||The Toppermost of the Poppermost!|
This album, more than any other, has earned Macca a reputation for meticulously-crafted pop. Teaming up with Beatles producer George Martin, Paul returned from the home-grown experimentation of "McCartney II" to present the world with this unbelievably enjoyable collection of songs. As you so often read in reviews, the big hit from this album, Ebony and Ivory, is by far the weakest song on the disc (other than the throw-away What's That You're Doing). Don't think that I'm not a Stevie Wonder fan...love him. He just didn't really add anything to this work. If you want a great collaboration, how about the legendary Carl Perkins. Their track together, Get It, is classic Perkins, right up there with Blue Suede Shoes or Movie Magg. Standout tracks include Take It Away (ultra-cool, fern-bar groove), Here Today (Paul's tribute to the recently-assassinated John Lennon), and Ballroom Dancing (a cool 50's dance tune). There's not really a weak track on this album, and its one of those rare discs that you'll love the first time you hear it as well as the thousandth time. Next to Flaming Pie, this is my favorite Macca disc.

||What Paul does|
This is my favorite McCartney album .It does everything you expect from Paul . There are no fillers here .I always want this in my record collection . When this first came out . It was in heavy rotation with Prince ,Madonna & everyone else during that time frame . But to me it is better than alot of that....that was out at the time .

Sometimes, when you're working at something, you just have to step back and let it sit. After a decade of his work with Wings, he still made music, but this album sounds like he just laid back and made the stuff during a coffee break. It is so easy to listen to and like that you forget that Paul must have been going through a lot at the time (John Lennon's assassination and the breakup of Wings). But this whole album was so fun and bright and wonderful that you never get a chance to even think about what the artist must have been thinking when you listen to it. It is that nostalgic, and that good. Sir Paul did anything and everything on this record, and it sounds great even today. I don't think that Paul could have made a better album than this one. Forget about "Band on the Run" or "Flaming Pie". "Tug of War" beats all of them with sheer musical muscle and easy listenability. This is the definitive Paul McCartney record. If you liked him with the Beatles, you'll like him on this record.
