Nothing like. Well, something like- but certainly not that opening number. When was the last time you heard an album open like this- let alone an album by a 76 year old?
The album changes gear often, and sometimes dramatically, as Yoko wrestles with ideas of her lovers, legacy, life, and oncoming death. Stand out tracks are the danceable "The Sun is Down," the psychedelic "Calling," the hard hitting "Between My Head And The Sky," and the dreamy "Feel The Sand."
The album readies for the close with a trio of songs led by piano- an instrument that weighs heavily in Yoko's life and home. Here Yoko seems her most open and contemplative. As she invokes images of shuddering coughs, invisible walls, and those she'll leave behind- she also asks, "why is this life so beautiful?"
The last track on the album is a sweet surprise, and reminds us that Yoko is at heart an earnest, funny, soul.
By the way, be sure to check out Ono's collaboration with Basement Jaxx, "Day Of The Sunflowers (We March On)." It's on the Basement Jaxx album SCARS, and it's crazy kooky brilliant.
This CD isn't for everyone,just fans of this type of music that Yoko Invented HERSELF years ago that help spark the punk rock movement.
In 1981 I bought Yoko's album,"Season of Glass," and was blow away by some of her songs,produced by Phil Spector,Especially the first cut,"Goodbye Sadness,about her late GREAT husband."This record has that same feeling.If you are a fan,your going to love this CD,It's getting alot of notice and awards.
it reminds me in places of talking heads' "remain in light"--propulsive, unpredictable, a creative mash-up of genres and rhythms. not everything is up my alley. the songs i least care for are "healing" and "memory of footsteps", which are a little too twee and precious for me. favorites: the title track, "waiting for the d-train", "the sun is down", "hashire hashire".
i think this will end up on my list of favorite albums of 2009.
