthielt Dominic Fikes Version des "The Kiss of Venus", das als seine erste Single veröffentlicht wurde, mit dem Track von Beck und dem Remix von EOB, die die nachfolgenden Singles sind. Die Auswahl der Tracks wurde von McCartney selbst kuratiert, mit "Freunden, Fans und brandneuen Bekanntschaften". „Mc Cartney III“ erreichte in England die Spitze der Album Charts. Das ist McCartney in seiner britischen Heimat zuletzt 1989 mit „Flowers In The Dirt“ gelungen. Hierzulande landete „III“ ebenfalls auf Platz 1 der Album Charts. In den USA kletterte der Longplayer auf Rang zwei was Paul McCartney den Rekord bescherte der erste Künstler zu sein, der in sechs Dekaden ein Nr. 2 Album in den Staaten hatte. Das DIY-Album „McCartney III“, das während dessen entstand, was McCartney als „Rockdown“ bezeichnete, erwies sich als verspielt und belastbar; ein zeitgemäßes Gegenmittel gegen die erstickte, existenzielle Stimmung der Covid-Ära. Nun also wird die Kuh nochmal gemolken. Lassen wir hierbei einfach den Sammelbegriff „Album der Überarbeitungen“ verwenden, zumal einige der Tracks den großen Mann selbst enthalten und andere nicht. Es besteht laut Promo-Material aus „einer Listen-Sammlung von Freunden, Fans und Bekannten, die jeweils ihre Lieblingsmomente von „McCartney III“ in ihrem eigenen Stil abdecken und/oder neu interpretieren“. Es strahlt auch nach "Recorded in Rockdown" Wortspiele in Hülle und Fülle aus, die dazu dienen, seine experimentelle Schmelztiegel-Atmosphäre zu verstärken. Die Lieder sind nicht in Stein gemeißelt. Sie sind nicht auf einen Standpunkt beschränkt oder unterliegen Grenzen und Regeln. Die Auserwählten sind „Freunde und Bekannte“ von der angesagten Spitze der zeitgenössischen alternativen Musik und sie alle gehen Risiken ein und versuchen dem legendären Songwriter gerecht zu werden. McCartney hat ihnen weitestgehend freie Hand gelassen. Es ist Beck, der mit einem Remix von FIND MY WAY in feinem, elektronischem Stil den Anfang macht. Es entspricht McCartneys neu entdecktem Glauben an den Zufall, dass die Reihenfolge der Tracks völlig vom Original abweichen sollte. Der Kalifornier behält die halbgerappten Strophen, den Falsett-Refrain und die hochaktuelle Zeile über das „Überwältigen von deinen Ängsten“ bei, aber nicht viel mehr. Er verzichtet auf die Gitarren und verstärkt den Groove durch eine wummernde, hypnotische Basslinie und einige Monsterbeats. Der verwobene Vocoder trägt zur Partystimmung bei, und am Ende klingt alles wie ein Talking Heads-Track oder sogar etwas von McCartney II. Dominic Fike verwandelt die Akustikballade THE KISS OF VENUS anschließend in eine R&B-Nummer. Dem aufstrebenden US-Sänger/Rapper ist es egal, McCartneys schrillen und leicht wackeligen Ausdruck der emotionalen Verletzlichkeit auf seinem Original zu replizieren, sondern ihn durch seinen eigenen lakonischen Stil und Wortspiel zu ersetzen. Er fügt dem Song sogar seine eigenen Texte hinzu, mit Anspielungen auf politisch spaltende Geschichten in den Zeitungen, die ihm eine dunkle Kante verleihen. Mit anderen Worten, er führt eine Generalüberholung durch, aber seltsamerweise endet er mit Segmenten, die stark an die Beatles der Pepper-Ära erinnern. An anderer Stelle wendet Phoebe Bridgers ihre eigene fesselnde Art von Drama und benebelter Melancholie auf das melodische SEIZE THE DAY (ein echtes Cover) an und hebt das Gefühl des Verlustes im Herzen des Songs wirklich hervor. Dieses Cover gefällt mir sogar besser als das „Original“. Radiohead-Gitarrist EOB verbündet sich unterdessen mit Bloc Party-Produzent Paul Epworth und vermasselt SLIDIN auf großartige Weise, während er den Gesang und die Instrumentierung von McCartney beibehält. Es beginnt wie Led Zeppelins GOOD TIMES BAD TIMES, es ist schneller als das Original, es ist verzerrt, es hat mehr Gitarren, es hat eine Wand aus Synthie-Noise und ja, es erinnert an HELTER SKELTER. „Das ist, was ich tun will, wer ich sein möchte“, singt Paul. Darüber hinaus gibt es auf dem Album noch viele weitere überraschende Momente, nicht zuletzt das texanische Trio Khruangbin, das PRETTY BOYS als ein Stück psychedelischen Funk unkenntlich macht, und Blood Orange, das DEEP DOWN mit jazzigen Piano-Akkorden und rückwärts gerichteten Gitarreneffekten ausstattet. Von St. Vincent stammt der Remix zu der WOMEN AND WIVES, der den Song ein grüblerisches Portishead-Feeling verleiht, komplett mit Gospel-Harmonien und einem ihrer viszeralen Gitarrensoli. Von Albarn stammt die radikale Neuinterpretation von LONG TAILED WINTER BURN, so dubby und trippig, dass es auf einem Gorillaz-Album nicht fehl am Platz klingen würde. Diese rückwärts gerichteten Gesangseffekte, der durchschlagende Bass und dann das Entfesseln des charakteristischen Gitarrenriffs des Songs am Ende sind allerdings nicht mein Fall. Ein Irrweg ist auch Josh Hommes Cover von LAVATORY LIL, da der Rocker von Queens of the Stone Age eindeutig nicht weiß, wohin damit. Er hat zweifellos den Kürzeren gezogen, als er den vermeintlich schwächsten Song bearbeiten „durfte“ und hier jeden Charme entzogen hat. Die jazzigen Einschläge sind einfach nur irritierend. „McCartney III Imagined“ hat jedoch kaum Spielraum, was eine bemerkenswerte Leistung ist.

