The Beebles In The 70s: Part 12
Mind Games

Some Time In New York City was a disaster, so much so that John stopped making political songs a big focus for his projects and his relationship with Yoko worsened so much that they ended up splitting up for a while.

John also decided to not work with Phil Spector on this album and instead produce it himself. So with all of that said…is this album better than the last?

Yeah but it’s safe y’know, it’s a safe retreat into the ... read more

Who would have thought that separating with Yoko Ono would be a good idea?

I know that the score I've given this isn't exactly favourable, but I genuinely do like this album. More than that, this is MILES better than anything he did with Yoko.

A nice soft rock album and a great comeback after the underwhelming "Some Time in New York City". Dealing with his monthly separation from Yoko Ono, Lennon returns to the personal/confessional themes and melody-driven music, and that's where he really shines in my opinion.
The title track, as well as "One Day (At a Time)" and "Bring on the Lucie" are the strongest pieces of the album. As a whole, it's a bit monotonous, both in music and lyrics, but not boring or ... read more

Когда речь заходит о творчестве Джона Леннона, кто-то считает своим священным долгом говорить о нём, преисполнившись гуманистического пафоса. Миру мир. Любите — не воюйте. Будьте людьми и будьте счастливы. Ряд духоподъёмных фраз, зачитывающихся как мантра, но в ... read more
