3.0 out of 5 stars Not top-notch Harrison but better than its reputation, 4 Feb. 2001
This review is from: Extra Texture (Audio CD)
By 1975 the music press and public had had enough of George Harrison (a fact he wryly aluded to on the sleeve of this album, captioning a picture of himself with the phrase ONOTHIMAGEN (Oh, not him again). A poorly received US tour accompanied by a decidedly sub-standard album (Dark Horse) left all but his most die-hard fans looking elsewhere. A year later came this offering. It was critically panned as weak and self-indulgent, but his stock was so low that anything short of a tour-de-force would have been. Listened to now we can hear it for what it is, a touching, if somewhat downbeat statement from a writer and musician who was never less than thoughtful. Extra Texture has no truly weak tracks such as marked his later solo work, and the better ones are excellent. 'You' is a George classic - a slice of pure pop. Others reveal their pleasures more slowly but 'The Answer's at the End' and 'Grey Cloudy Lies' both repay your patience. I find I come back to this album often. Three stars only because I know what he can do when he really tries!
