Level of familiarity before listening
I listened to a Wings record, Band on the Run, back in May, and was not impressed. I’ve never heard Wings at the Speed of Sound before.
What I expected
More forgettable Faul McCartney post-Beatles songs.
What it was actually like
Like the other Wings record, this one was pretty bad.
Let ‘Em In had a disco sound, which I found extremely jarring, and also the chorus sounded a little like a fife and drums marching band. Silly Love Songs was also disco. I get that it was 1976, but come on.
Wino Junko was all right, and I liked its electric guitar.
Cook of the House was a very poorly executed rockabilly song that could have been great, if they had been serious about doing it in a rockabilly style.
2/5: bad, but I was able to listen to the whole thing
