DVD Review: McCartney Wingspan
Paul’s nothing but consistent in his PR spin: just like his revisions of Beatles history, what might have been a reasonably amusing and informative program becomes another installment in The Gospel According to St. Paul.
Ed note: docweasel has been accused of being overly worshipful of St. Paul (see his review of McCartney’s live Tampa concert) so in the interest of balance, here is another opinion of the pretty Beatle and his works. This is a vintage review from the pre-website, lovingly reproduced here and coated with glucose.
I’d had this great idea a long time ago to do an Alice In Chains retrospective on the band’s CDs and how they’ve progressed as songwriters and musicians. But I could never really kick myself in the ass to do it because I’d held out hope that Layne Staley could get his troubled past in order and get back with AIC to make something new.

This record is a dense, beautifully lush work of stunning depth and emotional anguish. I truly haven’t heard anything quite this beautiful since Ok Computer, and if you’ve heard that gem you’ll know that is quite a compliment.
