Paul McCartney – Egypt Station & McCartney III

Sir Paul McCartney presents a fascinating point-and-counterpoint in the Late Era canon. 2018’s elaborate, pop-leaning Egypt Station and 2020’s looser, homemade follow-up McCartney III pose a series of existential quandaries: Which type of album is preferable from our rock gods? And at a certain point, how much of a difference is there between the two? Plus a rare visit from our producer Ian, a touching letter from a long-time listener, and a frank conversation about one of Macca’s worst songs ever. Maybe we’re appalled.
