Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 23/500!
Digitally remastered from original mixes by Yoko Ono and engineers Allan Rouse at Abbey Road Studios and George Marino at Avatar Studios in New York.
Introspective and painfully personal, Plastic Ono Band is an extremely
courageous solo debut for a man who was already subjected to an unprecedented
level of public scrutiny. Yet there is no conflict or compromise here between
art and commerce - Lennon clearly serves his muse. Where as the Beatles sang of
a pending social revolution, on Plastic Ono Band, Lennon unleashes one.
"Also known as the "primal scream" album, referring to the painful therapy that gave rise to its songs, Plastic Ono Band was Lennon's first proper solo album and rock & roll's most self-revelatory recording. Lennon attacks and denies idols and icons, including his own former band ("I don't believe in Beatles," he sings in "God"), to hit a pure, raw core of confession that feels like reality, however agonizing, and, in its echo-drenched, garage-rock crudity, is years ahead of punk." - www.rollingstone.com
