It's ok.
My love and Single pigeon are the best songs IMO.

'Big Barn Bed' and 'My Love' best here I surprisingly like (Indian on the moon) the rest is nothing more than OK, sorry.

Red rose speedway, is one of Paul McCartney's most underrated records. It contains some great tracks, the best being the beautiful, my love, one of McCartney's greatest solo tracks(alright, it's technically Paul McCartney and wings, but you know what I mean), and, little lamb dragonfly, is one of his most overlooked songs, it's brilliant. Elsewhere, there's the bluesy opener, big barn bed, the soul of, when the night, the sweet, one more kiss, and the experimental, Loup. The thing most criticized on the album is the medley that closes the record, alright it's not the second side of, Abbey road, but it's still enjoyable enough. Red rose speedway, would obviously be surpassed by it's follow up, band on the run, but it's still a very good LP.

A mess, but such an enjoyable mess. Has some of my favorite songs of McCartney's post-Beatles career.

Recommend: Big Barn Bed, Get on the Right Thing, Little Lamb Dragonfly, Single Pigeon

Actually a very fun, laid back album. My Love, Get on the Right Thing, and the medley are great.

I loved this album back in '73 its full of good pop songs and the beautiful "My Love". Best track is the closing Medley a must for all Paul McCartney fans.

Just as good as the medley on "Abbey Road"? I don't think so. That said, it's a cool little album to relax by, and float along with, like a bubble. Sort of an appetizer before the great "Band on the run" (the same year, incredibly, with the non-album singles "Live and let die" and "Helen wheels" in-between!)

I love every song on this album. This is an album that gets a lot of criticism...but, I just adore it. It is 100% for McCartney fans. As such, it's big on melody and light on meaningful lyrics (but, the lyrics were always John's strong point). Highlights on the album include "Big Barn Red," "Little Lamb Dragonfly," and the Medley (which is just almost as good as the medley on Abbey Road).
