Parts of "Plastic Ono Band" still sound ok to me despite the mewling self-pity, but every other Lennon solo album is pretty much a big pile of suck.
Shaved Fish is pretty good (being a comp and all), but I also like Walls & Bridges quite a bit (it was one of the first solo-Beatle LPs I bought a a kid, so it has some good memories for me).
(It would be a challenge for me to get through his other solo LPs though...)
Let me get beatarded for a minute. I hope Walls And Bridges gets the super deluxe treatment like Imagine. On bootleg, there is a mixing session playback tape with almost all the album tracks as they were before the strings and horns and other overdubs were added. It'd be great to hear those versions in high quality.
Ask any musician/band about STeVE. Many of them would answer: Who the hell are them?
I could never understand, having the heard the Double Fantasy tracks that Rick Nielsen and Bun E. Carlos played on, why Lennon didn't do the whole album that way... gritty and rocking.
Yoko seemed to think that Cheap Trick, a band who were by then on their fifth good-selling and well-regarded album, were trying to get famous by backing a man who had ceased to be famous of his own volition several years earlier.
