I FINALLY got around to listening to this whole album, and omg it's so good. I listened to it like five times last night. This might be my new fave
Paul McCartney album. 

Yippee! Glad you found it to be a pleasure. It is vying for my first place, #1 McCartney album with "Tug Of War." I may just have to call it a draw for 1st place.

Glad everyone is liking it so much.  I really liked it as well but have a few marginally ahead of it; including Ram, Band On The Run and Venus And Mars - and I haven't even listened to anything post 1980 yet apart from New and Broad Street.  But I do have it marginally in front of London Town which I also like a lot so that must be a good sign.

^add Tug Of War to that list. Apart from the two Stevie Wonder collaborations, that album is a masterpiece!

Totally agree, DrBeatle. Be prepared for trcanberra to tell us we shouldn't skip those two songs :-)

I completely forgot What's That You're Doing existed, an atrocious McCartney/Wonder concoction. It should be noted however that Paul wrote Ebony and Ivory by himself, Stevie only added vocals, and not even at the same as Paul did. 

I'm kind of relieved to know this, haha.

Paul writes with two music legends in the form of Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder and nothing they did is worth spending 3 seconds or 3 pence on. 

On Tug Of War the worst tracks are the collaborations (the other being Get It). Makes you wonder, doesn't it?

But then his collaborations with Elvis Costello are excellent. And even though it's not my thing, the Fireman project is well-respected. Maybe he was having off years. Maybe giving in to the urge at the time, to paraphrase MJ, to write some hits just didn't serve him well.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Well, as noted in another thread I never skip tracks; but anyone else is most welcome to go for it :)

I'm not a big Stevie Wonder fan at the best of times, and suspect that their two styles just don't marry together well.  I have only heard the single off it so far and find it not TOO bad.
