I don't know why people are saying this is a bad album...
on 15 October 2015
Quite saddened to see many people have said this album is of poor quality just because of the mixing and not for the musical content. I found with Venus and Mars the album was mainly Paul McCartney singing all the songs except for the two Denny Laine and Jimmy McColloch sung, but with At the Speed of Sound, the album feels like a band is providing the music not a solo singer with a backing group.
I'll be reviewing the remastered Vinyl album.
Track listing is as follows;
1. Let 'Em In - A fairly long song, bit of a foot-tapper. Good start to an album. - 5:10
2. You Note You Never Wrote - Song written and sung by Denny Laine, this track is my favourite on the album. - 4:19
3. She's My Baby - A love song written by Paul directed towards Linda, lyrics are quite silly but still not a bad song. - 3:09
4. Beware My Love - The masterpiece of the album. Lovely production and arrangements on this track. - 6:27
5. Wino-Junko - The only song Jimmy McCulloch sings on the album, he co-wrote it with Colin Allen. - 5:19
1. Silly Love Songs - Great song to kick off Side 2. Paul McCartney shows his high skill as a bass player on this track very well. - 5:53
2. Cook of the House - The weakest song on the album. Linda McCartney wrote and sings on this track. 1950s style blues song. - 2:37
3. Time to Hide - Another song written and sung by Denny Laine. - 4:32
4. Must Do Something About It - Joe English sings this song written by Paul McCartney. Not keen on the start by it picks up, - 3:42
5. San Ferry Anne - A short by sweet song sung by Paul McCartney. - 2:07
6. Warm and Beautiful - The last song on the album is another love song by Paul McCartney directed to Linda. - 3:12
As I stated at the start I prefer this album to Venus and Mars because it feels as if the whole band is contributing to the album and not just Paul McCartney. I give the album and remixing four starts because although I love the album, it's not a masterpiece. Thanks for taking the time to read my review on the 2014 vinyl remaster of At the Speed of Song by Wings.
