REVIEWS
Average points: 4.25 (Reviews: 4)
*****
Die Kritiken waren nicht besonders gut aber für viele Fans ist es einer seiner besten Arbeiten.
****
Das Album "Wild Life" kam bei Kritikern und Hörer gleichermaßen schlecht an. Richtig schlecht ist das Album nicht, gut aber auch nicht, es klingt unausgefeilt. Für das noch Beatles verwöhnte Publikum war es sicher, sagen wir mal ungewohnt. Mit mehr Aufwand und mehr Fingerspitzengefühl hätte man mehr rausholen können. Trotzdem arbeitet die Zeit für dieses erste Wings Werk.
*****
Ein völlig unterschätztes, sehr gelungenes Solo-Debüt. Mit Wild Life, I am your singer, Dear Friend und dem bezaubernden Duett "Love is strange" hat es großartige Songs, überragend aber "Tomorrow".

Mit #1o in den USA und #11 in den UK auch nicht so schlecht gestartet.

***
Das Album erinnert in seinem minimalistischen, teils roh und unausgereift wirkenden Ansatz gerade am Anfang eher an das Soloalbum "McCartney".
Insgesamt gesehen sind 2-3 Tracks gut bis sehr gut, der Rest ist leider vernachlässigbar. Im Bereich zwischen 3-4, eher 3.
