EDITORS’ NOTES

George Harrison’s gentle vocals, melancholic lyrics, and lilting slide guitars set a fully realized tone on his seventh solo album. It’s filled mostly with sweet pop that avoids the saccharine, with touching, world-weary introspections (“Beautiful Girl,” “Crackerbox Palace”) and beautifully redemptive experiences (“True Love” and the guitar-and-organ stunner “Dear One,” a tribute to meditation guru Paramahansa Yogananda). Elsewhere there’s crunching country-funk (“Woman Don’t You Cry”), swinging R&B-pop and satire (“This Song”), mid-’70s mellowness (“Pure Smokey”), and a true heart-melter (“Learning How to Love You”).
