to McCartney, Godrich was at times blunt in his appraisal of McCartney's songs-in-progress during the making of Chaos and Creation in the Backyard, challenging McCartney to get the best out of the music. Although initially taken aback, McCartney appreciated Godrich's tenacity and honesty and respected him all the more for it. Advance reviews for Chaos and Creation in the Backyard were very strong and signified that after delivering Flaming Pie, Run Devil Run, Driving Rain and this album — all in uninterrupted succession — McCartney is in a late-career creative peak. Many critics and longtime listeners also acknowledged that the album was unusually reflective and intimate-sounding for McCartney. The sudden shift in direction was generally considered an unexpected and welcome surprise, and resulted in three Grammy nominations for the album, including the nomination for Album of the Year. The first single, the upbeat "Fine Line", was released in late August 2005, ahead of the release of Chaos and Creation in the Backyard, and reached #20 in the UK. A second single, "Jenny Wren", reached #22 in the UK that November. The album entered the UK charts at #10 and peaked at #6 in the US, McCartney's highest position there since Flaming Pie in 1997. McCartney has also said that the song Friends To Go is influenced by, and dedicated to George Harrison. The cover for Chaos and Creation in the Backyard is from a photograph of McCartney strumming a guitar in his family's back yard in Liverpool, taken by brother Mike McCartney (aka Mike McGear) and originally entitled Paul Under Washing, before being retitled Our Kid Through Mum's Net Curtains. The 'US' Tour in fall 2005 helped to promote the album in the States and Canada. There was also a promotional concert for the album held at Abbey Road Studios, called Chaos and Creation at Abbey Road.
