With all things Paul McCartney, many will argue what makes McCartney the legend he turned out to be post-Beatles. Most will point to Band On The Run and later the classy Tug Of War. But in recent years, Ram has become the cult classic it deserves to be.

The album, credited to Paul & Linda McCartney for tax purposes only, is the driving wedge between what Paul McCartney was as a Beatle and the true-to-form rock artist he became in the 70s.

"Uncle Albert / Admiral Halsey" is the #1 single from this album, but certainly not the epicenter of this classic album. Every song is a drive home of the rocker Paul established as a Beatle, digging into his past pieces; "Oh Darling" and "Rocky Raccoon". It's partially crude but somehow polished. It was hated by many back in the day but most have seen the light and looked back on this record fondly.

"Back Seat of My Car" is epic, "Ram On" is cute and unfluttered, "Dear Boy" is nostalgic like a White Album, "Honey Pie", "Monkberry Moon Delight" is silly, but unlike "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" but more like, "You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)". "Smile Away" is funny and rocks well. "Heart Of The Country" is a classic piece reminding you that Paul McCartney ended up being a force to be reckoned with. Ram has it all.
