Product Description

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. --Douglas Wolk

While Double Fantasy may be better known for what happened 3 weeks after it's release, I think it's a great cd that would've stood the test of time regardless.
I am tired of reading constant Yoko-bashing in the reviews of this cd. I am a fan of both John and Yoko, but Yoko is definately one of my top 10 favorite female artists of all time. People who bash her DON'T GET HER. If you appreciate the works of somebody like David Bowie or Prince (both I think are awesome by the way), I think you will have an easier time "getting" Yoko. DO NOT COMPARE HER WITH THE BEATLES!! DO NOT COMPARE HER WITH PAUL McCARTNEY AND WINGS!! She is her own style of music and someone expecting her to sound like The Beatles are setting themselves up for a fall. This is the most mainstream she ever got. Yoko's 1980-1984 output was her best ever IMO. Tho I also enjoy her recent forays into dance music. She doesn't have a good singing voice, but any Yoko fan can tell you that she is not exactly supposed to be a Streisand/Celine type. Walking On Thin Ice (which is a bonus track on this) is an brilliant underrated gem that FINALLY got the recognition it deserved last year when it went to #1 on the dance singles chart, and it earned that. It's a great record that from John's very last recording session on that fateful day in Dec 1980.
John had three smash hits off this album. Starting Over is a timeless record that still sounds fresh 24 years later. Woman is a gorgeous love song. And the other songs are great too.
I don't think enough words can be said about what a shame this album (along with Milk And Honey) closed the chapter on one of rock's greatest artists. Double Fantasy showed the world that John and Yoko (who successfully proved that DF was no fluke with the Season Of Glass and It's Alright albums that followed) were both ready to take the 1980's by storm.

First, anyone who thinks that the Yoko stuff on this album is bad should try to realize that Yoko was on a lot of John's stuff before this album. This is nothing new. By the time this album came out we had had a lot of Yoko. Not that we all dug it but we grew used to her and John's music etc. etc. So... When this album came out I was thrilled to see a new John and Yoko album. Because they were a pair, not two seperate people. Anyone that loved John's music for what it was and understood his love for Yoko realized that that was a part of John. This is in a sense a perfect record. John loved Yoko, Yoko loved John. Period. Do you think that John wanted or cared to put out the perfect "Beatle" sounding record? His life is reflected on this album and Yoko was the center of his Universe. Period. Sean also. This is a masterpiece because it is real. If you don't like it that's cool too... but one thing for sure it's way John felt at the time. Is this album re-mixed? I hope not. (I don't have this re-release) Haven't heard this version yet. I hated the others "Mind Games", "Plastic Ono Band". I must say that Yoko did have bad judgement on those projects. Why re-paint the Mona Lisa?

Well I must say that I have had this album for about 2 months and never listened to it all the way through until just now. At first I had to skip through all of the Yoko Ono songs because they were just too 80's sounding and corny. After listening to it all the way through with headphones I have a totally new opinion about the album. Frankly I say its one of Lennon's best. And I also have to give Yoko her credit because after all of the jokes I have heard over the years about how bad she sings, I have to say she is definately an artist. I laughed out loud for awhile hearing her vomit on key (you have to listen to find out which song) and I think she is really underrated as an artist. On her songs I think that the music is ahead if its time as far as the effects go, and they definately grew on me. As far as Sir John, well I love everything that he does. I learned that this was his final album before he was murdered and this album is just one more reason why Mark David Chapman should burn in hell for robbing the world of a true visionary. Give Yoko's songs a chance because after all if John wanted it on the album then its good enough for me. Listen to it with headphones and please drop the Yoko stereotypes. Also, some of the guitar solos are killer and the mood of some of the songs is pretty much out there. Give it a go and if you disagree then write your own review!

I was given this album as a joke gift at a neighborhood Christmas party--a white elephant gift, you know. I was ecstatic, not realizing that, not only did the album include some of John Lennon's greatest songs, but also several tracks by Yoko Ono.
I recall the first time I listened to it. Things started nicely with Starting Over and Woman. And then things went decidedly wrong. A wild, screeching voice was heard emanating from my CD player. Had I put in more than one CD and was the player on random play? Retrieving the cover I discovered to my shock that there were several Ono songs on the album. Oh NO! was right. It became clear to me why everyone laughed at the Christmas party when I was so enthusiastic about getting Double Fantasy as my gift.
I promptly deposited Double Fantasy in the garbage and went out and bought The John Lennon Collection which features the best Lennon tracks from Double Fantasy. If you are considering buying this dreadful album I would encourage you to check out The John Lennon Collection instead.
