"A thought without accepting it" by Wingspan

Albert Collins named his band after a Wings album, I only wish he wouldn't stick to the mellow folk orientated pop songs like "Mull of Kintyre". After a few songs the style gets worn out. The discography by his idol McCartney is so much richer than some soggy ballads.
"Blackbird" (by the Beatles) surely has his charms but lacks energy and power. So why use it as the main inspiration for the title track "A thought without accepting it"?
The whole cd is a bit too mellow and too easy.
If Collins only would listen to albums like "Ram" and "Band on the run" his albums would have more spirit and punch.
Now it is not bad, it's ...let's say: nice. And isn't that the worst discription an album can get? Just "nice".
