In all, a very solid debut for McCartney following the Beatles' split. His songwriting isn't as impressive as we would see on later projects but there are still a few well-written tracks here and there. The instrumentals are well-arranged also. I just wish "The Lovely Linda" was longer; that track sounds like it could be catchy if it had better structure.

Light 7/10
An elementary debut, played exclusively by Paul, that keeps a defensive attitude towards the Beatles split by simply declaring his presence.
A classic, inspiring and charming, love the raw nature of it.

Best track: Maybe I'm Amazed
Worst track: Kreen-Akrore
Mais chatinho do que eu lembrava, ainda preso a fórmula Beatles de fazer melodias. Ainda sim tem hits incríveis como That Would Be Something, Every Night, Man We Was Lonely e Maybe I'm Amazed.
It´s either a half-assed statement or an unasuming exercise of style but it´s charming alright.
