this album is a pleasant surprise. Nice diversity of styles (pop, rock, folk, progressive) and a warm relaxing feeling through it all. Even the Denny Laine songs are quite pleasant (''Children, children'' and ''Deliver your children'' sound a lot like George Harisson!). London town is a personal favourite and a wonderfully crafted number.

Delicious album with a very special and nostalgic atmosphere to me. It brings me back to my adolescence in the mid eighties, when I was discovering the Beatles and their solo albums. This is the first McCartney album I ever bought, and without even knowing it existed. It was very exciting every time I discovered a McCartney album cover. With time I appreciate more and more this record, in my opinion one of his strongest. Very enjoyable. "London Town", "Cafe on the left bank", "I'm carrying", amongst others, are great.

It hurts me that this album does not have 4 and half. I think on this album, Paul McCartney shows that with a sweet accompaniment and a warm voice can make great songs. This album gives me an incredible peace. Just need to hear "London Town," "I'm Carrying", "Girlfriend," or the great "With a Little Luck", "Do not Let It Bring You Down". Paul also try something different cancines as "Cafe on the Left Bank", "Backwards Traveller," "I've Had Enough" or "Morse Moose and the Grey Goose." Also one could say that there is one other good contribution of the band, such as "Deliver Your Children" by Denny Laine. It should rescue the album conveys a different type of atmosphere to other albums. I really believe that, while it might not be 5 star closed, deserves to have 4 stars and a half.PD: I think that this album would be a great companion for a walk around town in the rain and sipping coffee.

London Town slips into McCartney's more pop-oriented catalog and doesn't really "rock." However, Paul's strength is melodies with hooks with catchy writing, therefore it makes London Town a pleasant enough listen. A very laid back record, fits in well with the soft rock/disco sound of the late 70s. With both Jimmy McCulloch and Joe English leaving the band during the recording, the Band On The Run lineup of Paul and Linda as well as Denny Laine was left to promote the album. Linda wasn't as active as in the past, son James was born as the sessions took place. Still, Paul makes it an interesting listen. Key tracks are I'm Carrying, I've Had Enough, With A Little Luck, and Famous Groupies.

My first hearing of this album in 1978, was disappointment. I didn’t like Paul’s use of the word Rozzer to describe a British policeman in the title track, still makes me cringe. I like a lot of the tracks, especially, Cafe on the Left Bank, I’m Carrying, I’ve had enough, Don’t let it bring you down and Girlfriend. I feel though, that Name and Address, the Elvis tribute, comes across as very self conscious and could have made a great straight rocker. The hit single With a little luck, which I always felt fell down before the instrumental break, could have been better produced and the difference is heard in the radio edit version from Pure McCartney. Finally, Morse Moose and Backwards Traveller/Cuff Link could have been left off and replaced with Mull of Kintyre and Girls School (though they are included on the CD reissue) and would have raised the standard of the album immensely. So to me it is not one of his best, but I would still give it 3 stars out of 5.

Five of the songs are Denny Laine compositions finished off by McCartney and don't really stand the test of time as they are plodding English folk ballads. Of the McCartney only songs, the only ones I find inspiring are "With a little luck" and "Name and Address". This album is dull.

I always thought this was a really good album and much better than most critics rated it. Even nearly 40 years later it holds up nicely. Of course, there's always something to pick at and I never did much care for Morse Moose and the Grey Goose. Also I always thought Paul slipped a bit on the song London Town and could never understand why he opted to vocalize the "toot toot toot" bit when singing about a flute playing. Why not just play a flute, for crying out loud? To me it diminishes an absolutely beautiful song.

It's an okay album with some strong moments but 4 to 5 stars no way! When it came out, I liked it and listened to it a lot. I think everyone cuts him too much slack. For a McCartney album, not bad but a 4 star? If you look at other 4 star albums, it does not even come close. Very average.
