Back to the Egg

by: Wings

Back to the Egg is Paul McCartney's attempt to get back to rock & roll after the soft rock of London Town. Assembling a new lineup of Wings, McCartney leads the group through a set of radio-ready songs, ranging from the arena rock of "Old Siam, Sir" to the adult contemporary pop of "Arrow Through Me." These are two of the more enjoyable moments on an uneven album that's nevertheless of interest to dedicated fans, due to McCartney's effortless popcraft, as well as the fact that this was the last record Wings ever released. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