Da haben wir 1½ Jahre Lockdown und Sir Paul McCartney fällt nix anderes ein als sein kurz vor Weihnachten erschienenes Album „McCartney III“ nochmals zu veröffentlichen. Als eine Art Cover-Album mit leicht veränderten Songstrukturen und jede Menge Gastmusiker und Gastsänger. Das Remix-Album „McCartney III Imagined“ wird beschrieben als ein Album mit "Neuinterpretationen, Remixen und Covern" von Songs von McCartney III und war bereits am 16. April auf Streaming-Diensten verfügbar. Das Album enthielt Dominic Fikes Version des "The Kiss of Venus", das als seine erste Single veröffentlicht wurde, mit dem Track von Beck und dem Remix von EOB, die die nachfolgenden Singles sind. Die Auswahl der Tracks wurde von McCartney selbst kuratiert, mit "Freunden, Fans und brandneuen Bekanntschaften".

„Mc Cartney III“ erreichte in England die Spitze der Album Charts. Das ist McCartney in seiner britischen Heimat zuletzt 1989 mit „Flowers In The Dirt“ gelungen. Hierzulande landete „III“ ebenfalls auf Platz 1 der Album Charts. In den USA kletterte der Longplayer auf Rang zwei was Paul McCartney den Rekord bescherte der erste Künstler zu sein, der in sechs Dekaden ein Nr. 2 Album in den Staaten hatte. Das DIY-Album „McCartney III“, das während dessen entstand, was McCartney als „Rockdown“ bezeichnete, erwies sich als verspielt und belastbar; ein zeitgemäßes Gegenmittel gegen die erstickte, existenzielle Stimmung der Covid-Ära. Nun also wird die Kuh nochmal gemolken.

Lassen wir hierbei einfach den Sammelbegriff „Album der Überarbeitungen“ verwenden, zumal einige der Tracks den großen Mann selbst enthalten und andere nicht. Es besteht laut Promo-Material aus „einer Listen-Sammlung von Freunden, Fans und Bekannten, die jeweils ihre Lieblingsmomente von „McCartney III“ in ihrem eigenen Stil abdecken und/oder neu interpretieren“. Es strahlt auch nach "Recorded in Rockdown" Wortspiele in Hülle und Fülle aus, die dazu dienen, seine experimentelle Schmelztiegel-Atmosphäre zu verstärken. Die Lieder sind nicht in Stein gemeißelt. Sie sind nicht auf einen Standpunkt beschränkt oder unterliegen Grenzen und Regeln.

