Editorial Reviews

Mojo - Mat Snow
A peak in Macca’s solo rollercoaster career.

Paul’s first album following John’s murder was also the first after Denny Laine’s resignation formally ended Wings. Stevie Wonder came on board for a few weeks, yielding the global smash "Ebony And Ivory" as well as the joyously funky "What’s That You’re Doing." Craving a more permanent foil, Paul picked former Mindbender and 10cc hit-smith Eric Stewart. For a while, the pair were on a songwriting roll, the cream pouring into 1982’s Tug Of War, produced by George Martin and a commercial and critical smash. Turning 40, Paul basked in his craftsmanship and love of variety, embracing light entertainment ("Ballroom Dancing") as well as the touching tribute to the unnamed John, "Here Today" - amid Paul’s usual word-spinning, a lyric with heart. A genuine bonus, the second CD’s half-hour of demos and discards is a repeat-play joy. Mat Snow, MOJO Magazine
