Terrific album. Almost as good as the Beatles later output, certainly better than their first few albums

I mean it's just boring. Apart from the closer which is epic.

A great album to put on during a rainy day or whenever you need a pick-me-up. Very joyful compared to the other's solo careers.

I've listened to the album a good few times now and apart from the first two tracks, the rest just doesn't land with me. It's perhaps too whimsical and poppy for my taste - I prefer Lennon and Harrison's solo stuff I must confess which has more of a bite and statement about them

A superb album with some awesome highlights, but too many mediocre songs to make it a classic imho. Still I love it very much.

It's hard for me to say, but I think this is my favorite out of any of the solo Beatles records. I think every song on the album is great and some are just as good (and some are better) than even the best of The Beatles. Paul did an amazing job here.

A great album and McCartney's best almost every track is a winner No Words & Picasso's Last Words being the only tracks that are less than 85/100. The rest of the album is fantastic pop music.

This is McCartney's best because it's McCartney at his breezy best, mixing sounds, changing gears, playing with structure, like the genius he is. To me this is a light remake of Abbey Road or the White Album, without the melancholy or deeper tinges that Lennon and Harrison brought to the table.
