Technically, it was Paul and Linda McCartney, since this album was very much a collaboration between them. Some of the material was of the standard we expected ("Monkberry Moon Delight," "The Backseat of My Car," "Uncle Albert/AdmiralHalsey"), but somehow it all seemed entirely too whimsical, as if they'd spent a bit too long isolated on the farm. It was the expectations that were the problem, of course. Paul was simply making a lighthearted album, and we wanted earth-shaking pronouncements. Take Ram on its own terms (i.e., fun), and it's throughly enjoyable. --Chris Nickson

I find it funny but nice that people are discovering this album for the first time in recent years. I wore this album out back in 1971, when I was 11. It is my favorite Paul McCartney album. It has his best hit single - "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey." I remember driving to California from Texas with my parents and this song came on the Western radio stations long before it reached Dallas. We heard it constantly on the radio. "Dear Boy" on the album precedes "Uncle Albert" and it is a perfect segway. If you like RAM, I think you will also like "Red Rose Speedway." RAM is a must for any Beatles/McCartney fan.

It's a must have. It has passed very well the test of time and I only wish I could write songs like that...
I owned (and own) the LP, and was furiously searching it in CD for some years (I know it's ready available now...), but HOW I SEARCHED FOR THAT ELUSIVE CD!.
Mc Cartney's second solo album is sligthly better then the first ("Mc Cartney" wich is also a MUST HAVE) and contains such imperishable songs as "Dear Boy", but what is more, in a relaxed way the output was above par and Paul sounds at his happiest and easylistening...
ONE OF MY FAVORITES FROM ALL TIME... GET IT FOR YOUR COLLECTION.

Honestly, sometimes I despair at the elitist critics who go on about how great 'good, honest, rock'n'roll' is, and then at the same time extoll angst, alienation and seriousness as essential to the music. Not that 'serious', tormented songs aren't good- often they can be quite powerful, but originally rock'n'roll was fun, not meaningful. Paul McCartney got a lot of stick from critics for releasing an album that was silly and fun- complete anathema to them. It was, and is, also musically brilliant pop music. The chord-changes, song sections, and hooks are vintage McCartney, although "The Back Seat of My Car" is a successful copping of the Brian Wilson style of composition. (McCartney was and is a huge fan of "Pet Sounds") The reason why this isn't quite as good as the best Beatles albums isn't that these songs are of significantly lower quality than the songs he did for the White Album and Abbey Road. In fact, these songs remind me a lot of those songs. And they aren't really more slapdash, silly or whimsical than a lot of his late Beatles songs. Imagine, though, putting together all the McCartney songs on the White Album, and a couple from Abbey Road, together on one album, and you'll get an album sounding a lot like this one. Great, yet missing the Lennon and Harrison songs to balance them out.
The silliness, like the voices on "Uncle Albert", was like a red flag to critics. It seemed like he was having too much fun putting together this album, not sweating over it like a genius determined to put out a masterpiece or nothing at all.
Many criticise Linda McCartney's singing. I find it's mostly quite good- better than Yoko's- although her singing IS annoyingly whiny in places on "Long Haired Lady".
Love that ukelele on 'Ram On'!

This LP is simply stated...incredible. The remastering crew deserve top honors. I first purchased this back in the 70's and loved it then. Still my favorite PM album and probably a desert island top 10 pick. If you are getting back into vinyl, this should be a must have. Of the 15 LP's I've recently purchased, this stands head and tails above all the rest for dynamics and detail.

By BeatleBangs1964 TOP 500 REVIEWER on May 13 2015
Format: Audio CD
Writing great songs is child's play for Paul McCartney. This is one of my favorite collections and it is a timeless classic. I just LOVE it! I thought my old LP was good, but the remastered CD is just heaven for the hearing! As others on the U.S. board noted, it just doesn't get any better than Paul! I've been a Paul fan and a Beatle fan since I was fender high to a Ford Falcon and that isn't going to change.

Paul and Tony Bennett are to music what Audrey Hepburn was to acting. You get grace, class and talent. What better combination can you find that that? Gentle melodies; some intense guitar work and a mellifluous voice - now you KNOW it just doesn't get any better than that! i JUST love the "Ram" collection! You also get some Paul humor along with the excellent songs. "Ram On" is a spoof on "Ramon," a stage name Paul used during the 1960 - 1961 pre-Beatle days in Hamburg, Germany.

The caliber of the song collection won't disappoint either. "Long Haired Lady" is just beautiful. So is "Dear Boy" and "Heart of the Country." I love every single song on this collection and "Too Many People" remains a favorite of mine to this very day. Paul McCartney is, as I've said countless times a nonpareil performer and he has a seemingly limitless supply of talent. I've had the good fortune to see Paul in concert 3 times and rest assured, he sounds just as good as ever!

Yes, for Paul song writing is child's play and we are lucky he has such a facility for music. His beautiful songs range from the simplistic to the complex, each a stellar gem of talent in their own individual way.

As another U.S. reviewer noted, I, too love the 1971 John Lennon classic "Imagine," but that album/CD alone does not reflect the melodic fluidity nor the versatility of "Ram." Paul McCartney was and remains an incredibly versatile performer and that continues to come through in all of his recordings.
