Sister Morphine meets Pink Floyd!
The title track of Yoko's 1971 masterpiece, this song is a beautiful ache. Turning the expansive optimism of John's "Across the Universe" inward, she describes a young woman's internal war with addiction and loneliness.
Yoko writes amazing lyrics. They are clean and clear, almost haiku in their ablity to nail the essence. She has few rivals in Rock for writing simple lines that are so complex and provacative.
Supporting her are the New Yok band, Elephant's Memory. The soaring guitar lines, which are reminescent of David Gilmour's arcing ache, are the work of Wayne Gabriel. While John was brilliant at skronky punk and grungy blues chords, Gabriel brought a sympathetic beauty to the varied styles on this album that expanded the pallette. Highly overlooked.
This double album is her "Blonde On Blonde" or "White Album". It has an amazing variety of pop styles and poignant lyrics, and is well worth the purchase!
