Format: Audio CD
1989's "Flowers In The Dirt" was seen as a hard act to follow, given the widespread critical acclaim and the "return to form" label that accompanied it. Critically, "Off The Ground", recorded with Paul's then current touring band (with the exception of drummer Chris Whitten, who was offered a job touring with Dire Straits and was replaced by Blair Cunningham), didn't quite match up to its predecessor. However, it was the first McCartney studio album I bought on the day of release and I happen to think it's much better than it was originally received back in 1993. In fact, I think it's almost entirely excellent and one of Paul's most underrated pieces of work. I loved it at the age of eighteen and now, twenty years later, at thirty-eight, I still love it just as much.

My first encounter with the "Off The Ground" material was hearing "Hope Of Deliverance" on the radio on a cold winter morning in 1992, as I got myself ready for college. The first time I heard it, I wasn't overly sure whether I liked it or not. It sounded a bit almost religious and "happy-clappy" to my seventeen year old ears. I reserved judgement. However, the second time I heard it, it stayed in my head for a ridiculously long time and I was singing the hook for days afterwards. Fast forward a few months and I was in HMV in Birmingham when the in-store DJ announced he had a sneak preview of the Paul McCartney album which was being released the next week. He then proceeded to play the breezy "Peace In The Neighbourhood", which had a great, wandering bass-line, a lovely message and lots of gorgeous jazzy chords which completely blew me away. I was almost salivating when on Monday 2nd February, 1993, I went into HMV in Coventry, bought myself a copy and rushed home to play it. I wasn't disappointed.

This is a really unique album which shows some of Mackas feelings towards contriversial subjects like animal testing, 'Lookin For Changes' is a nice rocking tune putting forward that he feels animals should not be tested and portraying the people who do as senseless, i don't believe in animal testing either so it really appealed to me but regardless ita rocking tune! 'Peace in the Neighbourhood' is a really calm and soft meningfull tune. 'Hope of Deliverance' a nice swinging tune. 'Off the Ground' catchy rocking song.

All in all, a good buy for your money, it is well worth it, wouldn't be the same if you didn't add it to your McCartney collection!

Riding on the back of a massively successful world tour and just before going off on another one, this feels like an album that was churned off too quickly.
This was the first album from which McCartney didn't have a single hit, and you can see why. The potential singles, like "Looking for Changes" aren't quite up to it, for all their hard hitting lyrics.
But it isn't all disastrous. "Golden Earth Girl" is an exquisite song, with lovely instrumentation from Carl Davis, and "I Owe It All To You" and "Peace in the Neighbourhood" would stand up well on any McCartney album.
The closer, "C'mon People" produced by George Martin hints at the appropriate epicness but doesn't quite achieve it.
If you are a fan, there will be enough to please you, but tracks like "Biker Like an Icon" just make you cringe. Definitely one of his lesser albums.

This album suffers compared to 'Flowers' in the same way 'Pipes of Peace' suffers in comparison to 'Tug of War'. Similar production, similar band but somehow the songs don't hit the mark enough to justify a 4 let alone 5 star rating:
Off The Ground There have been worse openers but this is pretty mediocre if we're honest 6/10
Looking For Changes Tiresome song,somewhat saved by a semi-interesting lyric 5/10
Hope of Deliverance Decent pop number and an obvious single, though not exactly top drawer 8/10
Mistress And Maid about the best song here,moving lyric and an interesting melody 9/10
Biker Like An Icon Contender for Paul's worst song ever. Abysmal lyric 1/10
I Owe It All To You Likeable if predictable 7/10
Peace in The Neighbourhood Nice song,nice feel 7.5/10
Golden Earth Girl Good ballad,almost a classic 8.5/10
The Lovers That Never Were The Costello factor once again as on Mistress adds bite to the lyric. Good song 7.5/10
Get Out Of My Way Good rocker, carrying some punch unlike say Angry (1986) or Glad To See You Here (1979).7/10
Wine Dark Open Sea Best song here...marvellous 9/10
Come On People George Martin said 'super song Paul' about this.No, I am afraid, it is pretty dull to be frank 5/10
Cosmically Conscious Too short but I like the melody 7/10

So 3 stars overall, perhaps 3.5 but seeing as half stars are'nt allowed I will round this one down to three. Which contrary to what you may think on Amazon doesn't mean a complete disaster! Some gems here as on all McCartney releases.

This album is, in my opinion, one of Paul McCartney's finest and perfectly showcases his incredible songwriting ability. "Looking for changes" is a hard hitting song dealing with animal experimentation and there are other songs dealing with social issues. The album has its lighter moments too and there are some beautiful romantic songs on it. My favourite songs are "Hope of Deliverance" (uplifting and optimistic), "I owe it all to you", "Golden Earth Girl", "The lovers that never were" and "Winedark open sea" (four sweet, sincere love songs written in McCartney's inimitable way). There is something for everyone here and anyone who enjoys melodic pop songs with meaningful lyrics will enjoy this album.
