Album Review

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.

Customer Reviews

This is Wings greatest studio Album

A five star LP if ever there was one. This album was supposed to have been supported with a world tour but alas it was not to be. Getting Closer, We're Open Tonight, Old Siam Sir, Arrow Through Me, Spin It On and So Glad to See You Here would all be welcome additions to any of Paul's concerts today. Every song on the album is fantastic - great rockers - awesome voice. This was Wings at their very best!

The Wings That Could Have Flown...

Truly an awesome LP! I had SOOO much hope for Wings at this point that PM had 'regrouped' and put together not only one of the most musically cohesive albums of the 'WingSpan' but also one of the most polished of the life of the band. Gems of the album for me would have to be 'Winter Rose/Love Awake' and 'The Broadcast'. Of course the 'hits' off of the album, 'Arrow Through Me', 'So Glad to See You Here' and 'Rockestra Theme' each carry their own weight as well as classic PM/Wings songs. It was both one of my favourite albums from the band as well as one of my biggest disappointments as it signified the end of an era.

Fantastic Album. One iTunes problem though...

This album starts great and stays compelling through out the whole album. My personal favorites being Getting Closer and Arrow Through Me, this album really ties the Wings togther. I have the vinyl version of this album, and it's simply fantastic. Get this album as soon as you can. But, this album was released in 1979, not 1993. iTunes, your never good at getting years right....


Genre: Rock

Following his second solo album, Ram, in 1971, ex-Beatle Paul McCartney and his wife, Linda, formed Wings, which was intended to be a full-fledged recording and touring band. Denny Laine, a former guitarist for the Moody Blues, and drummer Denny Seiwell filled out the lineup and Wings released their first album, Wild Life, in December 1971. Wild Life was greeted with poor reviews and was a relative flop. McCartney and Wings, which now featured former Grease Band guitarist Henry McCullough, spent...
