Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 7% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 76.3/100, a mean average of 75.9/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.4.

Grande estréia de McCartney. Ecos experimentalistas e psicodélicos belíssimos, apesar da produção crua.

Overall: 8.5

Top Tracks: "That Would Be Something" "Every Night", "Man We Was Lonely"

Too bare for me personally, perhaps a poor idea to release in the immediate aftermath of the break-up of the greatest band in history. The romantic songs are charming, but I think the album could have benefited with more time and a larger band.

This was better than my expectations. I like the romantic songs, the experimental folk feeling and the psychedelic jams

FINDING YOUR HOME

But tonight I just want to stay in
And be with you,
And be with you - Every Night

The right girl (or boy) can make all the difference. When she comes along it’s like all of a sudden a huge weight is lifted from your shoulders. From your spirit. You suddenly feel at peace. You realize that unconsciously you had felt somehow incomplete. And this incompleteness caused a striving to make things right. To correct that imbalance. And we unconsciously try to correct that incompleteness with all sorts of stuff - bad tv, drugs, becoming a workaholic, what have you! It's different for everyone. But we are trying to fill a void we didn’t even know was there. And there all kinds of ways to fill that emptiness. Like making charts. lol. Or collecting things fanatically. There’s this pressure of more and more. And then all of suddenly the right girl comes along and BAM… this huge weight is lifted. A weight you didn’t even know you were carrying. And this weight makes us feel that something’s not right. , It makes us hurried. Rushing about our day. Not settled. And when that weight is lifted, you feel this incredible sense of peace and comfort. That you are exactly in the right place and the right time. There is no where else we need to be. Nothing else we need to do. That finally you are in the right place. That you are at home.

There’s a Feeling that you can do - ANYTHING! And she will still love you. Because she knows you. Really, really, knows you. And accepts your for what you are - quirks and all. Especially those quirks. She’s your cheerleader. She’s got you’re back. When you’re with her you have nothing to worry about. And that’s what this album is really all about. And what really tips it off are those instrumentals.. Tracks like “Valentine Day” and “Momma Miss america.” McCartney just doesn’t give a fuck. He’s free. Loose. Just ready to rip and have some fun. Embracing life like we all should. And it’s easy when you’re with the right girl. God knows I’ve been there. So if you find one. Find a girl that truly loves you. Someone who laughs at your jokes, can nurture you when your sick and really looks at you when you’re talking to her. That makes you feel like you’re at home. Embrace it, brothers. Settle down and make a home. Because you’re already there.

WARNING!: Don’t get spoiled. Don’t expect that every woman is going to love you like that. I was blessed to be in several great relationships. Girls who loved me even when I was sick. And I took it for granted. Got those old wandering eyes. Gouge them out, brother. Gouge them out. lol.

Grade: A. This album is a fun, boisterous romp through young love. It instantly brightens my day. It’s care free and easy. Because McCartney didn’t have a care in the world at this point of time. The huge pressure of expectations that were the Beatles had been lifted. He with the love of his life - “The Lovely Linda” - living on a country farm free to do whatever he wanted. And his happiness and confidence fill this record. And fill me when I listen to it. Instantly bringing in the summer and the sun. And like a wild flower after a heavy rain it shoots up my chart to number 17.

Dedicated to my boy, NoisyBeast and his “Lovely Linda.” You guys are the greatest!

Very uneven. Maybe I'm amazed and Junk are outstanding. Every night, That would be something and Teddy bear are ok/good. The rest is weak for McCartney. He might wanted it that way but I don't listen to the guy intentions, just his output record. Overall it's not a good album to listen to IMHO.
