Songs such as the flute powered "Growing Pain","Run Run Run" and "Angry Young Woman" are soulful,electric piano led ballads while "Yellow Girl (Stand By For Life)" and "Man Man Man" both have stomping,swinging cabaret jazzy blues rhythmic flavors about them.
"Coffin Car" has a grinding blues/rock vibe that is repeated on the cooler "She Hits Back" while "If Only" is a harmonica led country/blues type ballad. "A Thousand Times Yes" is a rhythmically clean jazz-funk number not too far from something the Crusaders might've done at this time while "Straight Talk" updates the rock 'n soul shuffle of "Instant Karma" from her viewpoint. "Woman Power" is a stomping,percussive funk rocker with a rapped vocal from Yoko.
"I Learn To Stutter" is a live spoken intro to a verision of "Coffin Car" where Yoko talks of how the press attack that accompanied her marriage to Lennon deeply effected her emotionally. "Mildred Mildred" is a swinging nightclub friendly piano ballad.Read more ›
Here we find an album about women, for women and by a woman. Most songs deal with the stress and strain of women trying to survive in a male-dominated society, however you don't have to be a woman to enjoy this album. Songs like "Angry Young Woman", "She Hits Back", and the album's single "Woman Power" could have easily been anthems for the feminist movement. Others like "Yellow Girl", "Coffin Car", and "Woman of Salem" depict the damage done to woman by the ongoing oppression of the male society.
This album also features many other fine moments. The song "Run, Run, Run", a single in Europe and Japan, deals with drug addiction and a world passing you by without your knowledge. The key lyric of the song, "Feeling the room, Feeling the space, when suddenly I noticed it wasn't spring anymore", is quite a reality check in itself.
The highlight of the album though is it's closing track, a song titled "Men Men Men". Here Yoko turns the tables on men by depicting what she seeks in a man and not the other way around as was custom at the time. Yoko gives a hats off to Mae West in the songs final refrains when she breathfully beckons "Come up and hmm-hmm, come up and see me sometime." In probably one of the most clever lyrics of the time,Yoko announces "Ladies and Gents, I'd like to introduce you to...Read more ›
