Enjoyable pop music

This is really the Paul and Linda show, singing together of their lives and loves, and obviously having a great time doing it too. And it is this very fact that makes this a good album, but it lacks that extra something to make it a great album (my personal favourite is "Red Rose Speedway", though I think "Band on the Run" is his best).

But it is fun music, especially "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey", and taken as such it is very enjoyable.

About this topic

Wiki

Technically, it was Paul and Linda McCartney, since this album was very much a collaboration between them. Some of the material was of the standard we expected ("Monkberry Moon Delight," "The Backseat of My Car," "Uncle Albert/AdmiralHalsey"), but somehow it all seemed entirely too whimsical, as if they'd spent a bit too long isolated on the farm. It was the expectations that were the problem, of course. Paul was simply making a lighthearted album, and we wanted earth-shaking pronouncements. TakeRamon its own terms (i.e., fun), and it's throughly enjoyable.--Chris Nickson
