"c'mon, duane. why do you have the time to write 1-star reviews for albums you probably haven't even heard? jump on the bandwagon; "yoko sucks." actually, i quite like her. sure, she can be difficult, but she also can be an acquired taste. if you don't like her, you're not going to like her. reviews are superfluous. don't bother reading them - including this one.
however, if you are willing to experiment and are truly a fan of alt-rock (not the green day swill that duane seems to prefer, thus setting his age at around 9), try it out. buy it used. sell it to someone else if you don't like it.
but you WILL have a reaction, which is the point of music, isn't it? you might hate it. so be it. you might love it. good for you! you might say, "huh?" ok, so you took a chance.
here's a dare; buy john coltrane's "blue trane" and "interstellar space." most fans of jazz would like the first and hate the last. but if you have an open mind, you might hear something of value in both.
so to quote someone familiar:
"if it don't feel right, you don't have to do it. just leave a message on the phone and tell [duane] to screw it."
peace out, ono sideball."

"Don't fall for the hype. Yoko Ono's music is different, but not bizarre. Sure, she yelps and screams and moans on a few songs, but if anything that makes the case that her music was ahead of its time. I especially like the Bluesy-Rock of "Death of Samantha" and the Reggae-Pop of "Don't Be Scared". Her songs are unique; her voice is distinctive. This is not for Mariah fans.
