3.0 out of 5 stars Dont write it off!, 25 Dec 2008
This review is from: Mind Games (Audio CD)
Im not gonna compare it to other lennon or beatles albums but take the album on its own merits. If you do you will find some great songs here. But there are also songs here that sound like they were just knocked off pretty quick without any real effort.

Title track - Brilliant. Cant go wrong here.

Tight A$ - Again a great track. Sounds like John in the Reeperbahn pounding out rock n roll.

Aisumasen - Not bad at all. Nice bluesy ballad and John sings well. So far so good.

One Day - Poor. Probably knocked off in a few minutes. Lennon used to be able to do that but the difference was the songs were still good and he also had the rest of the beatles to contribute and tidy up afterwards. Hit the skip button.

Bring on the Lucie - Slightly better than the last song but still not great. Good message but musically its pretty boring.

Next song is mute.

Intuition - poor. the irony is that John's intuition and instinct for a good tune had left him.

Out the Blue - okay song but nothing special. john is running out of ideas but lucky for us he still has a few left for the end of the album.

Only People - I really like this song. He gets his message across well like in Give Peace a Chance. Line of the album in this "We dont want no Pig Brother scene". A fun song with a vintage lennon message. What more do you want?

I Know - The best song on the album and one of my favourite john solo songs. Using a similar riff to ive got a feeling, lennon weaves a beautiful tune full of zest for life and love for his wife. The Lennon magic is right here folks.

You Are Here - sleepy song. nothing special.

Meat City - a great rocker. great guitars and vocals.

6 good songs. You'd be hard pressed to find an album today with 6 good songs on it. Lennon's magic does appear on this album so thats really good enough reason to buy it.

YES! "I Know (I Know)" is a truly fantastic song; I've loved it for 35 years. "Nobody loves you..." is the only other Lennon solo track that competes. It's up there with his best Beatles stuff, IMHO. Universally overlooked. Are they deaf? But hey; who cares what they think; we can listen to it whenever we like; what a gift!
