TJR says

La-la-la-la-la-la lovely Linda, with the lovely flowers in the hair”. Ten seconds was all it took to realise this LP was going to be an endurance test. To be fair, the multi-talented 27-year-old was, understandably, on a bit of a downer, his steady job as co-chief Beatle at an end. By all accounts, Linda McCartney was the rock which kept him afloat at this time, so perhaps it was only right that he opened the set with a love letter. Equally, this doesn't mean I have to enjoy it. All instruments were played by McCartney himself, with a rough n ready homemade demo aesthetic which was both brave and potentially a good thing. Unfortunately, there's not a single song which connects with me. By and large, all the solo Beatles seem kinda boring on their own.
