Although borderline despised at the time of it’s release Ram has become a favorite album for McCartney fans everywhere who love a catchy melody and straight forward rock & roll. One of my personal favorites, this album stands the test of time as songs like “Too Many People,” “Dear Boy,” “Heart of the Country” and “Smile Away” never seem to disappoint. Perhaps this wasn’t the album people at the time were hoping for, but maybe people today will see it’s genius when it gets a brand spanking remastered makeover. Harnessed in old-time rock and roll and littered with guitar riffs and catchy as hell choruses, Ram may have been released in 1971 but it continues to reveal it’s originality today.
We realize that listening to digitally remastered music through a computer speaker may seem a bit ridiculous, but at least it’s a good excuse to rock some good tunes.
