Customer Review

on 27 July 2011
Ram is Macca's best solo album but this first Wings is my favourite. This is lo-fi, rudimentary music. No time or room for superflous or syrupy strings here - there is some sympathetic orchestration on Dear Friend. Some deplore the lack of lyrics on Mumbo. I love it. I call it raw rock'n'roll that doesn't need too much fancy-pants analysis. Turn it up very loud and feel the speakers pulsate. Love is Strange is too short at six minutes. Wildlife the song features an astonishing vocal from McCartney. Some People Never Know opens side two of the original album and is one of his best and most affecting acoustic numbers. I Am Your Singer would have graced the McCartney album. McCartney is sometimes inclined to over-produce, or allows his albums to be over-produced. This is not the case here. Wings got bigger, they may have got better: they rocked harder elsewhere. But this is their warmest and most honest record. It probably needs one more hard rock'n'roll number but what the hell. Go spend a month in a shack in the woods and take this with you.
