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.Read more ›
