John Lennon, Yoko Ono - Double Fantasy Grammy Winner! RIAA Certified Multi-Platinum! Click here to see this CD at Amazon.com!

By Douglas Wolk

Strange as it seems now, the last album John Lennon released in his lifetime was intended as a comeback, or rather as a parting wave at retirement: "Watching the Wheels" and "Beautiful Boy" celebrate the joys he found outside the star system, and "(Just Like) Starting Over" is a slightly awkward rocker about rejoining the domestic world that's also sort of about rejoining the pop world. The studio-pro arrangements are a little too slick, but Lennon rarely sounded happier. Ono, whose songs alternate with his in a series of thematic diptychs, was taking a stab at channeling her artier impulses into pop and is generally less successful--her voice works in a context of art-weirdness, but not as well in conventional tunes. This 2000 remastered reissue is fleshed out with a demo of "Help Me to Help Myself" and Ono's solo version of "Walking on Thin Ice," which was recorded on the same day her husband was shot to death.

"Double Fantasy by the late, great John Lennon & his wife Yoko Ono is a great album even though it's his most commercial as a solo artist because it's more pop sounding than his previous albums since his former bandmate in the Beatles Paul McCartney could have recorded & released it in my opinion. I was 16 years old at the time when Double Fantasy was released & it was great to have John Lennon back in the spotlight again speaking as a dedicated Beatles fan but he had mellowed a bit as an artist which is why Double Fantasy is kind of disappointing. John Lennon is one of the greatest singers, songwriters & musicians of all time with few equals while his music as a member of the Beatles & as a solo artist will be listened for generations of fans to come even though I'm not too impressed with Double Fantasy."
