I guess I'm just not as discerning a critic as some because V&M is one of my favorite McCartney LPs. I think it's GREAT! IMO, all good/great music doesn't have to be "serious".
I have many fond memories of rocking out with my buddies (and some gals) cruising the strip and listening to V&M on 8-track during my teen years! Man, those were some good times!
The title track, Rock Show, Medicine Jar, the reprise, Magneto & Titanium Man, You Gave Me The Answer (the girls always liked this one), Letting Go, Spirits of Ancient Egypt, and Call Me Back Again are my personal faves with Medicine Jar being my most favorite track.
Man, I'm sorry some of you guys don't like the album. To each his own, I guess, but I know I have certainly derived many hours of pleasure from listening to this LP.
