In other news regarding John Lennon, fans took to social media recently to reflect on Lennon’s landmark solo album, Walls and Bridges. John Lennon ‘breaking up’ with Yoko Ono was also finally revealed.
One fan wrote: “Even though I idolized John Lennon, I was not crazy about “Walls And Bridges” when it was released in 1974. At that time, I had just discovered Bowie’s “Diamond Dogs”, and Lennon’s chronicle of his “Lost Weekend” sort of paled in comparison to Bowie’s vision of 1984 dystopian society. Another reason is that I simply did not care for “Whatever Gets You Through The Night”, probably my least favorite Lennon hit single. It was full of horns, and I found the whole track a bit noisy and trite. Horns in pop-rock music need to be applied with taste and restraint. But today, listening with fresh ears and a less rigid attitude, I appreciate this album much more than before. I find that the horns are possibly overdone on only 3 tracks other than “Whatever Gets You Through The Night”: those are “Going Down On Love”, “What You Got”, and “Scared”. They are not awful, but they are very much there.
The reviewer continued: “There are three tracks that I describe as slow, deliberate and deadly serious; they are “Scared”, “Steel And Glass” and “Nobody Loves You When You’re Down And Out”. “Steel And Glass” has a particularly strong vocal, and “Nobody Loves You” has an appropriately moving, even weary, vocal. On “Nobody Loves You”, I find that the horns actually enhance the track a bit, except maybe during the guitar solo. “Nobody Loves You” and 2 celestially gorgeous tracks – “Bless You” and “#9 Dream” – are my favorites, just the kind of music I like to hear from John Lennon. There are 3 well-done funked-up tracks. “Going Down On Love” is mid-tempo and laid back, garnished with bongos. “What You Got” has a screamer vocal, and “Surprise Surprise” has funky piano and, ironically, low-key horns. Ironic because you might expect louder horns on a funky track.”
John Lennon last concert ‘meltdown’ revealed. The reviewer concluded: “The sound of the album in general probably could be better, but it’s OK. Some, but not all, of the vocals are a bit fuzzy. All in all, the instrumentation sounds good. Personally, I am very happy to appraise more objectively something I let slide 44 years ago, and, in effect, to rediscover it and realize its beauty.”
