Finally getting her due,
This review is from: Approximately Infinite Univers (Audio CD)Now that dozens of the annointed keepers of the groove have come out to praise her work as an inspiration, Yoko Ono is getting some long overdue respect for her music (even the NY Times praises her visual work).
And while the songs on this double album are probably not the songs that those groovers have in mind, this is one of the most beautifully heartfelt musical statements I've ever heard. Nearly perfect in its obstensibly rough edges, each song reveals a raw and frank view of Ono's heart that threatens to tear out the listener's own. It doesn't have much of the tone-and-noise-for-its-own-exploratory-sake of her early releases. Here, her voice works to express sense and emotion squarely within a classic rock tradition.
This is Yoko at her most accessible and maybe her most beautiful. If you've ever wondered why people hate her so much, buy this and come to your own conclusions. A must for everyone's record collection.
