Nah, I'd go with Ram. The second half of Band on the Run is pretty forgettable and Ram is a crazy, kaleidoscopic adventure from start to finish. There are very few albums that are more fun.

I've always found Band on the Run (the song) pretty dumb and stylistically schizophrenic. Could say the same thing about Live and Let Die.

For me, Venus and Mars has a good number of highlights without as much of the stuff that annoys me.

For me it's All Things Must Pass, Ram, and Mind Games in that order as my top 3. Imagine, Plastic Ono Band, and Band On The Run are my next 3.

Wow, what makes you put Mind Games ahead of both Imagine and Plastic Ono Band? I don't even think it's close to those two. Love the title track, though.

Plastic Ono Band and Imagine are great albums.

I wish I liked Mind Games, Walls and Bridges and Double Fantasy more. I've tried. They all contain brilliant songs, but as full albums they're just OK.

Agreed. Double Fantasy is my favorite of those others, though. The John tracks on there are really strong. Straightforward and catchy and inviting. The Yoko tracks...not so much.

It definitely opens up after the first two little sections end and the third part...the real "Band On The Run" part of the song begins (after the big horn fanfare). But I like the previous two sections, too.

"All I need is a pint a day..." is a line I'm fond of.

Temporary Secretary from McCartney II is such a weird Brian Enoesque song.

Tight A$, Intuition and #9 Dream are three of my top five Lennon solo songs, so that helps.

The mention of Mind Games prompted me to bring the disc on the way to work today, and after about halfway through I think it's pretty damned solid. Personal stuff with a sense of humor and an ear for melody.

It's good, yeah. I just don't think it's near Plastic Ono Band or Imagine.

Just taking the former, I mean, songs like "God" and "Mother" are so powerful to me.

Ha! I was misremembering that one. Obviously haven't listened to it in too long. I think I threw it on a burned copy or a playlist with the rest of the album once so I made that association.

He played that live when I saw him, it was a highlight, so weird and interesting

What's everyone's thoughts on latter-day McCartney? I thought "New" was a damn good album. I particularly loved "Queenie Eye," "Appreciate" and "Early Days."
