Customer Review

on 12 July 2008
This is my favourite solo/Wings offering from Paul McCartney. Also, two songs on here are co-written and sung as a duet with Elvis Costello, who also recorded his own solo version of a track off this album called That Day Is Done. Through this album, I discovered Elvis Costello's music, for which I am very grateful.

Although I have been into Macca for 20 years now, this is one of the few albums he has done where there is not one single bad song or one I'd have to skip over. Of course, some tracks are stronger/weaker than others but that's par for the course.

The two songs he duets on with Elvis Costello are especially poignant and brilliant. It is like Lennon/McCartney mark two, because Elvis has a very sharp, ascerbic, sarcastic intelligence and wit meaning he came back with some excellent lines and these 2 songs; My Brave Face and You Want Her Too are musical mastership at their best.

Chico Mendes was the inspiration behind How Many People, a funky foray into reggae; a brave mood for a middle aged white man written off by many as a soppy balladeer.

Motor Of Love is a wonderful 80s power ballad and even though it is, the song is brilliant.

My favourite Paul McCartney song of all time, The Loveliest Thing, is the last song on this album and it is well worth a listen.

Other highlights are This One and Figure Of Eight which were popular singles back in the day!!
