      what's yours?

      I'm really enjoying Flaming Pie and Flowers in the Dirt. That being said I need to dedicate more time to albums such as New, Chaos and Creation in the Backyard, Memory Almost Full.

        I'm sure once I post this I'll change my mind about my order, but I might as well give it a shot.

        Ram
        Band on the Run
        Memory Almost Full
        Flaming Pie
        Chaos and Creation in the Backyard
        Venus and Mars
        New
        Tug of War
        Off the Ground
        Press to Play
        Driving Rain
        Flowers in the Dirt
        Red Rose Speedway
        London Town
        McCartney
        McCartney II
        Back to the Egg
        At the Speed of Sound
        Wild Life
        Pipes of Peace

        It's hard putting At the Speed of Sound so low because it has one of my favorite songs on it (as well as some other great songs), but overall I just think it's pretty weak as an album.

          Flaming Pie
          Tug of War
          New
          Venus And Mars
          Band on the Run
          Off The Ground
          Flowers in the Dirt
          McCartney
          Driving Rain
          Chaos and Creation in the Backyard
          London Town
          Wild Life
          At the Speed of Sound
          Back to the Egg
          Press To Play
          McCartney II
          Ram

                          I'm really enjoying Flaming Pie

                          Everybody does it

                          I love many albums Paul made, but FP is different, it has another meaning to me. I can perceive pain in his music, I see a man who's trying to find the courage and strength to walk his new way, a way without Linda. Those kind of things are reflected in Somedays and Heaven On A Sunday

                            I might give a different order on a different day, but here is my listing of studio albums:

                            Chaos And Creation In The Backyard

                                Tug of War No.1 and Pipes of Peace last? Wow. Diverse. I really like both albums.

                                Pipes of Peace, Through Our Love, The Other Me, Keep Under Cover, So Bad, Say Say Say..so many solid tracks. Tug of War is super no doubt.

                                  the title track and Calico Skies are both classics for starters.

I can perceive pain in his music, I see a man who's trying to find the courage and strength to walk his new way, a way without Linda. Those kind of things are reflected in Somedays and Heaven On A Sunday

                                    the title track and Calico Skies are both classics for starters.

                                    And what about "The world tonight"? the lyric I go back so far, I'm in front of me is so clear!! the man feels nostalgic!!

                                    And we have, in Flaming Pie, the lyric I'm the man of the flaming pie?... he's feeling a Beatle again!! sadness (for Linda) and happiness (for recover his best performance) in equal parts!

                                        I almost love all the albums equally, so it's very difficult to put some of them in the bottom of the list
