Yoko Ono has an avant-garde pedigree second to none, while Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore pushed rock 'n' roll's boundaries until musique concrète, experimental tunings, and extended atonal jams became commonplace. That said, this is a difficult listen for those hoping for a smooth ride or something nearing accessibility. The three have previously made music together, but this is a focused attempt to work on several extended pieces. Their collaboration brings out their most experimental sides, and that means plenty of modulating wails from Ono and vague, atmospheric guitar sounds from Gordon and Moore that build to screaming heights when called for. This may sound surprising or even unlistenable to those who don't know each artist's extremes. But to those acclimated, there's an intriguing vagueness to "Mirror Mirror," an Ono Band vibe to "I Missed You Listening," and wonderful spoken word elements in "Running the Risk" and "I Never Told You (Did I?)." Gordon and Moore's 27-year marriage has recently ended, but their artistic partnership remains. And Yoko is always Yoko.
This is not pop music or standard commercial-art, so stop being chocked/annoyed at the fact that it is not what you expected or what you wanted it to be.
This is experimental music like Pink Floyd's Ummagumma or Lou Reed's Lulu ... Stuff you listen to with headphones and by yourself, not while driving, doing laundry or picking-up chicks.
It has its place, far-opposite to Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne or Taylor Swift.
I wanted to kill myself!
I have this a listen in hopes that time would have made a change to Yoko and her decisions. How wrong I was. If you like the sounds of cats being killed and mad shrieks with little to no meaning then this might be for you. I doubt it...but there is always the possibility that someone out there in this crazy world will love this terrible mess...just not me. The definition of madness is doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome...well Yoko has dome the same thing and the Madness needs to stop...who ever produced this needs to think of a career change and soon...maybe in sanitation based upon the crap this album is soliciting.
What is this?
Seriously….what is it? It sounds like someone is having a stroke, while they are tripping on mushrooms.
