Apart from "Ebony And Ivory" I'd find it difficult to skip anything on "Tug Of War", Paul's best solo album in my opinion. "Dress Me Up As A Robber" is the second best song on the album for me (only bettered by the truly superb "Take It Away"). "Somebody Who Cares", "Ballroom Dancing" and "The Pound Is Sinking" are my other favourites.
I've always felt "Wanderlust" has a very "Back To The Egg" feel to it. Always reminds me of "Winter Rose/Love Awake".
It is a very good album and yes has claims to being his best. It has a great balance between rockier songs, medium paced tunes and ballads. And aside from E&I there's no complete clunkers. Dress Me Up just isn't my thing. It sounds like some disco/Latin pop pastiche. What's That You're Doing is no way as bad as E&I. But it also doesn't grab me.
The rest ranges from good to excellent .
Wanderlust is basically a good power ballad but I find the quodlibet (thanks to HG I know what to call it now
) elevates it.
And Here Today is a touching ballad that Paul does so well.
The album benefits from having George Martin producing. Again showing Paul is at his best with a strong collaborator or producer.
