How funny, I was just reading this review of Ram earlier today! Yeah, Rolling Stone was rarely very kind to Paul in those earlier days. To be fair, though, they weren't exactly fawning all over John either. Plastic Ono Band got a decent review, but they ripped Imagine, Mind Games, and Walls and Bridges pretty hard.

This review of Ram is an example of exactly why I don't pay much attention to music critics in general, though. Music is so very incredibly subjective ... the two songs that Landau likes off this album aren't exactly the crowd favorites, are they? If I'd listened to Landau, I probably would have missed one of Paul's better solo albums.

Not a bit like Cagney.
