(...) It's a standard McCartney pop album that deserves alot more credit than it gets. Critics really do expect the impossible from McCartney. This CD really has some very good pop rock on it. I've been a Macca fan for along time and you've got to learn to expect the unexpected from him, his musical styles change majorly from album to album. But keep in mind this is no Band on the Run, there are some not so good songs on here....
OFF THE GROUND- A good strong pop rock mid tempo opener. It's got a good catchy melody and a real airy "off the ground" feel to it. It also has a mean electric guitar.
LOOKING FOR CHANGES- A song McCartney sings about animal rights. Another rocker with hot electric guitar, a good solid riff that'll hook you to it... if you can get used to the lyrics.
HOPE OF DELIVERENCE- This was a huge commercial hit, which i personally do not care for. It has a cool steel guitar solo though its largely an acoustic song.
MISTRESS AND MAID- Here we come to the first really bad song. He co wrote it with MacManus.... just go ahead and skip over it.
I OWE IT ALL TO YOU- A very nice ballad type song. It's definantly worth a listen.
BIKER LIKE AN ICON- LOL! What were you smokin when you wrote this one McCartney? A good funny novelty piece with a catchy bass line but the lyrics are just........INSANE!!!
PEACE IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD- A good groovy boogy song. Definantly happy and upbeat. Don't skip over it.
GOLDEN EARTH GIRL-One of Paul's most over looked ballads. Its got a very nice piano accomp. though the lyrics are k i nd o f w e i r d.?(Eggshell fish in a sunbeam)!@?
THE LOVERS THAT NEVER WERE- Sounds like this one could be in a movie, listen to it.
GET OUT OF MY WAY- Oh yah!! McCartney at his rock n' roll best, screamin' out "get out of my way, get out of my life, i don't need anybody but my woman tonight" classic 50's rock. Sweet.
WINEDARK OPEN SEA-Another McCartney love song. Gotta be get tired of them but you should still listen to it, its a good one.
C'MON PEOPLE- Very John Lennon style. Definantly not my favorite on the CD but no less a good closing song.
Remember that these are just my personal opinions on this album. And I'm saying you should definantly give it a listen.. it measures up to be just as good as Flaming Pie. To bad it's out of print in the US.
