It's my favourite Paul album, bar none. Crammed with great songs and performances. Don't really understand the complaints about "too much production" If you don't like 1980s production, fair enough, but it's no more "produced" than 'Ram' or 'Sgt Pepper'. I love the 80s sound on the album, it makes it stand out from the rest of Paul's catalogue, particularly tunes like 'Press', 'Talk More Talk' and 'Good Times Coming'. Even the one weak track, 'Pretty Little Head', is interesting because of the production.
Each to their own. But I don't hear people whining about the equally dated production on Paul Simon's 'Graceland', which is a lot less inventive in my opinion (and I'm a Paul Simon fan).
