WOW, Pipes Of Peace is like crack. I want to hear it again, and again, and again.  I don't know why.  I'm serious!  I think it might be my favorite one.  Could it be better than Ram?  I think it might.

Which Paul McCartney album are you inexplicably addicted to?

It always changes for me. Right now, I'm with you on Pipes Of Peace. I don't think it's my favorite album of his, but it might just be the happiest one. There are a few of his albums that I can never get enough of and am always in the mood to listen to, though.

Pipes Of Peace is one of his weakest, IMO. Some great songs on there and some weak ones.

For me, Ram is like crack, I literally listen to it 3-4 times a week all the way through and never tire of it! Same with McCartney, McCartney II, and all his Wings stuff. But Ram is *IT* for me!

Are we including Wings?  Because I am quite fond of "Red Rose Speedway".  I was listening to it while painting the other day, it was a great mix!

Funny you mention RRS, I listened to it last night and again this morning. Great album! Little Lamb Dragonfly, Get On the Right Thing, and Big Barn Bed are favorites, as is the B-side The Mess from that era.

Ram is the one that really endures with me - I'll go long periods without listening to it but when I come back it's always just as incredible as the first time. By contrast, I can barely make it through one sitting of Pipes Of Peace! I like the title track though.

If Wings counts than I would go for Band On The Run. One of his most overrated album and I can see why. I can't get enough of the title track along with Mrs. Vanderbilt.

I LOVE Band On The Run but for my money, Venus And Mars is the more satisfying album (apart from the two non-Paul songs, Spirits of Ancient Egypt and Medicine Jar)

I can stand all day just listening to RAM and McCartney, but I can't stand some of the tracks in Band On The Run for prolonged hours.

I don't know that I've ever been addicted to any McCartney/Wings album, actually. There are ones I like very much, of course, or even kinda love (Ram and Band On The Run, the usual suspects), but I can hardly recall a time when I've ever needed to hear a Paul album, definitely not the way I periodically need to hear the Beatles. It's more like, "Hm, I wouldn't mind hearing McCartney right now, think I'll throw that on."

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

I'm the same as Von. I like a lot of his albums but I never feel an urge to listen to a particular one. Particular songs (can't get enough of 'Jet' atm), yes, but not albums.

Same Von and Emmy, I'm never really "addicted" to one of Paul's album but I remember when I first heard the "Band On The Run" album, I listened to it about 4 times straight, good times

Anyways at the moment I quite like "Temporary Secretary" even though when I first heard it I hated and thought "Why do so many hard-core Paul fans want him to play this at his concerts???" but now it's kinda of grown on me :)

Pipes Of Peace is one of his weakest, IMO. Some great songs on there and some weak ones.

Agreed.  Along with Press To Play, it's pretty much the only Paul album I'd label as "For Completists Only."  a-hard-days-night-paul-10

I disagree.  Press To Play is weak, awful and at times very hard on the ears because it sucks so much.  Pipes Of Peace has brilliant, catchy melodies and is pleasing to the ear.

I like a few songs on Press To Play quite a lot: Press, Move Over Busker, Good Times Coming/Feel the Sun, and Stranglehold are all good tunes. But I think we can all agree that after the excellent Tug Of War, he lost his way a bit until Flowers In The Dirt.
