Here's a tip, Delete all 7 of Yoko's songs and then listen to all 7 of John's songs and you will consider it a classic!,
This review is from: Double Fantasy Stripped Down (Audio CD)The only reason I gave this album a 5/5 was because of John's brilliance. All of his 7 songs are just amazing but then you come to Yoko's and she is just dreadful. I feel that if she didn't contribute to this album then it could have been his best! Every song John created on this album was an instant hit for me but Yoko just completely ruined it!
So I'm just going to review John's songs from now on:
1. (Just like) Starting Over 4.5/5 Brilliant opener to an album and it sets the tone immediately. Shows that John recovered brilliantly from his hiatus
3. Cleanup Time 5/5 For me this is just a genius song and the way he just sings alongs effortlessly then he goes into the brilliant raspy Lennon voice in the chorus, "Cleeeeanup tiiiimmme"
4. I'm Losing You 4/5 Shows so much passion in this song especially in the part where he sings, "What the hell am I supposed to DDOOOO!!"
7. Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy) 5/5 Brilliant tribute to his son Sean here. Lyrics are brilliant and his voice is just admirable
8. Watching the Wheels 5/5 I honestly could not give this song anymore praise (well I could but..)Lyrics are once again showing his amazing ability to write classics. Lyrics suggest that he might be reflecting over his 5 years hiatus
10. Woman 5/5 Really shows that he cares for everybody in this world. Acknowledging the feelings of not just Yoko but all women around the world and how they cope with the world
12 Dear Yoko 4.5/5 I think this really shows that Yoko was good for something, inspiring John to write more genius lyrics. By the sounds of it, he is sending a message to Yoko saying that he will never have another "Lost Weekend". Brilliant ending to a quite exquisite and unique album.
So once again in my opinion, this would have been one hell of a comeback if it weren't for a certain someone
John Lennon's contribution to music is just out of this world, beyond belief, unexplainable......He was clearly the best out of the fab four as he shows numerous times in his brilliant lyrics and passionate vocals throughout his short solo career
Rest in Peace to a legend who is one of a kind

I only bought this record for the Yoko tracks, don't presume everyone feels the same way as yourself. Her work is wonderful, I don't want to be mean, but Lennon is overrated and his voice is not pleasant. The Yoko tracks are an absolute delight, but I haven't revisited the Lennon tracks as they don't interest me at all.
