Wild Life
« on: September 11, 2005, 03:51:12 PM »

What a bizarre little homemade album this is. I admit putting off adding it to the collection because the consensus was alway that this was pretty bad. Its got its moments, but its a Macca product like none other. Probably won't be played much. I do like 'Dear Friend' quite a bit.

God, this HAS to be Pall McCartney's (Wings') worst LP ever - I have only ever played once!

Al, we went over this before,,,,,(McCartney 2).

I throw in 'Wild Life' every now and then as theres a few good tunes. 'Tomorrow', 'Dear Friend', 'Some People Never Know', and of course 'Give Ireland Back To The Irish' (yeah, I have the import with the bonus tracks). Overall,,,,yeah, its pretty bad, but I can tolerate it.

I got the import with the bonus tracks too. Maybe it just needs to sink in a bit.

McCartney II isn't great but it's better than GMRTBS & Press To Play.

'Give My Regards To Broad Street' is great and 'Press to Play' has its good moments.

Exactly! If you want to try to hit upon Pauls second worst album, give 'Pipes Of Peace' a spin. Afterwards, tell me how great 'The Man' is. At least 'So Bad' came from it.

Here's a review of 'Pipes' from Amazon that amuses me.

I am writing this review nearly 20 years after purchasing this insipid album of Paul's. I threw it away years ago when I was moving, and I still feel a flush in my face when I think that I actually spent over 10 hard earned dollars to purchase my final vinyl from McCartney. Listening to a song about a lion tamer made me cringe at the time, and I still hope I run into Paul someday so I can shake him down for a refund (adusted for inflation of course). If this album were a flavor, it would be vanilla with salmonella; what isn't bland, makes you feel sick to your stomach. Don't buy this unless you the kind of fanatical McCartney collector who would buy the liner notes to his tax forms.

Unfortunately, I lean towards the last sentence of the review.

You expect a certain level from your heroes, but 'Pipes of Peace' is as refreshing as taking a big swig from a Dr. Pepper can and getting a mouthful of toenail clippings.
