The title track is for sure a bona fide classic. Heavenly strings actually helped significantly by a three note Lennon guitar solo which sounds like a string backing! A Masterpiece. The second track 'Tight As' is a cheeky upbeat and infectious Lennon rocker in the best tradition of 'Ballad Of John And Yoko' (Beatles 1969) and 'Crippled Inside' (1971). Perhaps the best song on the album, aside from perhaps the title track. The album becomes less brilliant for a while: 'Aisumasen' is a decent ballad but lacking the melody to be up there with Lennon's best ballad work. Despite a great guitar solo which allegedly was played by Lennon himself.
'One Day At A Time' is a regrettable attempt at a falsetto vocal ballad. Annoyoing female accompinament from a bunch of ladies callled Something Different. Well sorry Ladies you should not have bothered. You are annoying on this track. And even more so on 'Out The Blue' which is so obviously a great song. When you hear a track like this it does tempt one to think what Paul, George and Ringo could have added to this track to make it he bonafide classic it certainly is.Read more ›
