    It’s a lot to delve into. As much a scholarly treatise as serious source material, the relit Flaming Pie is finally served up with the stature it deserves.

    All of the pieces in the box set complete a puzzle that explains how McCartney found himself again and hit the stride that has propelled him to the present day.

    From the off, Flaming Pie sounds like the work of a man comfortable with his past. ... The 2CD and 3LP sets will appeal to those not willing to shell out hundreds – they cherry-pick the best of the home demos, outtakes and B-sides.

    These sweetly sad songs are the ones that linger, and they’re served well by their earliest incarnations as home recordings and demos that serve as bonus tracks on both the double-disc reissue and companion 5-CD/2-DVD edition.

    I think it's an excellent album, no song is bad, Paul's voice is amazing even at 55 years old, the album includes songs like Beautiful Night,I think it's an excellent album, no song is bad, Paul's voice is amazing even at 55 years old, the album includes songs like Beautiful Night, The World Tonight, Flaming Pie and just to name a few.

    A master album that opens a new path in Paul's music. Years later he continues to release great music, more mature and more lucid.
