I'm 38 and fell in love with The Beatles in 1999/2000. It was only 10 years ago that I began digging into their prospective solo albums and I started with RAM (my personal favorite "Beatles' solo album" though I concede ATMP is probably the most epic, sorry PM). Over the years, I've come to admire not only Paul's music but his character, etc. I've delved into all the albums, even Press to Play, but I always ignored Off The Ground. And it's fucking good!
It's not groundbreaking in any way, it's just a collection of well-crafted, catchy songs. The main thing working against it, in my opinion, is its bland early/mid-90s production. It's caught in this era between the worst of 80s/early 90s pop cheese and the grunge/mid-90s stripped down approach. I can't help but wish this album had been recorded a few years later, with a leaner more live-sounding production. Can we get Giles Martin to re-master this album? Cut the reverb, dial the drums back, add some Billy Preston-style keys and you have a pretty killer record.
