I wonder if he's been gauging responses with his 2015 releases as a way of finalizing the SHMG tracklist. It sounds like Yeezus was finalized in one final rush so SHMG may still be coming together.

It's impossible not to hear Drake saying "I sing a hook they sing along with me" in the back of my head when I listen to this

This strikes me as odd because I read somewhere that he informally gave the Strokes his blessing for cribbing the American Girl riff on Last Night. But I guess we all seem to be pretty forgiving when it comes to the Strokes

Agreed. The fact that it's a collaboration with McCartney, whose mother died when he was 14, makes it even more touching.

Personally, I'd even go with Classics over this for Album of the Week. It's thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable where A Better Tomorrow had me very upset at points. Also of note, the new Ghostface album is streaming over at NPR and it's very very good.
