“The sound of a 71-year-old Beatle getting back in the ring. McCartney plays to his strengths: Wings-like glam rock, Little Richard howls and, yep, some remarkably Beatlesque pop tunes and George Martin-ish arrangements (thanks partly to Martin's son, Giles, who produced several tracks),” the magazine said.
“As Macca understands better than almost anyone, rock & roll is fueled by a hunger for good times and an ageless exuberance,” the magazine noted.
Several other rock veterans made the list, as well. John Fogerty was rated #10 for his album, “Wrote a Song For Everyone,” David Bowie's “The Next Day” made #16 on the list, while Bonnie Raitt's “Slipstream” was listed as #22.
