To be honest, I have only heard approximately 15 seconds of "Sun is Down" on the radio. For those of you with kids, doesn't it sound like something from UK kids show "Yo Gabba Gabba?"

HASH(0x9b191fcc) out of 5 stars Yoko Ono is an amazing artists! Sept. 22 2009
By VD2400 - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Yoko Ono's new album is an amazing piece of work/art. It's a beautiful album that blends her past music to her present music. This is an album awaited for many years from her many fans. The album is perfection and couldn't be better. Her vocals are as strong and perfect as ever! May Yoko Ono bring us more art and music very very soon because her many fans have waited too long. May there be a US tour as well! Small towns have many Yoko Ono fans as well as the cities! May the queen of art keep bringing us music and art to learn from! I love you Yoko!

HASH(0x9b00f234) out of 5 stars I Love Yoko. Sept. 22 2009
By Ean R. Mcnamara - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Her new album kicks off in style with a funky rockin' freak out, "Waiting For The D Train." When I first saw that title as the album opener, I thought that perhaps the 76 year old artist had images of death on her mind. Was this album a quiet farewell?

Nothing like. Well, something like- but certainly not that opening number. When was the last time you heard an album open like this- let alone an album by a 76 year old?

The album changes gear often, and sometimes dramatically, as Yoko wrestles with ideas of her lovers, legacy, life, and oncoming death. Stand out tracks are the danceable "The Sun is Down," the psychedelic "Calling," the hard hitting "Between My Head And The Sky," and the dreamy "Feel The Sand."

The album readies for the close with a trio of songs led by piano- an instrument that weighs heavily in Yoko's life and home. Here Yoko seems her most open and contemplative. As she invokes images of shuddering coughs, invisible walls, and those she'll leave behind- she also asks, "why is this life so beautiful?"

The last track on the album is a sweet surprise, and reminds us that Yoko is at heart an earnest, funny, soul.

HASH(0x9b00f474) out of 5 stars Still Defiantly Different Sept. 23 2009
By DSF - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I don't love Yoko, but I like her a lot :) BETWEEN MY HEAD AND THE SKY is a mostly very solid piece of work, considerably better than 2001's BLUEPRINT FOR A SUNRISE. Some of the tracks may sound half-finished, with vocals and lyrics that are an awkward fit to the music, but when BETWEEN succeeds, as it does most of the time, it's quite a heady listening experience. The title track is classic Yoko: funky, fierce, and darkly funny. And I imagine even longtime Yoko detractors could come away from touching ballads "I'm Going Away Smiling," "Unun. To," and "Higa Noboru" feeling their hardened hearts at least a little softened.

By the way, be sure to check out Ono's collaboration with Basement Jaxx, "Day Of The Sunflowers (We March On)." It's on the Basement Jaxx album SCARS, and it's crazy kooky brilliant.

HASH(0x9b00f4ec) out of 5 stars A Classic record from the inventer of Punk,and new age music Oct. 3 2009
By Bob Waskiewicz - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I heard some of these songs played on line,and Yoko and Sean performing on The View.It was such a moving moment seeing this Mother and Son teaming up together.Sean Lennon has turned into a great Young Man his Father would be proud of,and a great musician.
This CD isn't for everyone,just fans of this type of music that Yoko Invented HERSELF years ago that help spark the punk rock movement.
In 1981 I bought Yoko's album,"Season of Glass," and was blow away by some of her songs,produced by Phil Spector,Especially the first cut,"Goodbye Sadness,about her late GREAT husband."This record has that same feeling.If you are a fan,your going to love this CD,It's getting alot of notice and awards.
