If you read the liner notes, and the lyrics, you might be slightly afraid to listen to this album. It is about fighting her sadness and lonliness and growing up amidst the horrors of war. Yoko compellingly compares her friends in New York struck with AIDS, to the sufferings of the people in Hiroshima. It is an album where she expells her demons, but manages to bring you up again to a safe shore...and show you some Great music/instrumentation, feeling and just about everything else with her son Sean Lennon's band IMA. It manages to have a Fresh alternative sound and keep the listener interested.
Very Yoko--Very reccomended! ^_^

A deeply moving, spiritual experience listening to this album. The final song Revelations is penetrating. If she wrote the words herself for that song without inspirtion from a written or verbal source, then in she is a guru in disguise.

I have every full length Yoko Ono cd available, and I love each and every album of hers. This album though, is perhaps one of my very favorites (if not my ultimate favorite). I recommend this to any fan of Yoko Ono's, and also to the ones that are wondering what her music is like.

Yoko Ono's popularity has gone up more and more within the past few years, because of the success with the songs they continue to remix, and I think it's great that more and more people are getting into her music. It's unbelievable that so many people dislike her, but don't know what her music and/or what her art is like. Yet, there are so many musicians out there that credit Yoko Ono for inspiring them, and now more and more people are getting inspired by her. GREAT ALBUM, HAUNTING SONGS, WONDERFUL LYRICS!

The first song I have ever heard from Yoko Ono was Where Do We Go From Here, and especially that song is my favorit.
This album is moving and good written and it touches my soul, Whit her shrill voice and depressed eyes she will always be the best. Warzone is about Yoko's childhood days from world war 2 really moving, Wouldnit is about wanted and wishing to be someone you never could be, Ask The Dragon is the supernatural song, Turned The Corner is about how fast but still long life could be, and it's also telling not too waste your life and you should respect and love everyone you love before they are gone, Where do We Go From Here is about the world today it's about how wrong we all are living. Buy this album and give your respect too a legend of music Yoko Ono.

I'm a big fan of Yoko, but even so, I think this might be my favorite. The version of "Revelation" on this album was my favorite. It's very complete. This album really shows off her wide range of musical ability. I like every track and give this my highest recommendation.

Yoko has always been pretty much a personal experience for me. Only Dylan has the ENERGY of Ono. I put my headphones on, as they are now as I listen to the "Rising" CD and comment on it, and there is this powerful, personal surge to a private place within. Won't try to explain it but I find it's something worth the sharing. So much insanity as the technological, Wall Street Age defines our direction as a people. For me "Rising" comments on the state of affairs currently moving us in a "strange" direction. The music is dark, scratchy, loud, searching for direction and tenderness. It seems to contain a gurgle of hope beneath and between the Rage! and the Grief! I would own and recommend this CD for the song "Revelations" alone. It would make a great Christmas card to those you love. I play it when I need to pause and re-energize myself. A good self-help mantra that speaks wisely and to the point. I sometimes wonder why people beat Yoko over the head, both personally and as an artist. Her personal life is none of our business. If you don't like her music don't play it. I personally look forward to more music from Yoko. After hearing the "Imagine" bonus track on "StarPeace" I would very much like to see a live CD.
