4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and Under-rated, 24 Jun. 2002
This review is from: Wings At The Speed Of Sound (Audio CD)
Rarely mentioned as one of the better Wings albums, this sold more copies than any apart from "Band On The Run", and it's not hard to see why. Certainly, these tracks have aged better than much of the group's back catalogue.
All five members of the 1976 version of the band perform lead vocals on the album. The two Denny Laine vocals, on the brooding "The Note You Never Wrote" and the bluesy "Time To Hide" are an unexpected highlight. Less impressive is Joe English's mundane "Must Do Something About It", pure filler, although, strangely, I quite enjoy Linda's quirky "Cook Of The House".
Of the Paul vocals, the two singles are so familiar they need no comment and "She's My Baby" and "San Ferry Anne" are pleasant enough toe-tappers. The two stand-out tracks on the album are the awesome six-minute epic "Beware My Love" and the heart-tugging closing ballad "Warm And Beautiful", which would be amongst the very best ballads the great man has ever written but for the awful (but thankfully brief) instrumental break.
Well worth a listen... and if you're a McCartney fan, why don't you have this already?!
