Wedding album? A marriage made in hell, perhaps!

"John and Yoko scream at each other for almost half an hour. Yep.
George Martin made the understatement of the millennium when he said, "I'm not so sure that Yoko was a good musical influence on John."
John went from writing songs like "All You Need Is Love," and, "In My Life," to screeching with Yoko into a tape recorder. Avant Garde? How about self-indulgent, no talent, lazy BS?"

"REVIEW: With all honesty: John and Yoko's "WEDDING ALBUM" (the third and last of their avant-garde/experimental collaborations) is the absolute pits. Whereas the audio verite of "TWO VIRGINS" had at least a similtude of inspiration (a la The Beatles "Revolution 9"), and the all-out white noise of "LIFE WITH THE LIONS" made for an all-too-real snapshot of personal pain: the lame "John & Yoko" (where our newlyweds holler out each other's names for twenty-three freakin' minutes) is pure egocentric horse [...]. I could edit a half-hour tape of me farting, and it would sound more interesting than this bunch of nonsense. The second side is a bit better: an audio documentary of the Lennon's bed-in in "Amsterdam" prologued by Yoko's "John, Let's Hope For Peace" and ending with a halfway decent acoustic guitar/vocal improvisation that goes "stay in bed...grow your hair" followed by Lennon cooing "Goodnight" from The Beatles' "WHITE ALBUM". It may not be worth a couple of listens, but at least it is worth SOMETHING (although naive in their politics: they do make some interesting points such as "there isn't one European country that hasn't had its Hitler...we're violent people...but I prefer myself when I'm non-violent. I prefer my friends when they're non-violent. It just makes for easier living"). The original LP was accompanied by a gargantuan box set filled to the brim with booklets, a fascimile of J. and Y.'s marriage certificate, photos, and a picture of a piece of wedding cake. Obviously Beatle John desired to celebrate his marriage to Yoko, but I wonder if the elaborate packaging was used to compensate for the lack of originality (and utter triviality) of the "WEDDING ALBUM" itself. Completists will treasure it more so than the casual Beatle listener even though the three bonus tracks do help to make it a much better bargain. Yoko haters should quickly turn the other way and run: this isn't going to win you over as a fan. I am a Yoko fan, and I can honestly say that I love "Who Has Seen The Wind?" and "Listen, The Snow Is Falling". But the other selections aren't worth defending. HARSH LANGUAGE: none. VIOLENCE: none. SEXUAL REFERENCES: only wee suggestions of it during "John & Yoko". DRUG REFERENCES: about 2.
