Tug of War is the masterpiece everyone has always known Paul McCartney could make. Instead of another homemade effort, McCartney has teamed up with producer George Martin to create a record with a sumptuous aural scope that recalls Sgt. 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. Harmonious, peaceful coexistence is both the ethic and the aesthetic of the album. Popular on Rolling Stone. These companion pieces are simply the most obvious of many such juxtapositions.

It was a somewhat trying time for him: Wings , the hit-making band he put together a few years after the Beatles broke up, just called it quits themselves. It helped that he was working with producer George Martin for the first time since the Beatles' swan song, Abbey Road. Martin knew McCartney better than he knew himself in the studio. McCartney produced or co-produced, in a couple rare cases all of his previous solo records and Wings albums, and the finished material often steered all over the place in search of a direction. Martin was a pro who knew what made McCartney sound good.
It was also his first long-player since the death of John Lennon , and contained the tribute song Here Today , as well as two collaborations with Stevie Wonder. Following the recording and release of McCartney II , Wings reconvened in July for a series of largely unproductive rehearsals. They took place at Finchden Manor in Tenterden, Kent, and the purpose was an unspecified future project.
