Rolling Stone (p.76) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] grand psychedelic ramble full of divine melodies and orchestral frippery....RAM sounds ahead of its time..."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.100) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] defiantly miniaturist pleasures -- the gauzy lo-fi of 'Ram On'; 'Dear Boy''s pocket choir of McCartneys...[and] the easy-swinging, pre-Wings soft rock of 'Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey'..."
Uncut (magazine) (p.96) - "RAM was McCartney's real return to the pop arena....Occasionally brilliant and historically fascinating."

Notes

At the beginning of his solo career, McCartney took the term rather literally, recording virtually alone, playing and singing nearly all the parts himself. Nowhere is that approach more effective than on RAM, arguably his finest solo recording. Admittedly, he had a little help from guitarist Hugh McCracken and a couple of others here and there, but for the most part, this is Paul's show. Instead of succumbing to self-indulgence, though, he used this forum to focus his artistic energies, thus turning out some of the best songs of his post-Beatles career.
The opening "Too Many People" is an appealingly melodic rocker that combines the two sides of McCartney--melodious popster and unabashed rocker--to unprecedented effect. He gets bluesy on "3 Legs," homespun-acoustic on "Heart of the Country," and appealingly jocular on the radio hit "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey," whose whimsy recalls his best light-hearted Beatles efforts. What he maintains throughout all this is his vision, never getting sidetracked into loopy experimentalism or sentimental mush. RAM is McCartney at the peak of his considerable powers, spontaneous-sounding but still expertly crafted.
