It does exactly what it says on the tin. If it's not about football then it belongs in here for discussion. Once again we ask that you respect your fellow posters.

Paul and Linda McCartney's "Ram" LP reached number one on the NME. The album included Paul's first number 1 single in America without the Beatles, “Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey".

But the music critics absolutely hammered it, and were as negative as it gets - with comments such as ...

“Incredibly inconsequential" and "monumentally irrelevant".

“Paul benefited immensely from collaboration with the Beatles, particularly John Lennon, who held the reins in on McCartney's cutsie-pie, florid attempts at pure rock muzak".

Playboy accused Paul of "substituting facility for any real substance".

“An excursion into almost unrelieved tedium" and "the worst thing Paul McCartney has ever done."

"A bad record, a classic form/content mismatch", and “obscenely producing a style of music meant to be soft and whimsical.”

“Trouble is you expect too much from a man like Paul McCartney."

“It would be naive to have expected the McCartneys to produce anything other than a mediocre record”.

Every Picture Tells a Story , Rod Stewart , my first ever 33 rpm LP , bought from a little shop in Gorseinon called Sullivans .

Entering that shop and asking the owner to order me the latest 33/45 vinyl issue , which he always tried to do , was my introduction to music after hearing stuff on my transistor radio .

From that list a nod to Wings , ELP and Free also .

I used to go to Saturday Morning Pictures there every week in the late 50s and early 60s. 4 minute walk from where I lived.

Life is a strange thing: just when you think you've learned how to use it, it's gone.
