I think this is a hard album to like for a lot of people, it has no frills is very bare, there is no singles on it, I think John said its like Imagine without the sugarcoating ...
Anyway yes, I like it a lot, John was obviously doing primal therapy when he wrote it so its of its time so to speak.
I think Janov encouraged him to get these feelings out, I cant imagine how difficult it must be to have parents that didnt want you, I think it actually would have a massive effect on you forever, I think John needed to exorcise these demons and Yoko and Janov helped him do it..
I see it more as an artistic statement from a tortured soul, absolutely brilliant IMO..
I particularly like the words to Working Class Hero
