This has always and still stands as one of my favorite albums. Paul has proven on this outing why I have long considered him a musical genius. Unlike some of his other works, it has a strong sense of continuity and style that flows from track to track. With the exception of "What's That You're Doing," I love every single thing about Tug of War. This is definitely one of his most emotional efforts, probably because it was released after John's unfortunate cessation. Very nice, short, simple tribute to Lennon that doesn't have him going over the top like all the critics wanted him too. Lovely anti-war anthem in the title track. My favorite of all his songs is on here: "Take It Away" is a beautiful jazz masterpiece with some of Paul's best lyrics. "Somebody Who Cares" is a song that always makes me feel better when I'm down. That soft "I know how you feel" always gets to me. "Ballroom Dancing," "The Pound is Sinking" and "Get It" are all diverse excercises in Paul's impressive talent and lots of fun too. "Dress Me Up as a Robber" is another cool jazzy ditty a la "Take it Away" with an excellent, brief guitar solo. It closes out with the other Wonder duet, "Ebony and Ivory," which seems to be a continuation of the opening album's title track and seals the deal as an entire tidy package. I recommend this disk highly, even if you already have collections like Wingspan, because TOW is in a class by itself. You may also find yourself singing along with most of the songs.
