Just a fun pop rock album. Wasn't meant to be a great album, don't take it too seriously, just enjoy the music. If you're looking for a groundbreaking album, don't bother listening, but that doesn't mean it's not enjoyable.

Having grown up with 'Wings Over America'(Dad's Triple album) the studio tracks here don't quite do it for me very average compared, other than 'Listen to what the Man said','rock Show'best here,'love in Song' a favourite also.

Imho Venus and Mars deserves more credit. It is more consistent than Band on the Run, although the highlights are not as high as that album.

A must-listen for McCartney lovers.

Not Band on the Run. Listenable, but not memorable.

The follow up to, band on the run, Venus and mars, is an enjoyable album. It's certainly not Paul McCartney at his best, but it does feature some good songs. Best of the bunch is the hit single, listen to what the man said, a great song. Elsewhere, the Venus and mars/rock show, duo is fun, spirits of ancient Egypt, is good, and, Jimmy Mculloch's, medicine jar, is an enjoyable rock track. My favourite though is the lovley, treat her gently/lonely old people, it's great. All in all, a good album, though not one of McCartney's best.

A good record by Wings. Listen to What the Man Said and Medicine Jar are my favorites.

Not as good as Red Rose or Band On The Run (the albums that preceded it) but not a bad album contains Listen To What The Man Said and Rock Show, Letting Go & Magneto and Titanium Man all very good songs. The rest of the album is average.

Not their best (McCartney & Wings), but pretty solid album. Doesn't compare to Band on the Run at all.
