    As a Beatles {and to a lesser extent McCartney} fan, it pains me to say it, but this is a very bland and forgettable album in my opinion. I haven't heard anything that stands out or will stand up to repeated listening.

    Easily his best batch of songs in a good 15 years, even though it sounds like an old man reminiscing about the early days, well, that's because it is. Why does he sound like Herbert the Pervert?

    The pop hits sound as good as anything McCartney did with the Beatles, but it's the ballads that make this a winner. [No. 105, p.57]

    Ultimately, it may not include anything that will endure as long as some of his Wings classics, let alone the Fabs’, but it’s a powerful and persuasive album from a man whose innate knack for melody is still firing.

    What could have been a confused, trying-to-be-hip mish-mash is instead a re-playable collection of extremely strong songs, Paul's most interesting, varied and soul-baring in years. [Dec 2013, p.84]
