Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
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;

Side 1

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

Side 2

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.

The songs wasnt as good as I remember it from my younger days. But a nice cover and the sound was good. Not among the best Mc Cartney albums. But its ok.

Im not going to review the music as people have already done that .
This is a review of the box set .
Compared to the previous sets this is the disapointing one .
The two latest box set are now in a book form instead of a box with books in them .
Venus and Mars is a great set , but this is poor .
The extra music is about 21 minutes so could have gone onto the album cd as one disc .
The dvd is poor . Original promo for Silly Love Songs , and a short film of Wings setting up in Venice which is fine but Wings fans were waiting for the film of Wings over Wembley. The problem is the whole film is not here , only a excerpt . This is meant to be the definitive version , a box set ! So why not put in the full film ?
Its seems that for such a big album that Speed of Sound was they just could not be bothered with putting in any more music or video and so compared to the other sets this is not value for money . Shame.

Speed Of Sound is, a good album, with only one track really letting the side down: Cook Of The House being SoS's Yellow Submarine.At times it is a great album, with songs such as Let 'Em In, Silly Love Songs and the majestic, epic, Beware My Love up there with the best that McCartney ever wrote and performed. Wino Junko is the only other slightly naff song, but as a teenager is the Seventies I well remember whole albums of rubbish being released to back a hit single from other artists and that's one thing Paul could never be accused of in the 1970's (80's maybe, but we're getting off message).
SoS doesn't quite reach as high as Venus and Mars or the pinnacle of class that was Band On The Run, but when you consider these three were released within only three years of each other it's hard not to be impressed.
As far as the remastering is concerned, I've listened to this back to back with the 1993 remaster and there is a very obvious improvement, even to my ravaged hearing (The bells, the bells!). It's difficult to be specific, suffice to say that everything is clearer and crisper; you can now hear individual instruments, with much clearer separation. The 1993 now sounds quite muddy in cpmparison. Overall, then, a success and worth the money- I think this is the fourth time I've bought it: Vinyl, Original CD release, 1993 Remaster, 2014 Remaster- so that'll probably do it until they release the Holographic, Paul singing in your living room version.

A review of the 2cd/dvd Super Deluxe...

If you're a Wings or Macca fan, these recent SDE releases in the PM Archive Collection have been pretty decent outings, especially Ram and Wings Over America. Up until now at least. Gone is the linen bound book style presentation replaced with poorly manufactured product (including the discs themselves) from China. Now I'm all for free market/trade and all that sort of thing but this is obviously an exercise in extending your profit margin. Whether it's by Starbucks or MPL Communications, the results are very unimpressive and these two most recent additions to the archives are of such cheap quality I'm very concerned for the next instalment of the series. If they are as poorly made as Speed Of Sound and Venus and Mars, I won't be buying them which is such a shame because I really like this period of Paul McCartney's career. The music is four - five star albums, the presentation is a big fat zero for me.
