3.0 goodmorrissey EMERITUS | June 21st 06

I got this record for free, shortly after I had digest all of the Beatles career and was ready to absorb the solo material. Based on reputation alone, I wasn't expecting much. McCartney had oft been shrugged off as a composer of "silly love songs" rather than a serious music artist. I personally don't see why the two can't go hand in hand. McCartney set a template for pop songs with his work in the Beatles; he expanded on it with Wings. While Wings were disappointingly inconsistent, their best work is quite good. While one would have hoped that the 1/4 of the "greatest band of all time" (quite possibly an accurate claim) would have created much better material than he did with Wings, their hits, their "greatest" songs, are wonderful. Still, Wings Greatest isn't comprehensive, thanks to an unusually short tracklisting, and it has since been rendered obsolete by the release of Wingspan Hits and History. Ultimately this now stands as a pointless album as many greatest hits albums end up being.
