I had to write this review after reading the only review on this album.This album (Lennon Tracks NOT YOKO!)is a fantastic album by a man at forty years old looking to the future and writing about it.Songs like Starting Over and Watching The Wheels to Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)shows a man reflecting on life and how good it is.To say this album is mediocre is down right ignorant.This album is a great addition to your lennon collection and a must have!!!!!!

This album was given to me on record as a birthday present on my eleventh birthday back in 1981.I've had it ever since.Sadly(thanks to Mark David Chapman)it turned out to be John Lennon's final masterpeice.I just love the way John and Yoko share lead vocals throughout the album.It's a big part of what makes this album special.John's emotional singing style and smash hits (Just Like)Starting Over and Woman,combined with Yoko's own unique singing style.I pity Yoko after she sang Hard Times Are Over,if you know what I mean.Regardless,this album has to be regarded as a classic.

John Lennon is one of the greatest writer/musicians/humanitarians of our time !!! this album was made at a time in John's life when he had finally found himself and was finally at peace...very alive and fun music from John and Yoko. its hard not to be sad when you hear this because I remember when this album was climbing the charts and shortly after John Lennon was killed...quite emotional album for me both happy and sad.

If Yoko's tunes had been left off this album I would've given it five stars. But since it's a John/Yoko collaboration- I'll give it three.
God, I miss John Lennon. I miss his irreverent humor and lacerating wit. He'll be gone twenty-five years come 2005, hard to believe! I wonder what he would think of our modern 21st century world?
McCartney gave us TONS of solo music back in the '70's. Do you remember any of it? Sure, a few hits here and there. John didn't leave us with much music during that decade, the final decade before he died. I'm sure he never thought he'd be "checking out" of Planet Earth at the age of 40. But the music John gave us in the '70's, though occasionally tedious, always burned brightly with his heart-felt soul. John's music in the last decade of his life was always extremely personal. He wasn't afraid to show the ugly along with the good. The scars along with the beauty.
John's songs on "Double Fantasy" are among his best. I do wish he had recorded an ENTIRE album of just HIS songs. But what can ya do? Let's be glad he put these gems onto tape for us.
It's difficult to listen to this album without a lump in your throat. You thank God that this great singer/songwriter existed to bring joy to us. While cursing the fates for his death right at the time when he was coming out of a five-year hibernation. John, in his last interviews, was enjoying life and music-making again. Who knows what wonderful songs he may have given the world if his life hadn't been snuffed out by such a cipher as Mark David Chapman!

Now here's a perfect example of why John and Yoko shouldv'e
kept off of their own respective albums.Yoko's voice isn't as strong as Johns and since all his songs here are classics,they
stand heads and tails above her's in that aspect too.What should
have been done is to have had combined John's songs from the
'Milk & Honey' sessions with his on this and do the same with
Ono like the couple had earlier in their career on their
first group of solo records-seperate but related.Otherwise this
is prime stuff!

I'd just like to share two stories as told by Albert Goldman is his fascinating biography of John Lennon -- one general, one specific to this album.
First, Goldman tells how Yoko Ono was incapable of singing in tune or in time. Hence, this necessitated her recording innumerable takes of each of her songs, then leaving the producer to splice a usable "take" together, the logic being that she couldn't sing the same note off-key EVERY time!
In the second story Goldman explains how the strange programming of DOUBLE FANTASY came about. Basically Yoko Ono used to release her own solo albums at the same time Lennon released his because, as a publicity-monster (her only real talent) she felt that the attention garnered by Lennon for his projects would help her sales. Unfortunately for her, this never worked, and her albums never sold, regardless of when they were released.
So, for the DOUBLE FANTASY-project Ono talked Lennon into a sort of conceptual marriage "dialogue," where their songs would alternate with every track. It was a diabolically ingenious way of forcing people to listen to Yoko Ono songs, whether they wanted to or not!
I remember when this album came out and friends complained of having to stand by the stereo to listen to it so that they'd be able lift the turntable arm to skip over each Yoko Ono song as it came up. Fortunately, today we have programmable CD players!

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.
