The Paul McCartney Albums Survivor Thread
« on: June 17, 2004, 03:03:57 PM »

Simple, vote for one of the following, then I'll come in and tally the votes after each day or so until the final survivor is left. Band on the Run was not included, so it's really any album's game...

McCartney
Ram
Wild Life
Red Rose Speedway
Venus and Mars
Wings at the Speed of Sound
London Town
Back to the Egg
McCartney II
Tug of War
Pipes of Peace
Give My Regards to Broad Street
Press to Play
Flowers in the Dirt
CHOBA B CCCP
Off the Ground
Flaming Pie
Run Devil Run
Driving Rain

I'll start by voting for Give My Regards to Broad Street, mostly due to the needless remakes of classic Beatles songs.

It leaves, just like on the television series.

So were basically voting for the worst of the bunch each day.  OK.  Whew, tall order.
Lot of garbage in there. 

Wild Life, without a doubt.  Worst album possibly -ever- made by anyone.  :)

So you're assuming that BOTR is so good it could never be anyone's worst album of the day? There are at least two albums there that wipe the floor with BOTR.

If you're going to ask people for their prefs, don't remove an option - it looks (and IS!) patronizing.

I agree Maria, BOTR shouldn't have been removed to respect other people tastes.
But seriously BOTR will win this survivor easily if it's there imo, at least that's my favorite Paul/Wings album

Thanks for the back-up, Bruno. But for me (and for many others, I know) BOTR has not worn well over time. For me, Macca's "timeless" work is Ram (although I do admit there's a couple of not-so-good ones on that album even). On Ram, Paul took risks and pulled it off well.

Back to the Egg
McCartney II

As for me, you can kill any of these:

Off The Ground, Flaming Pie, Press to Play, Red Rose Speedway, Pipes of Peace, Tug of War, McCartney II and London Town, since I have never bothered listening to any of them (with the exception of Pie and the occasional single pulled from each).  None of these were deemed worth spending the time on, IMHO.

Sorry, pal.  What can I say?  Paul produced so much trash there was no real reason to listen after awhile (Oddly enough I do own Pipes (2 copies) and Tug...just never really felt compelled to spin them).

OK, so I have drain bamage.

Hey, we all have our favorites.

I actually did listen to Flaming Pie, and found it wanting.  Of course, had I listened to it more than once I might have found it ok, it just didn't grab me (like, for instance, My Brave Face did, leading me further into the Flowers in the Dirt LP). 

I know Tug of War is said to be good by most people I know, I only heard the singles, they were ok.

Off the Ground, Biker Likean Icon was pretty good, toherwise...

LOL! One of my least favorites. I love it that people have contrasting tastes in music. It would be a boring world if we didnt I suppose.

So, that's one vote for McCartney II, one from me for Give My Regards and CHOBA....and Mister Charlie voted for about everything in Paul's catalouge......I guess we'll just delete the first three I mentioned.....get votin' people! What the hey, vote for THREE this time.

McCartney
Ram
Red Rose Speedway
Band on the Run
Venus and Mars
Wings at the Speed of Sound
London Town
Back to the Egg
Tug of War
Pipes of Peace
Press to Play
Flowers in the Dirt
Off the Ground
Flaming Pie
Run Devil Run
Driving Rain

Red Rose Speedway had a lot of filler....so did Wings at the Speed of Sound....I'll give my third vote to Press to Play, although there's some other stuff from around the same time that's equally bad.
