This √°lbum has its mertits, but overall It shows how The Wings were dying as a project at the time, they would soon split-up.

I'm a Macca Fan however; this is his weakest Wings album.

A good solid album more cohesive than London Town. Old Siam Sir, Getting Closer, Arrow Thru Me, Spin It On, To You & Rockestra are all good songs but I especially like the last few tracks After The Ball...... Love Awake. Underrated and on top of that it was Wings final album.

Good album!! Some of the songs are great (Getting closer, Arrow through me) some weaker, but still not an average album just a bit inconsistent.

Kind of a clunker. Arrow Through Me is a classic, but geez, After the Ball and Spin It On have got to be two of the worst songs Paul ever wrote...

Great album that is overlooked. Getting Closer, Arrow Through me, Old Siam Sir are my 3 favorites on the album. This was the end of Wings sadly. Who knows they just might have been as great in the 80's as they were in the 70's.
