IMAGINE is the best album ever created by the best song writer who ever lived.
Johnnielaredo
Whether you are a fan of the Beatles or just love music, Imagine will be a wonderful addition to everyones collection of mucic albums.
David Marshall
"Jealous guy", "Oh my love" and "Oh yoko!" are all good love songs, or even `fear of love' songs.

John's back catalog was repackaged to commemorate what would have been his seventieth birthday. This album ranks up with "Plastic Ono Band" as one of his best solo works although this one is a little more accessible. The classic title track and "Jealous Guy" are the two big hits but all the other tracks are great as well. He searches for answers in "Gimme Some Truth" and "How?". There's the anti-war "I Don't Wanna Be A Soldier" and the mellow "Oh My Love". "Oh Yoko!" sounds very catchy while "Crippled Inside" seems autobiographical. Then there's "How Do You Sleep?" (with George playing guitar), where he is clearly talking to Paul. The booklet features sleeve notes and some photos, one of which has John holding a pig by its ears-a parody of Paul's "Ram" cover. The packaging is okay but it's the kind that's prone to scratches on the disc but that's a minor complaint.

John continued to write great songs after The Beatles as this album attests.It is a winner from start to finish that every music fan should have. If you already have the 2000 version, you might not need this but it's still great to have.

"Imagine", by John Lennon, is the crown jewel of his solo recording career. Released 40 years ago, it still stands as his best and most popular album ever. The title track is to this day, an anthem for peace, and remains a classic rock radio staple. The album is filled with quality musicianship and songwriting. The song "How Do You Sleep", is an obvious attack on Paul McCartney, and the fact that George Harrison appears on the song, playing some of the most stinging solo guitar of his career, speaks volumes about the relationship between Paul, and the other Beatles during that time period. "Jealous Guy", is an apologetic ballad, that hits the listener to the core, and was later remade into a hit record by Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music. The song "Gimme Some Truth", is an all out attack on politicians and the government. The haunting "I Don't Want To Be A Soldier", is a Vietnam era anti-war song that effectively takes the listener to the plight of the draftee, and pending death. Strong stuff indeed. "Oh Yoko", is a fun catchy pop tune, that pays homage to his wife, that actually works as an answer to those who basically trashed her for being Mrs John Lennon. Along with George Harrison's "All Things Must Pass", I believe John Lennon's "Imagine", are the two greatest solo Beatle recordings ever made.

This is a product of a true genius! Not only do we have the song of the millenium ('Imagine') by the artist of the millenium but also an excellent assortment of acoustic and rock tracks. 'It's so hard', 'I don't want to be a soldier', 'Gimme some truth' and 'How do you sleep?' show Lennon's true characteristic grit with biting fuzzy guitar and equally fitting vocals. Emotional acoustic ballads like 'How?' and 'Oh my love' go nicely with the more jolly 'Jealous guy' and the folksy 'Crippled inside' and 'Oh Yoko!'. A great performance by John, Phil Spector and the Plastic Ono's and also by George Harrison who plays brillient slide guitar. Overall, an enlightening and cheerful album which follows nicely from the outstanding melancholy album 'Lennon/Plastic Ono band'. Nobody will ever rival John's lyrical abilities and certainly won't capture John's mood in quite the same way again. We miss you John.

Format: Audio CD
"Imagine" is the pinnacle of John Lennon's solo albums. Coming after the experiment "Two Virgins" and the primal scream motivated "Plastic Ono Band," it was his turn to classic, accessible melodies and multi-faceted look at his complex personality. The title track alone is one of the best songs ever written, an anthem to Utopian vision that still rings true some five decades later.

In the course of "Imagine's" eleven songs, you hear Lennon the hippie romanticist on the title track, the hard edged political commentator ("Gimme Some Truth," "I Don't Wanna Be a Soldier"), the artist battling self doubt ("How?," "Jealous Guy") and the lovesick puppy ("Oh! Yoko!"). Of course, there's also the infamous divorce from Paul McCartney, "How Do You Sleep," where he snarls "the best thing you done was "Yesterday"...the sound you make is muzak to my ears." George Harrison adds a wicked slide guitar, which left little doubt to whose side he was on at the time (he also added a great solo to "Gimme Some Truth").

Probably more than any of his other solo albums, "Imagine" was Lennon's statement of purpose. It was his very public dismissal of The Beatles, an openly obvious attempt to prove that he could make 'hits' on his own, and proof to himself that he was still on solid musical footing in the seventies. "Imagine" was a kiss goodbye to the sixties as well as John Lennon's look to a hopeful future.

Format: Audio CD
Plastic Ono Band was a deadend. A great album,but still a dead end. It's been said that IMAGINE was a retreat. Actually, it was a progression. Lennon found a way to combine the raw emotionalism of POB with his sentiment; his anger with his tenderness.
"Jealous Guy"(originally a contender for the white album under the title "Child of Nature" is one of the most sublime melodies Lennon has ever written and every bit as emotionally honest and naked as any song on POB. Lennon later dismissed IMAGINE as POB with sugar coating. It's much more than that--it is the vision of a man looking forward to the future and less on the pain of the past.
MIND GAMES and WALLS AND BRIDGES would reconfigure and rework much of this album(and, in the process, reducing its critical status)in less compelling ways. Although both those albums have their moments(particularly the MIND GAMES album), it is clear that after IMAGINE Lennon was treading water until the next big development appeared in the form of DOUBLE FANTASY.
Other reviewers have missed the maturity of the album and the emotional complexity of this work. POB was Lennon's missed adolescence. IMAGINE is the work of an adult--a contradicition in rock music at the time--and all the better for it.

Happy 70th Birthday John Lennon
It's strange how I feel about Lennon's murder - it was one of the saddest days of my life, yet I'd never met the man. In the preceding months, I'd heard about Double Fantasy, and Starting Over and Watching the Wheels were on the radio, and it was so comforting to hear his voice singing new... Read More
