Flawless record, flat and quiet. The sound is excellent, no excessive bass for a remastering, and a lot of clarity. One fo the cheapest way to get the vinyl of this great Macca album.

This is the Re-mixed version from 2015. If you go to this page here https://www.discogs.com/Paul-McCartney-Tug-Of-War/release/12534141 and look at the very last photo you can see it say's "Remixed by ... etc. I know there is a plain remaster included in the 3 CD set from 2015. I hope there is simply remastered version release by itself, NOT re-mixed. The cool thing about the remix is Paul did some of it.

You want adult contemporary rock … well here’s more than you could have hoped for.

Let me make no bones about it, I detested this album with all my heart, I found nothing redeeming or intellectually socially relevant about this stylish polished romantic buffoonery. Of course others will tell you that Tug Of War is a veritable encyclopedia of contemporary studio pop in the deluxe high-tech tradition of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours, Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall and Stevie Wonder’s Songs in the Key of Life. Absolutely every cut offers a stylistic montage of one sort or another, creating an actual tug of war between different pop notions … between British pop parochialism and Afro-American progressiveness, escapist fantasy and sage observation, world-weariness and utopian sentiments. But McCartney doesn’t just present these oppositions, he unites them. Harmonious, peaceful coexistence is both the ethic and the aesthetic of the album.

Can’t you hear me banging my head against the wall? This is worse than Paul with his lovey dovey vocals to Linda, it’s all sickly sweet, where I imagine that if they’d wished to, they could have had something divinely lovely to sing about to Ronald Regan, where better yet, ol’ Ronny could have chimed in with them while Nancy sang “Remember, just say no” in the background. That being said, allow me to assure you that McCartney did not strike a balance between Wings’ streamlined post modern pop rock, or the music-box miniaturis of his solo projects, nor does he expand on the Beatles baroque expansiveness, he simply brings vaudeville back with fresh scrubbed faces and bright white smiling teeth, essentially undoing anything he’d ever stood for.

Even with George Martin in tow, only half of this album rises to the height of being rewardingly average. It’s adult contemporary at its very best from a now out of the loop 40 year old, a sinister sniping away at anything one could consider cohesive and relevant, it’s all high-end schmaltz of well crafted music and as usual, entirely flawed lyrics, an album that tumbled over itself with goofiness. To my way of thinking, the album and Paul’s kitchen sink approach to music was overly praised at the time of its release due to the death of John Lennon, though today for me, it’s nothing but a notable failure. The song “Ebony and Ivory” was a joke on the world. I remember sitting there dumbfounded watching the video wondering what corner I’d missed as the world turned. In front of me was the Donald Fagen album Nightfly, The Psychedelic Furs, Springsteen’s Nebraska, Van Morrison, Tom Petty’s Long After Dark along with a host of other brilliant records from this year, and this what Paul McCartney is offering up … to which in inimitable Nancy Regan style, I’ll just say ‘NO’.

Tug Of War was McCartney's return to full on production with George Martin and a host of guest musicians after 1980s introverted and experimental McCartney II LP. This was also his first album after John Lennon's untimely death in 1980 and you get the impression he was throwing himself into his music full throttle as the album is a mix of styles from the masterly ballads such as Tug Of War and Wanderlust, a great track because it simply reminds you of 'The Long And Winding Road' and that's not a bad thing. The orchestra and brass are powerful and well scored. The are novelty songs too which is Paul just simply having fun in a show tune sort of way. Stevie Wonder appears on the hard funk of 'What's That You're Doing?' and the lovely duet 'Ebony And Ivory' which was a hit on the charts. 'Take It Away' another single and is a great track and so is 'Dress Me Up as a Robber' and one wonders Was Paul was listening to Earth, Wind And Fire and Level 42 perhaps, and this is one of the best songs here as it's a style he hadn't ventured into until now. There are weak songs but the good ones outweigh them. The guests also include high profile players such as Steve Gadd, Stanley Clarke, Carl Perkins, Denny Laine, Eric Stewart and Ringo Starr. 1982 is the dark ages now when you look back, but this was the album that gave Paul the courage to face the next phase of his fascinating musical career.
