TUG OF WAR, mercifully, survived that sound, too. Paul didn't succumb to it, really, till PRESS TO PLAY.
There WERE plenty of good artists around and some of them didn't even fall for that crappy, echoey, synthy sound, which you almost HAD to have in order to get a hit on the radio then (sort of like it's almost a given that any hit today has to have some kind of rap/hip hop bridge in the middle of the song).
Sorry, that sound turns me off. Can't give even good music a chance when I hear that.
Went back and listened (on YOUTUBE) to Joey Molland's first solo album, or portions of it, called AFTER THE PEARL. It was released in '83 or something like that. It WREAKS of that sound. Couldn't listen to more than a couple of songs, and then not even in their entirety. It's the only album he ever did that sounded that way.
Oh, well. That's just the way I feel about it!
