Wings - Venus & Mars
Hey, it's Wings! The genuine good timey ROCK 'N ROLL BAND! They open their album with a song called "Rock Show." It's a ROCK SONG. With cowbell!!! It includes the lyrics:
You've got long hair
At the Madison Square
You've got rock 'n roll
At the Hollywood Bowl
Awesome, right??? The first couple Wings albums were boring and half-assed. The third one was focused and fucking classic. This one is just hilarious, and thus, endlessly enjoyable. There are all these stupid songs liked "Magneto & Titanium Man" and then there are a bunch of funny voices and dumb genre exercises. Really cuttin' loose with this one! Goooood shiiiiit!!!!! "You've Got The Answer" is the fruitiest thing I've ever heard. "Letting Go" is FUNKY 70S DISCO SLOW GROOVEZ. "Medicine Jar" is generic 70s cock rock. Denny Laine or some non-Paul McCartney guy sings on a few songs. They suck.
Awesome fucking album.
Rating: Better than all the Beatles albums combined. 1000/10.
Song: "Magneto & Titanium Man"... I WOULD PAY 80 DOLLARS FOR A DOUBLE VINYL + CD "DISCBOX" WITH NOTHING BUT THIS SONG, THAT'S HOW GREAT IT IS.
