Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 223/500!
Utilizing updated remixes supervised by Yoko Ono herself, classic tracks such as "Imagine" and "Jealous Guy" are unveiled with sparkling detail and spectacular resolution. Listeners will literally surrender to the delicacy of "Oh My Love" and rally to protest anthems such as "Give Me Some Truth" and "I Dont Want To Be A Soldier" as forgotten idealism is rekindled. From ferocity to fragility, MFSLs mastering accompanies and refines the wide emotional range and sheer beauty that comprises Phil Spector's tasteful production of John Lennons Imagine.
"After the primal-scream therapy of Plastic Ono Band Lennon softened up on his second solo album. There is still the stinging "Gimme Some Truth" and Lennon's evisceration of Paul McCartney, "How Do You Sleep?" both featuring George Harrison on guitar. But there is also the aching soul of "Jealous Guy" and the irresistible "Oh Yoko!" Imagine is self-consciously luminescent, pointedly embraceable. Lennon said of the title track, "Anti-religious, anti-nationalistic, anti-conventional, anti-capitalistic, but because it is sugar-coated it is accepted. . . . Now I understand what you have to do. Put your political message across with a little honey." - www.rollingstone.com
