Given the task of somehow following up the critical and commercial triumph of "all things must pass" George Harrison seemed to crawl back into his insecurity blanket. Despite all his best intentions the critics lambasted his efforts as preachy (which indeed it is somewhat) and weak (which it is certainly not) A much more spare sound to his previous piece this album contains some of his finest songs, with the highlights being the beautiful restrained "be here now" "the light that changed the world" and the lovely closer "that is all" After a few listens it has to be admitted that this is indeed a really good album.
My only quibble is that this cries out for a remastering reissue, and they could add the "B" sides "deep blue" and "miss O'Dell" so come on EMI - get to it!

Living In The Material World (1973.) George Harrison's second solo album.
In 1970 the Beatles split up and their solo careers began. Everyone probably knew ahead of time that John Lennon and Paul McCartney were destined for great things in their solo careers, but it's doubtful anyone knew just how successful George Harrison's would be. His solo debut album, All Things Must Pass, took the world by storm, and showed them that the so-called "quiet Beatle" actually had a lot to say. Following his classic Concert For Bangladesh, he released his second solo album, Living In The Material World. Read om for my review.
The album kicks off with Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth), the song on the album that everybody knows. This is one of George's biggest solo hits, and an extremely catchy song. It's only proper that this song receives all the credit it does. Although it's really the only big hit on the album, the other material is no less excellent. Track number two, Sue Me Sue You Blues is George's message to Paul McCartney. It's not nearly as cold and cruel as John Lennon's How Do You Sleep?, though. It's an underrated little tune. Third is The Light That Has Lighted The World. Admittingly, this tune is a little harder to get into than the others on the album, but if you give it some time to grow on you, you'll grow to love it. Don't Let Me Wait Too Long is another excellent pop rocker, probably the most Beatles-sounding thing on the album. More underrated good stuff from George. Who Can See It is one of George's most underrated solo tunes of all - you really must hear it to be able to fully appreciate it. In the title track, George combines a plethora of different musical stylings, which make for a rather interesting tune.

Beautiful music from a beautiful guy. It's a shame there a folks

All the tracks shine. Don't succumb to your jaded inner cynic.
Buy this lovely offering.

I just bought this album and I must say, it's worth the money. Although, I have worn out "All Things Must Pass", I thought I give this a try. I like mostly every song on this album; I didn't care for the title track. This album's kind of preachy, nothing wrong with that. I only have two Harrison's albums; this one and "All Things Must Pass". I like "ATMP" better than this one, maybe because I've listened to it so much I've adjust to it, I had to listen to this album a few times before adjusting to it. One of my fav. songs is "Sue Me, Sue You Blues. I'm not putting this album down, I love George Harrison, and his music it's a great album. Now my next Harrison album will be "Dark Horse". This album is a must have for all George Harrison fans.

Living In The Material Word is, to me, the musical essence of what George Harrison was all about. Unfortunately, it also provided a handful of ammunition to Harrison's detractors and inaugurated George's status as a musical piñata for the critics. Rolling Stone did give it a good review, though.
George was definitely on a role during this time, and Living In The Material World was a commercial blockbuster. But LITMW was quickly forgotten, which was (and is) undeserved. Some of Harrison's most beguiling melodies and his most soulful slide playing are present on this masterpiece, and his often-criticized vocals are in great shape. But it would be a mistake to assume that "Living In..." makes for an immediately infectious listening experience; many of the best songs require repeated listening to be fully appreciated. Frankly, it took me a few years to fully appreciate the beauty & mastery of these songs.
"Give Me Love" is the song here that everybody knows. Criticized in some quarters for being "preachy" and redundant, it actually boasts an attractive melody and some inspired guitar work.
"Sue Me, Sue You Blues" is the sole diatribe on LITMW. Apparently aimed at Paul McCartney, it's not as nasty as Lennon's "How Do You Sleep" or as goofy as Ringo's "Early 1970". The dobro work on the tune is excellent, and George really doesn't come across as vindictive, merely resigned.
"The Light That Has Lighted The World" is one of those tunes that took me forever to appreciate. To those who don't like introspective tunes, it comes across as dull as dishwater. But if one relaxes & allows the Zen-like melody some room to breathe, it can be very therapeutic.
"Don't Let Me Wait To Long" is the most Beatle-esque tune on here.