Die Auserwählten sind „Freunde und Bekannte“ von der angesagten Spitze der zeitgenössischen alternativen Musik und sie alle gehen Risiken ein und versuchen dem legendären Songwriter gerecht zu werden. McCartney hat ihnen weitestgehend freie Hand gelassen. Es ist Beck, der mit einem Remix von FIND MY WAY in feinem, elektronischem Stil den Anfang macht. Es entspricht McCartneys neu entdecktem Glauben an den Zufall, dass die Reihenfolge der Tracks völlig vom Original abweichen sollte. Der Kalifornier behält die halbgerappten Strophen, den Falsett-Refrain und die hochaktuelle Zeile über das „Überwältigen von deinen Ängsten“ bei, aber nicht viel mehr. Er verzichtet auf die Gitarren und verstärkt den Groove durch eine wummernde, hypnotische Basslinie und einige Monsterbeats. Der verwobene Vocoder trägt zur Partystimmung bei, und am Ende klingt alles wie ein Talking Heads-Track oder sogar etwas von McCartney II.

Dominic Fike verwandelt die Akustikballade THE KISS OF VENUS anschließend in eine R&B-Nummer. Dem aufstrebenden US-Sänger/Rapper ist es egal, McCartneys schrillen und leicht wackeligen Ausdruck der emotionalen Verletzlichkeit auf seinem Original zu replizieren, sondern ihn durch seinen eigenen lakonischen Stil und Wortspiel zu ersetzen. Er fügt dem Song sogar seine eigenen Texte hinzu, mit Anspielungen auf politisch spaltende Geschichten in den Zeitungen, die ihm eine dunkle Kante verleihen. Mit anderen Worten, er führt eine Generalüberholung durch, aber seltsamerweise endet er mit Segmenten, die stark an die Beatles der Pepper-Ära erinnern.

An anderer Stelle wendet Phoebe Bridgers ihre eigene fesselnde Art von Drama und benebelter Melancholie auf das melodische SEIZE THE DAY (ein echtes Cover) an und hebt das Gefühl des Verlustes im Herzen des Songs wirklich hervor. Dieses Cover gefällt mir sogar besser als das „Original“. Radiohead-Gitarrist EOB verbündet sich unterdessen mit Bloc Party-Produzent Paul Epworth und vermasselt SLIDIN auf großartige Weise, während er den Gesang und die Instrumentierung von McCartney beibehält. Es beginnt wie Led Zeppelins GOOD TIMES BAD TIMES, es ist schneller als das Original, es ist verzerrt, es hat mehr Gitarren, es hat eine Wand aus Synthie-Noise und ja, es erinnert an HELTER SKELTER. „Das ist, was ich tun will, wer ich sein möchte“, singt Paul.

Darüber hinaus gibt es auf dem Album noch viele weitere überraschende Momente, nicht zuletzt das texanische Trio Khruangbin, das PRETTY BOYS als ein Stück psychedelischen Funk unkenntlich macht, und Blood Orange, das DEEP DOWN mit jazzigen Piano-Akkorden und rückwärts gerichteten Gitarreneffekten ausstattet. Von St. Vincent stammt der Remix zu der WOMEN AND WIVES, der den Song ein grüblerisches Portishead-Feeling verleiht, komplett mit Gospel-Harmonien und einem ihrer viszeralen Gitarrensoli. Von Albarn stammt die radikale Neuinterpretation von LONG TAILED WINTER BURN, so dubby und trippig, dass es auf einem Gorillaz-Album nicht fehl am Platz klingen würde. Diese rückwärts gerichteten Gesangseffekte, der durchschlagende Bass und dann das Entfesseln des charakteristischen Gitarrenriffs des Songs am Ende sind allerdings nicht mein Fall.

Ein Irrweg ist auch Josh Hommes Cover von LAVATORY LIL, da der Rocker von Queens of the Stone Age eindeutig nicht weiß, wohin damit. Er hat zweifellos den Kürzeren gezogen, als er den vermeintlich schwächsten Song bearbeiten „durfte“ und hier jeden Charme entzogen hat. Die jazzigen Einschläge sind einfach nur irritierend. „McCartney III Imagined“ hat jedoch kaum Spielraum, was eine bemerkenswerte Leistung ist. Das Album ist eine Feier des musikalischen Eklektizismus, der zeigt, wie ein faszinierendes Konzept in der Praxis wirklich funktionieren kann. Wenn es einem gefällt Sicher, es wird die Zyniker geben, die McCartney vorwerfen Millennials, Hipster und junge Musos schamlos zu umwerben, indem er all diese Indie-Superstars engagiert, um seinen Songs ihren Stempel aufzudrücken. De Mut finde ich mehr als lobenswert. Ob es das aber wirklich gebraucht hat, steht auf einem anderen Blatt.
