Paradoxalement, un des tous bons albums du groupe Wings est ce "McGear" (nom d'artiste de Mike McCartney qui ne voulait pas profiter de la notoriété de son célèbre frangin). Paul, pour qui le mot "famille" a toujours été sacré a donc écrit ou co-écrit la plupart des titres de cet album (sauf le "Sea Breezes" de Brian Ferry). S'il n'est crédité sur la pochette que pour la basse, il est en réalité omniprésent dans les vocaux (particulièrement sur "Norton" et sur le manifique coda "The Man who found God on the Moon") et son groupe Wings (amputé de son batteur Geoff Britton qui venait de les quitter) assure une bonne partie de l'accompagnement (Linda aux harmonies et au synthetiseur, Denny Laine à la guitare et aux harmonies et Jimmy McCulloch à la guitare solo). Cela n'enlève rien aux mérites de Mike McGear, auteur d'une bonne partie des textes et dont la voix domine l'ensemble. Se détachent particulièrement le très rocky "Giving Grease a Ride" et le très symphonique "The Man who found God on the Moon". L'édition CD ajoute les deux faces B des singles de l'époque: "Dance the Do" et "Sweet Baby", qui ne déparent pas l'ensemble.

HASH(0xa21191b0) étoiles sur 5 Could've been the best Wings B-sides ever 19 mars 2005
Par R. Blazak - Publié sur

This is the record that got Jimmy McCullough into Wings! A great hidden treasure for Paul McCartney fans. Brother Michael brings his crafty wit from The Scaffold. Paul, Linda, and Denny sound great. Why this wasn't a hit in the middle of Band )n The Run-mania is beyond me. "The Man Who Found God On The Moon" is incredibly innovative for 1974. A must for Paul fans who loved his 70s stuff!

HASH(0xa2119204) étoiles sur 5 Mike McCartney & Wings 27 mai 2003

This is really a Wings album with Paul's brother Mike on lead vocals and it's quite good! Sea Breezes, a Bryan Ferry songs, sounds dull partly because Mike has a weak voice and he emits very little emotion as a singer - it's as if he's singing nursery rhymes at school. Leave It - a Paul song with Paul's trademarks melody and trite 70's lyrics. Have You Got Problems features Wings vocals, a cynical view at politics isn't bad and Rainbow Lady is my favorite partly because of its McCartneyesque melody. Many of the songs here were written by Paul and brother Mike and Mike does manage to add a little wit to what was becoming at the time Paul's increasingly vapid, empty lyrics. This was recorded after Band on the Run so the band is in good shape. But just where Mike Macca thought he was going with this who knows -- it's obvious that without his brother's help he couldn't have produced an album like this. Perhaps the album will stand as a testimony to the close relationship of these two brothers. It's fun and if you're a Macca fun you must have this.

HASH(0xa211963c) étoiles sur 5 A hidden McCartney related gem... 11 juin 2005
Par John Tabacco - Publié sur
Format: CD
This disc is teaming with a bunch of wonderful Paul McCartney melodies and plenty of witty lyrics by his brother Mike. Mike sings most of the tunes but Paul contributes his iconic vocal here and there along with his typically bouncy bass parts. P.M. is also at the helm of production with Denny Laine and Linda joining in on the fun. Tracks that stand out are two numbers penned just by Paul, the catchy "Leave It" and "What Do We Know About Music?"(tasty, concise soloing on that one). There's also the wonderfully melodic, bipolar Bryan Ferry composition "Sea Breezes" which opens this collection and a few co-written songs the McCartney brothers collaborate on: The spacey, arcane: "The Man Who Found God On The Moon", The Monty Pythonesque "Norton" , The rhapsodic "Have You Got Problems?", the poppy "Rainbow Lady" and the semi groovy, slightly new wave sounding : "Giving Grease A Ride".

The album cover is also a hoot; a clever take on Gulliver's Travels with many of the "small people" who contributed to the record hiding amongst a crowd of hundreds. That's Paul peering at us on the back cover, (this only applies to the vinyl version).

It's sad that McCartney never put money into promoting this album. It would have been a big seller right along with "Band On The Run" which came out around the same time.

It's interesting to note that when Sir Paul is challenged with a talented lyricist like his brother or a great song writer like John Lennon or Elvis Costello, he does some of his most brilliant work. He only allows his best assets to come to the fore front. In this case his melodic genius shines through.

If you're a McCartney fan this CD should be in your collection. This Ryko Disc release contains two pieces that were not on the original vinyl record. They don't really add anything special to the collection just some forgettable fast food fun for your ears.

HASH(0xa2119a08) étoiles sur 5 Great music & one of the best album covers!!! 7 décembre 2009
Par Stanley B. Dow - Publié sur
Format: CD
I won't repeat the McCartney stuff. This album is a little dated now but is a great one. McGear sings Sea Breezes in a slightly operatic style and it is not flat at all. This song was a minor hit on FM radio when the album was released. The Rolling Stone review of it at the time was extremely positive. The Man Who Found God on The Moon is an amazing song contrasting a simple girl with ---- the astronaut who did find God on the moon (it is his voice in the song). This was a concept album and should be taken as continuous. It is now a collectors item in LP and will be impossible to get in the future.

"Better Than Most Paul McCartney Records?"


If this wasn't tied by blood to one of Rock's most enduring Names, I doubt anyone here would be championing it that far. McGear's voice is not especially engaging. The songs themselves - although very well produced & performed, don't have the most substantial melodies. Although this could be partly due to the younger McCartney not being able to deliver them that well, but it's hard to tell. Even on songs like "Giving Grease A Ride" which Rock the hardest, there just doesn't seem to be a singable or humable melody line that would stick with you in the long run, as in the tradition of the best Beatles & McCartney tunes. Furthermore, a lot of the tracks seem to go on a little bit longer than they ought to.

There has been over the decades, an unconscious narrative that's held to that makes Paul McCartney's stuff "uncool" as opposed to his former Beatles songwriting partner. There's been a tendency to be unreasonably hard on Paul, but not especially objective about John's solo stuff, though "Mr. Ono" didn't always fire on all cylinders, either.

I say this, because that seems to be the impetus behind knighting this "McGear" album with the mantle of "better than most of Paul's solo stuff." It's "cool" to do so. Similar claims have been made about Emmit Rhodes that don't hold up upon examination, either. Unlike McGear, Rhodes' stuff is much better writing. *Like* McGear, neither of them show themselves capable of the Sweaty Rock 'N' Roll that Macca served with ease, and more often than once ("Mumbo," "Soily," "Coming Up," "Juniors Farm," "Girls School" - do I really need to make a list?)

In any case, McGear strikes me as a better collection of "ideas" for songs than actual songs itself. Like another Beatles associate, Yoko Ono, one is left wondering what these would be without the more powerful Collaborator in the mix. My guess is not much at all.
