This is the album where Paul decided to let the other members of Wings have their own songs. This didn\'t work out all that well, except for Denny Laine, who is actually quite good I think (he\'s got songwriting credits on \"Band on the Run\" and \"London Town,\" and \"Time to Hide\" is one of my favorites of this album). Paul\'s songs are by far the best - like \"Beware My Love,\" \"Warm and Beautiful\" and \"Silly Love Songs.\"

\"Warm & Beautiful\" is a lovely track. How that can be categorized as a \"stinker\" any way you slice it, is beyond me.

By the mid-1970\'s I had had my fill of disappointing ex-Beatles\' music so I never purchased this album (CD, that is) until 2005. Many of the songs received enough air time then for me to remember nearly every track (and be pleasantly surprised by many good songs I had forgotten about). This is quite a good album! Paul seems completely content to just write appealing songs and not try to replicate the heights of the Beatles. His attempts to give time to the other band members is commendable and reasonably successful (and in Linda\'s case, hilarious). I am quite surprised and pleased at how much I enjoy this album.

For some reason, around this time, Paul started thinking of Wings as a real band. He decided to be democratic and let each member in the band have a moment. I guess he didn't realize that the buying pubic at large really could care less about Linda, Denny Laine, Jimmy McCulloch and whoever the hell played the drums for this album. The McCartney tunes here are excellent. Not one stinker. Even a couple of bona fide classics, namely Let Em In and Silly Love Songs. Beware My Love is terrific. San Ferry Anne is pleasant enough and Warm and Beautiful is the required McCartney love song. All in all a very good album. Skip over all the non McCartney crap.

This album doesn't flow that well but there a handful of cool tracks. San Ferry Ann, She's My Baby, Silly Love Songs, Let 'em In, Beware My Love...
The stinkers on Speed Of Sound are Cook Of The House and Warm & Beautiful.
PS (Just realised that I didn't rate Driving Rain and McCartney II - I'd have given a 9 to McCartney II and a 1 to Driving Rain).
If you know this album you can review it.
