3.0 out of 5 stars "Best of...", well not exactly. 17 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
On this album, a 19-track sampler of the 6 CD Onobox, we find many highlights than one would expect of a Yoko Ono "best of" package. The title track, her biggest hit to date, along with the dance club favorite "Hell in Paradise" are featured here, as well as other fine moments one would expect such as the singles "Death of Samantha", "Midsummer New York", "Woman Power", "No, No, No", and the arguably double A-side "Kiss, Kiss, Kiss". Other fine moments from her solo albums are included as well, but in some cases, not the ones that do her justice as a singer or songwriter.
Most notably missing is "Move on Fast", Yoko's finest rock record to date. The track was featured on Onobox in a wonderfully remixed version and very well should have been considered for this compilation. Also missing are the beautiful insightive ballads "Run, Run, Run", and "I Want My Love to Rest Tonight". It is obvious why freeform jams such as "Why" or "Don't Worry Kyoko" were not included, since the album is trying to promote a more commercially accessible Yoko, but by doing so limits the depiction of the wide range of musical styles Yoko has covered during the course of her career. Actually, other than "Woman Power", her 'Feeling the Space' album has no other representation. Again, "Run, Run, Run" was a worthwhile choice for this collection as was the album's closer, "Men, Men, Men", but nonetheless; the compilation features only the one track.
I might recommend this disc as somewhat of an introduction to Yoko's music, however it doesn't come highly recommended. A better recommendation would be 'Approximately Infinite Universe'. This album was Yoko's transition from the Avant-Garde to what was to later become Alternative Rock, and showcases Yoko in many aspects.

4.0 out of 5 stars strong from start to finish 2 Nov 2002
By Jack
Format:Audio CD
Although the previous reviewer may be correct in stating this compilation is too narrow in focus, it still provides a generous slice of Ono's music for the casually interested. Having been a long time fan of the song Walking On Thin Ice, I was pleasantly surprised by how strong Ono's more accessible music could be. There are any number of great tracks here, and in the decade since this album's release (my God! has it been that long?!) I still play it occasionally - you can't ask for much better than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars get a life, folks 10 Jan 2006
By H. Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
c'mon, duane. why do you have the time to write 1-star reviews for albums you probably haven't even heard? jump on the bandwagon; "yoko sucks." actually, i quite like her. sure, she can be difficult, but she also can be an acquired taste. if you don't like her, you're not going to like her. reviews are superfluous. don't bother reading them - including this one.

however, if you are willing to experiment and are truly a fan of alt-rock (not the green day swill that duane seems to prefer, thus setting his age at around 9), try it out. buy it used. sell it to someone else if you don't like it.

but you WILL have a reaction, which is the point of music, isn't it? you might hate it. so be it. you might love it. good for you! you might say, "huh?" ok, so you took a chance.

here's a dare; buy john coltrane's "blue trane" and "interstellar space." most fans of jazz would like the first and hate the last. but if you have an open mind, you might hear something of value in both.

so to quote someone familiar:

"if it don't feel right, you don't have to do it. just leave a message on the phone and tell [duane] to screw it."

peace out, ono sideball.

5.0 out of 5 stars The New Summit, New Peak, New Acme, New Zenith 12 Nov 2003
By J. Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yoko Ono's greatest hits album serves to showcase her attainment of the latest apex of female musical/vocal artistry, the current reigning Diva Superior. Earlier plateaus in the art -- Garland, Streisand, Sills, LuPone, Judy Collins -- have now been surpassed, completely eclipsed, by this dynamite performer whose body of work is unparalleled in the history of music. This is the last "female vocalist" CD you will ever have to buy, as you will immediately fall in love with its magical tunes and mystical lyrics (brought to us via the incomparable instrument of Yoko's voice).
By this today. Value it, cherish it, love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better and better 16 Mar 2000
By Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought this record about six months ago and I've listened to it at least every week since. The song "Walking on thin ice" IS indeed a masterpeace, there is no question about it. This is truly a fresh sound. AND Yoko's musik grows on you, believe me, I like it more and more. If you just keep an open mind it can change your life! I use "thin ice" as my very own "theme song"

3.0 out of 5 stars This doesn't do Yoko justice. 11 Sep 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This was the first thing by Ono I had ever heard. Aside from her work on Milk and Honey and Double Fantasy, she was totally foreign to me; and thankfully I got a pleasant suprise listening to this.

As someone who has also heard other Ono work, however, this does poorly as a "best of" collection. A lot of the weaker tracks (You're the One, Woman Power, Sleepless Night, Midsummer New York) could be replaced with the likes of Move On Fast, Approximately Infinite Universe, Listen The Snow Is Falling, Hard Times Are Over, and maybe It Happened (and Toilet/Telephone Piece for humor). And that's just what had been in existance before '92. If this was released today, it really needs tracks from her "Rising" album and the title track should be replaced with the remix that hit #1 in 2003.

For an introduction to Yoko Ono, I reccomend Double Fantasy or Milk and Honey since it also has Lennon tracks on it that are worth the money. For an introduction to solo Ono, just get Approximately Infinite Universe or Season of Glass.
