I grew up a Beatles fan, always thought he was the "Pop"...aside Lennon's "BOOM"....keeping that in mind, I always liked, "Ram"

~ Ram ~ not a bad song on there, flows from song to song, almost like one long song.

~ Venus and Mars ~ played this one over and over when it came out. Rock Show is a great tune.

I agree

Tug of War, and Pipes of Peace from the 80s are good ones -- like you said they all are

I don't tend to agree. I feel that John Lennon's solo career could have been better. JOHN LENNON PLASTIC ONO BAND and IMAGINE are great albums. However ROCK AND ROLL, WALLS AND BRIDGES, MIND GAMES, and SOMETIME IN NEW YORK CITY were rather lackluster. They all do have their moments, but I feel that Lennon could have done better.

My favorite Paul McCartney LPs:

BAND ON THE RUN
WINGS AT THE SPEED OF SOUND
TUG OF WAR
TRIPPING THE LIVE FANTASTIC
VENUS AND MARS
RAM

its hard to judge lennons career because he seemed to be trying to make non commercial albums on purpose

Disagree. His music came from the heart, just like Sir Paul's interpretations did/do. He wasn't interested in "hits", he was into emotion and getting what he felt on tape. Maybe that is why I miss him so much...He just didn't give a sh*t if you cared.

yeah thats what i mean. mccartney always seemed to have 4-5 tunes on an album that seemed written just to be a single. lennon never did that. who else would pick "women is the nigger of the world" as a single. he cared about the art and didn't try to write radio singles

I agree

Tug of War, and Pipes of Peace from the 80s are good ones -- like you said they all are


PIPES OF PEACE?!?!? Are you kidding me?

I can't recall anyone else (even on a McCartney message board) ever claiming that one as "good"...much less "so-so" or even "listenable". Good on you that you like it, though.

For me that one is at the bottom of the sludge in a portapotty, with McCartney II right above it.

My faves are:


Everything from McCartney to Venus & Mars, Back To The Egg, Tug Of War and then every album since (and including) Press To Play

lets not knock mccartney II. i think its a great album. very weird. its one of the few times mccartney seemed to do something weird on purpose for one of his mainstream solo albums. he has some weird albums but those are normally not promoted by mccartney and for hardcore fans. i agree pipes of peace is not very good. mccartney had some questionable releases in the late 70's, mid 80's and early 90's for sure

No coincidence that Flaming Pie was one of Paul's strongest discs.
That was mostly written during Linda's illness and after her death..
Alot of emotion pouring out for sure.

I don't have it but have heard the same thing about Chaos & Creation In The Backyard -- Driving Rain I like too -- Paul has done some really good things in recent years -- his ode to John on McCartney II is moving ("Here Today" I think) --

different strokes for different folks -- I like Pipes of Peace & like it even better that most people don't (had never known that) -- what is it that you find so **** ty about it anyhow, when you like everything else he ever did??

Wildlife is one of his I don't know/could do without -- London Town too (With a Little Luck, am no fan of that -- what about Cook of the House too, from that album -- that's a little much for me

Paul is still in a class of his own. Wheather we like the tunes or not. He's the man ! But that aside , McCartney , Ram , Flowers in the dirt are my favorites. I think all of his records stand on thier own. They are what they are to use a cliche.
