Contrary to popular belief, Paul was the rock musician in Beatles, even if John was more of a rocker in attitude. He wrote Sgt. Pepper's, Helter Skelter, Lady Madonna, Back in the USSR, to mention a few. Knowing that, the sound and feel of Back to the Egg shouldn't be so surprising. Because this is hard, heavy and fat rock 'n roll. One might get decieved by the sheer pop of Getting Closer, but the brutal riffs and vocal of Spin It On soon takes you into a somewhat harder and darker terrain.
The laid-back softness of London Town are completely absent, and even in the ballads, you can sense an edge of rusty metal in Paul's voice.
Wings showed a lot of strength with this recording, but it was a far cry from the sales it deserved. As of now, it stands out like a gem in the Wings-catalogue, perhaps even surpassing the classic Band on the Run.

This is one of the best Paul McCartney and Wings albums which brings new energy, sound and originality. It does not deserve the criticism it was subjected to by some reviewers.
"I Am Getting Closer", "Spin It On" and "Rochestra Theme" are truely original rock-n-roll tracks. "We're Open Tonight", "Winter Rose" and "Baby's Request" are beautiful ballads. Paul McCartney demonstrates here again what a superb song-writer he is.
In my opinion, his best songs in the post-Beatles era in terms of originality of the sound and melody, were written when he was a part of Wings (except "Tug of War" and "Pipes of Peace").

I don't want to reiterate what other reviewers have already said but I thought I would mention that this has always been my favourite McCartney/Wings album.
I well remember buying this at 'Woolies' in Carlisle in the Summer of 1981 in one of their bargain bins for the princely sum of 99p (only 12/13 & I had just enough pennies!) & I still listen to this album on a regular basis (although I bought a CD version in '91).I've always said that if you can still listen to & enjoy an album many years down the line then there must be something good about it...as already discussed by the other reviewers.
So,give it a chance & (hopefully) you'll like it as well.

I've owned this album from 1980 when, like one of the other reviewers here, I picked it up in the bargain bin at Woolies for 99p, what a briliant musical bargain that was! For some strange reason this album did not sell well at the time and has always been derried by critics. Very strange, as this is possibly McCartneys best solo effert apart from Band on the Run and Flaming Pie.

All the songs are fantastic and Macca is really going for the rock vibe on so many of these excellent tracks, Rockestra Theme, Spin it On, So Glad To See You Here with Macca shreading his vocals totally on some tracks, quite a stunning record. The ballads are truly beatuiful with Winter Rose/Love Awake being one of my all time favourite McCartney love songs. I really can't understand just why this album is passed over quite so much, it's a real gem. I've been listening to it for over 30 years now and it still sounds fresh and invigorating as a rock and soft pop album all rolled into one.

Such a shame Macca didn't take the whole heavier sound of Wings one step further as it would have been fascinating to see what would have happened on the next Wings album, had one happened. Still we had the experimental and interesitng McCartney II, so at least the guy was trying to stir thing up a bit. And allthough I'm also a John Lennon fan I do believe this myth that Lennon was the rocker and McCartney the balladeer, is vaastly over used. McCartney can really rock it out when he wants to as proved by this album and for me Back to the Edge was far more experimental and modern than Double Fantasy.

Buy it, you won't be dissapointed, definately a 5 star McCartney and Wings album, one of their best ever and sadly also their last ever.

I have never understood why Back to Egg is the most derided album of Macca's career. (Press To Play deserves that particular accolade in my opinion.) BTTE is miles better than the two albums either side of it (London Town and McCartney II), both of which have some downright whimsical dreck on them: the London Town title track itself and Bogey Music anyone? Listening to this album brings back memories of the summer of 1983 - when I was 10 - nicking my dad's original '79 audiocassette copy of it and playing it to death on my little Hitachi tape recorder.

Yes, it's not McCartney's best set by any means: there isn't a monster hit in sight and it doesn't match the consistent excellence of sets like Band On the Run or Tug of War. The energy of the first side dissipates on tracks like After the Ball and Million Miles. Yet a good three-quarters of the album is original, experimental and eclectic. There's the Stevie Wonder funk of Arrow Through Me, the punk of Spin It On, Old Siam Sir, (and also the misfire that is To You), the Cole Porter-esque Baby's Request and then Wings' answer to Mother Nature's Son: Love Awake. I particularly love the literary, ambient weirdness of The Broadcast and the way it immediately precedes (and contrasts with) the down to earth 'balls-to-the-wall' rock out that is So Glad To See You Here with it's reprise of We're Open Tonight from the first side. And the peaks are not confined to Macca himself. Denny Laine chalks up his best Wings song (imo) with the bright and breezy Again and Again.

McCartney should have done another album with this line-up. McCartney II was a fairly lame follow-up despite its success. Sadly the Japanese drug bust, McCartney's own indifference and Lennon's murder put paid to that.
