Season of Glass

Season of Glass

by Yoko Ono



After John Lennon's murder, Yoko took her anguish into the recording studio and emerged with this raw collection of songs. From the gunshots before the cut "No, No, No" to John's bloody glasses on the cover, this is harrowing stuff indeed. But it's surprisingly good, if only for the fact that the whole world was feeling similarly at the time. One of the most essential Yoko Ono releases, it's powerful and chilling. The CD reissue adds two bonus cuts: the single "Walking on Thin Ice" and a previously unreleased version of "I Don't Know Why," an a cappella home cassette recording made the day after Lennon's assassination.

This work is simply astonishing. After years of nothing but criticism, Ms. Ono still had the convictions to stick with her art and make it public. Lyrics are astounding; musicians top-notch; and the pain is palpable. Listen to this immediately after ''Double Fantasy'', paying close attention to the lyrics. The ironies will rip your heart out... The trilogy continues with ''It's Alright'' and reaches closure and forgiveness with 1985's ''Star Peace''. Do yourself a favor and get all three.
