Overview

"The making of the album served as a purging of my angst, pain and fear," writes Yoko Ono in a sleeve note to her first new album in a decade. "I hope it will for you, too." The angst, pain, and fear she cites come both from her childhood in war-torn Japan and such current-day scourges as AIDS. Ono returns to primal screaming on some tracks to express those feelings, and the album's music, played by IMA, a trio featuring her son, Sean Ono Lennon, matches her fury with hard rock and funk worthy of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. In the '80s, Ono turned to pop
ock without achieving a commercial breakthrough. Here, she returns to the abrasive style of her '70s work, which has turned out to be more influential on a generation of alternative rockers.
