5.0 out of 5 stars A Working Class Hero's Primal Scream, A Rock Classic..........., 25 Sep 2010
This review is from: Plastic Ono Band (Audio CD)
John Lennon's first solo album proper (if you discount his two virgins era collaborations with Yoko)is for me a classic rock record, stark in it's approach,bare in it's arrangements Plastic ono band or as i call it the primal
album is the journey of a artist through his own personal hell set to music and of course one of the songs in this set is one of my all time favourite songs:"working Class Hero". Ive always maintained that Lennon never needed to sit down and write
his Autobiography,He'd already done this and cotinued to do so in his music.And this,His primal album was a fascinating chapter as he confronted Demon's haunting him since childhood.He Even used the lyrics in the song "God" not only to debunk
everything in sight,but also to consign his membership of the greatest band ever
to the past(better to put it into a song than a press release with the album eh Macca?)Yes the dream was really over,but the 70's had only just begun and John
was moving on.Bearing in mind the subject matter of this album it's not always
easy to listen to (My Mummy's Dead is particularly harrowing)but despite this and
with the rawness of the songs, Lennon's gift of writing such emotional material
is there upfront for all to hear.For anyone remotely interested in Lennon or The
Beatles I'd recommend you invest in a copy,now of course for further reference you
can watch both the lennon naked and nowhere boy dvd's and read Arthur Janov's book
Primal scream to further your understanding of one of John Lennon's finest moments
on record.Of course in the years between then and his untimely death John Lennon wrote many more chapters of what was an amazing musical autobiography.
