McCartney's third post-Beatles album, and the first credited to his new band Wings, saw the former Beatle continue his exploration of stripped-down, garage-like recording. With Denny Laine on guitar and Denny Seiwell on drums, the overall vibe is similar to that of MCCARTNEY: short repetitive hooks, fuzzed-out electric guitars, mid-tempos, and pleasurable ear-candy throwaways.
This is all fine and dandy because, except for the title track where Paul and Linda are already previewing their vegetarian and pro-animal rights views, the lyrics aren't overburdened with meaning. Musically, though, you can already hear McCartney exploring styles his old band didn't touch upon, as on "Wild Life"'s downbeat, dub-influenced bass line, and the Afro-pop overtones of Laine's guitar melodies. WILD LIFE represents a transitional period for McCarntney: he was working against his own tendencies toward pop grandeur that he had perfected with the Beatles en route to the leaner, streamlined rock sound of the later '70s Wings. The result is a light, fun, almost carefree album.
