Paul put a proper band, Wings, together and then cut Wild Life, which is even more casual than his first two solo albums. Macca doesn't help matters by frontloading the set with filler like "Bip Bop," but there are some real gems here. "Tomorrow" should've been the single -- it's one of his all time best solo efforts. "Some People Never Know" is another lovely McCartney ballad, and the chilling, cinematic ballad "Dear Friend" is obviously a letter to Lennon.
