Technically, All the Best was the first compilation of McCartney’s solo material, since Wings Greatest covered songs released under the Wings aegis. Well, there is considerable overlap between the two records — no less than ten of that album’s 12 songs are here, yet only the hard-rocking “Hi Hi Hi” is truly missed — although the seven new songs do give this album a different character, for better or worse. … However, as a cross section of McCartney’s solo singles, this is very, very good. It may be a little heavy on the schmaltz at times, yet this is still mainstream pop craft of the highest order.
