A light weight farewell,
By A Customer
This review is from: Double Fantasy (Audio CD)
It is a tragedy of popular music that John Lennon's final album was one he considered more of a 'hello' than a 'goodbye'. The album while not without its merits is somewhat lightweight. Lennon deliberately themed the album as a discussion between him and Yoko Ono. The downside of this was his rejection of rockier versions of his songs backed by the band Cheap Trick, their version of 'Losing You' brings the potential of the song to fruition. Watching the Wheels is Lennon's answer to those who asked what he had been doing for the last 4 years and while a good song it is somewhat light weight. Lennon remarked before his death that he wished he had produced a stronger sound sadly we will never get to hear what his next work may have been.
