One of the best albums of the 70s and arguably McCartney's best post beatles album.
The piano in Nineteen Hundred And Eighty-Five is one of my favourites and the bootleg the nashville sessions worth a listen just for the working version of the song.
Never understood why it wasn't a single at the time. 10/10

Never liked it that much to be honest, but the title track is classic.

Not even close to best Beatles solo album.

McCartney made some great songs...but he never made a great album. This was as close as he got.

As for best Beatles solo album...I'd probably rank it no higher than 4th or 5th.
