Has a reputation of being the best solo album by Paul (i.e. outside Wings). I don't quite agree
with that, but the album is overall rather good.
The pound is sinking - an excellent song (or rather songs, since it's one of those composites Paul is so fond of) with cool lyrics and a beautiful tune.
Somebody who cares - lovely acoustic ballad. One of those that Paul can do in his sleep. The guitar solo is excellent.
Here today - the poignant lyrics and the nice strings really make this song the John tribute.
Be what you see (Link) - a nice short link, which I like because of the vocoder.
Tug of war - I think this would have fit well together with "Pipes of Peace", had Paul decided to go with a double album. The lyrics of these two songs have similar themes. This song is nicely sung, and has a fun drum beat.
Take it away - one of the more rocking songs on the LP, this song has a nice video with Ringo, although (IIRC) he doesn't play on the recording. Some interesting lyrics on this one, too.
Ballroom dancing - another rock'n'roll song, but here the lyrics do not really convey anything. The big band interlude is cool.
Wanderlust - said by some to be Paul's best solo song. Another of those songs which has a counter melody. The sentiment is beautiful, although it doesn't sit well with me, for some reason.
Get it - a nice chugging song where it seems Paul and Carl really enjoyed themselves. The lyrics are a total waste of time, though.
Dress me up as a robber - not much in the way of lyrics here either. The Spanish guitar is great, and there are a couple of musical moments, but on the whole this song doesn't fully succeed.
Ebony and ivory - silly hit song that tries to convey a message of racial harmony (the message isn't silly, of course, just the comparison to keyboards). One of those melodies that are hard to get out of your head once you've heard the song.
What's that you're doing? - oh my, how boring this is. This song is even worse than the Jackson collaborations, and that says a lot. Nothing, absolutely nothing can save this.
