4.0 out of 5 stars Original Riot Grrrl redeems herself. February 17, 2006
By ChrisWN
Format:Audio CD
I'm a bit surprised by how much negative reviews heaped on this release. First of all, if you're looking for a female vocalist to pop in your player to augment your Madonna, Britney Spears & Sheryl Crow collection, then you shouldn't even consider entering "yoko" into a search. If you like Yoko because you heard a house mix of one of her songs in a club, then you should also skip over this. However, if you'd like to consider listening to something else besides Sonic Youth, Lydia Lunch or Portishead, then this release is for you. This is Yoko's best work since her "Walking on Thin Ice" single (and unfortunately she hasn't duplicated this effort since its release). Yes this "EP", which actually runs longer than most albums, is divided between some reworkings (by Tricky, Beastie Boys, Ween, Thurston Moore, & Cibo Mato) from the Rising album and a long experimental piece that includes her son. Since I became familiar with this material before the album, I like this work better than the album versions, but I tend to like more experimental stuff. Yoko excels because she more readily captures raw emotion (i.e. in screaming vocals) than someone like Alanis Morrissette or Sleater-Kinney. The remixes here do run the range of trip hop to experimental guitar. The only short coming to this release (and why it gets 4 instead of 5 stars) is the fact that Perry Farrell's (Janes Addiction) haunting remix of "Kurushi", the best of all the remixes, is left off the CD & can only be found on the vinyl version.

3.0 out of 5 stars Yoko By Numbers July 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
In all honesty, I think the reason I don't particularly care for this one is due to the fact that is isn't a TRUE Yoko Ono album, but a representation of Yoko's music as seen through the eyes of other artists. For the most part, the tracks from 'Rising' seem to have lost the playfulness featured in their original forms.
The one exception is in the Ween remix of "Ask The Dragon" which adds somewhat of a comedic twist portraying Yoko as sort of a minister preaching about asking the members of the animal kingdom why they do what they do (don't know, I'm just doing it), while her congregation mutters "I understand, I understand".
The Cibo Matto remix of "Talking To The Universe" is a cheap attempt at trying to pass Yoko off as the Japanese Dr. Dre, possibly. This doesn't work at all! If the girls had covered the song, maybe it would have been easier to pull it off as sort of a bubblegum hip hop, but really, the song was fine as it appeared in it's original form. That in mind, don't even get me started on Tricky's "Where Do We Go From Here" or Thurston Moore's "Rising". The new track, "Franklin Summer" showcases Yoko in more of a free-form style similar to her early Plastic Ono Band Days.
The most impressive of the cuts on this compilation has to be the ABA Allstars "The Source", a musical collage featuring snippets of Yoko's music, mostly from her 'Fly' era recordings. Now THIS is a true tribute to the artist, and shows that Adam Yausch and Co. have really done their homework in Onoism 101.
The real noteworthy material on this disc lies in the enhanced portion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who said that Yoko Ono doesn't know music? August 15, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
this album surprised me. I didnt like Yoko's music at all, but this album completely changed my mind. Whether her other albums are too weird or not, or they are not your taste, you can listen to this one. maybe her music is not for majority, but it's worth trying. you should find out Yoko can do music or not yourself. and I garantee you will be surprised like me. she can. * I love her pictures and poems in her CD, enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Yoko's shows her alternative roots July 24, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
30 years of flack from ruthless Beatles fans and critics have not been able to obscure the fact that this 65-year old avant-garde rock performer is probably the most influential of her genre. Following a decade outside the limelight, she resurfaced in 1995 with the ambitious "Rising". Due to the alternative rock revolution that exploded into the mainstream some 6 years after her hiatus from rock music (which had had Yoko unsuccesfully trying to court the pop charts), her return to the abrasive style of her early 70s work suddenly sounded fresh and inventive. It is true that some Yoko fans have been exaggerating the importance of this woman in sculpting the post-punk sound, and sometimes she censors her intriguing ideas in favour of more conventional rock phrasing, but she still has a remarkable vision.
Now, 4 cutting-edge artists have had their crack at displaying just how comparable Yoko's music is to the alternative rock scene. Cibo Matto, members of the Beastie boys, Ween, Tricky and Thurston Moore transform tracks from "Rising" (although the Beasties take their cue from her 1971 "Fly" album) into styles suiting their own, yet maintaining the Ono sound. At times, it feels a tad contrived, as when Cibo Matto add Riot Grrl-esque raps to "Talking to the Universe", but it frequently shows a link between her notorious 70-s work (incorporating primal screams and atonal soundscapes) and the genre-bending, melting pot philosophies of 90s music. The Thurston Moore remix is particularly inspired, though very few will find the strength to endure it.
