Product Description

This CD is an out of print collectible! It is the 1997 release. Still sealed.

From the Label

Starpeace was her answer to the Reagan Star Wars campaign and for it she corralled Bill Laswell to conjur up his studio magic. She did get back her cutting edge with songs like "Cape Clear," and "Hell In Paradise," but some of her pointed anthem songs fall flat -- such as "Starpeace" and "Sky People." But her fans love this album to bits, all of it, and are rejoicing that they can now get it on CD.

Many believe Yoko's "Starpeace" is her worst album to date... and though this may be true it is far from horrible. It actually features some very good pieces of music such as "Rainbow Revelation" and the superb "Hell in Paradise". But the true gem here is Yoko's rendition of John's "Imagine". She sings the song with such passion and authority I was nearly knocked to the floor with shock. I was expecting her cover to sound cheap and maybe even unbearable in comparison to John's but this is not the case at all. It is a NECESSITY to any yoko fan. All in all, this is the accessible pop-writer Yoko, and it doesn't always work... but its still a must have for a yoko collection.

i absolutely love this album. i know people have called this work pretentious, boring, and "groteqsue", but i think it is another excellent work of art from Mrs. Lennon/Ono. However, i wasn't completely satisfied with the new remixes that Rykodisc did. In fact, i was disappointed. i prefer the cassette and vinyl version over the CD. They just sound so much more together and beautiful, whereas i think the new release sounds too digital and somewhat tinny. So, i guess i'm giving the 5 star rating to the original release. (Same difference.) Anyway, my favorite song on this is "Hell In Paradise", a song with clever lyrics and beautiful instrumentation. Yoko's voice sounds great on this song, as she usually does. "I Love All Of Me" is a song that is upbeat and pleasing to the ear with a catchy reggae section. "Children Power" is another favorite, (i like to annoy my brother when singing it) with an awesome chorus of back-up singers. "Rainbow Revelation" is an uplifting number that says "bless you for what you are", and can make you feel good when down. Plus, it features a beautiful electric sitar part played by Eddie Martinez that gives the song a "world music" touch. Other favorites are the avant-garde "Cape Clear", which features some of the best lyrics and music on the whole album; "It's Gonna Rain (Living On Tiptoe"), with a wonderful reggae touch by the duo Sly and Robbie; and "Sky People", with a great electric guitar part. The Rykodisc CD rerelease does offer one advantage, though: the bonus live version of John Lennon's "Imagine", sung by Yoko on her 1986 Starpeace tour.Read more ›

"Hell In Paradise" is one of those brilliant Ono songs that I never tire of hearing. The lyrics are poignant. The voice is powerful. The arrangements are cutting edge. The beat has a building momentum. "I Love All Of Me" and "Children Power" belong on some pre-teen childrens' television show. They don't fit on this Cd or any serious Ono collection. "Rainbow Revelation" when compared to "Revelations" (a re-make on the "Rising" Cd) highlights where Ono was during this period and where she usually was. "Rainbow Revelation" has this great seed of potential but pales when you hear the almost Biblical re-make on "Rising". If "StarPeace" is Yoko being "hip" then "Rising" is Ono as a mature and serious artist. And this is where "StarPeace" fails. The next song "The King Of The Zoo" is perhaps the worst song Yoko ever released. I can't listen to it. "Remember Raven" remains one of the stronger songs on this CD. "Cape Clear" almost exceeds "Hell In Paradise" in its being one of her most brilliant and cutting edge songs. This song reminds me of "Walking On Thin Ice" in that it seems more autobiographical and introspective than her other songs during this period. The backing vocals soar and help to make this song stand out from the others."Sky People" has a great beat and message. Long after my record player broke down and I hadn't heard this song for several years, it continued to play in my head. I was disappointed that it wasn't included on "OnoBox" (since I couldn't play the LP anymore). Glad to have it on Cd! "You And Me" is probably a song to Sean. Sweet as a mother's song to her child but....Read more ›

Is it a normal practice to dinge up Yoko Ono albums or something? This is the second album i've gotten by Yoko where the cover was somehow dinged up. (This one had a corner clipped off of the jacket, and the It's Alright album i got from somewhere else had this cut at the top, wedging through it.) Maybe it's a conspiracy.

Everyone has an opinion on Yoko Ono--usually a negative one that has nothing to do with her music. Have these people who make it a point to negatively review ALL of her CDs actually LISTEN to the entire length of a single song, or are they simply conforming to the popular opinions of others that she simply cannot sing? Yoko's music was far ahead of its time and, whether anyone likes it or not, her vocal style and musical approach has influenced many of today's artists. Starpeace is Yoko at her finest, with punk beats of the 80's and a political consciousness of world peace. From the amazing Hell In Paradise, to the catchy Sky People, to the self-affirming I Love All of Me, Yoko's production, voice and arrangement of her songs are first-rate. her bonus live track of John lennon's Imagine is interpreted with both passion and respect for the man who loved her. Both ONOBOX (an awesome 6-disc retrospect of her impressive career) and (her best album) Rising are currently out of print. Starpeace, therefore, will permit you to open your mind to Yoko Ono, an incredible poet, artist, singer/songwriter.
