Here again we have an album that deserves a rating of 2.5 stars, but since Amazon doesn't make allowances for fractional scoring, we're forced to grade up. While one wishes McCartney's collaboration with Stevie Wonder on TUG OF WAR had produced something more substantial than "Ebony and Ivory," one regrets McCartney's teaming with Michael Jackson happened at all. Still, PIPES OF PEACE gets a pass for its majestic title track and the lovely "So Bad," which would shine even more brightly in a "live" reworking on 1984's GIVE MY REGARDS TO BROAD STREET soundtrack. The acoustic nicety "Sweetest Little Show" and album closer "Through Our Love" also rate as nice additions to the McCartney Songbook.

"Tug of war" was the second album in eigties signed by Paul McCartney - not Paul McCartney and Wings.this solo album became a great hit because of mixing modern-styled soul,rock and pop wit his typical post-beatles melodies.
shorty after releasing he album "pipes of peace" appeared...
What's the problem with this album?
it is well produced (george martin).it continues his way of pop-soul-rock era.Michael Jackson saved this album from forgetting with hit "Say say say" sung with Macca.
but sadly Even if the naive pop songs on "tug of war" sounded nice and interesting here they shine half less than of his previous album.
"So bad","Keep under cover","Through our love" are good songs but they all are lacking something...maybe some madness or freshness? (haha -"Average person" sound exactly like many songs from band called Madness...)
i don't really know what's wrong with it - i like this album and i love the title track but it is not enough - compared to "Back to the Egg","Flowers in the dirt" or "Press to play" it is a bit boring and pretentious.
in the end - a good album but it has much more weaker melodies than on any of his other albums.anyway you can check it out.

With McCartney in his 40's, his world conscience shows up in the title track, a sweet mid-paced affair which displays a universal message: "Help me learn the songs of joy instead of/burn baby burn/won't you show me how to play/the pipes of peace, play the pipes of peace." The marching rhythm complete with drum machine and choir adds a nice touch.
Like Stevie Wonder did on Tug Of War, Michael Jackson shows up for two songs here, and one of them became a big hit. "Say Say Say" is a more effective number than "The Girl Is Mine," featuring harmonica and a brass section and computerized voices. Things would not be so cozy between McCartney and Jackson, as the latter outbid McCartney for the rights to the Beatles songs. But that line, "baptised in all my tears" really caught my eye.
"The Other Me" is a mid-paced apology to a sig. other for really bad behaviour--"I acted like a dustbin" and asks for a second chance--"I wish I could take it back/I'd like to make a different mood/and if you let me try again/I'll have a better attitude." That's the other me he sings of.
Quick Vivaldi-type strings and quick guitar pop distinguish the chorus of "Keep Under Cover." There's some nice electric Wings-type guitar reminiscent of his early days. It's a promise to share life with someone despite the uncertain journey ahead, but without that special one, one might as well "keep under cover." Or play ostrich, in other words. And as DLR said, you know what happen to ostrich's hind ends.
OK, my favourite track here. "So Bad", later to be done live in Give My Regards To Broadstreet is a nice slow ballad with Paul and Linda singing together in the chorus.

hmmm....there are great tracs like "Keep under cover" or "Pipes of peace" but also a lot of material that should have been b-sides.too many bad songs to give it 4 stars but i give it 3 stars for Title track which is amazing.
