Microscope: Wedding Album
« on: November 09, 2012, 10:12:16 AM »

Wedding Album



John & Yoko
This track consists of the couple's heartbeat and John and Yoko repeating each other's names over and over again for over 22 minutes. They change the timber of their voices, producing shouts, pleas, whispers and other ways to call someone's name. Very interesting to listen to. Not. Plus it's a bit long.

Amsterdam
John's solo output is beginning to become completely embarressing at this point. This track covers the complete b-side of the album and is a documentary type of thing about the bed-in in Amsterdam. The first five minutes are once again painful to the ears when Yoko is singing 'let's hope for peace'.

Then there's a seven minute interview with John and Yoko about protesting for peace and living in peace. After two and half album of pure sh*t it's refreshing to hear them speak normally.

The next segment has the sound of seagulls, some noise, John announcing to stay in bed and dialogues recorded during the bed-in. It's followed by an interview and some Indian music. Then Yoko comes in once again, singing Stay In Bed. John sings a line of the Beatles song (!) Goodnight, strums his guitar somewhat and says 'Oh yeah'. Not very uplifting.

All in all, the interview parts on the track 'Amsterdam' are at least listenable and interesting in a historical context. The album lacks a hit single.

Did anybody ever actually buy this sh*t? I cant think of a torture any worse then hearing them call each others name over a heartbeat for 22 minutes.

I'll review every John and George studio album. I'll review the Ringo and Goodnight Vienna albums for Ringo.

Hhahaha I've not heard it but I wouldn't recommend listening to it unless out of a historical curiosity.

I'd opt for Grow Old With Me with the George Martin orchestration.

Maybe it could be useful at the end of the party to make people leave the place. ;)

Depends on what kind of impression you're hoping to make on your new in-laws!

I've been pretty busy lately, but I will get back to the microscopes pretty soon.

Live Peace in Toronto first. It's a proper album. I'll get to Plastic Ono Band after that right away.

Lennon + Clapton, great mix of talents. Could something/someone spoil the experience?

"Plastic Ono Band"? "Live In Toronto"? We stopped in the middle of McCartneys catalog for this sh*t?

I don't own Live Peace In Toronto. I may pick it up for a few sheccles on Amazon.

I've never listened to the whole song of Amsterdam, but I actually like what I've heard of it roll:) ha2ha I love what tkitna said about the song John & Yoko ha2ha I totally agree! Another song I like from the album is Who Has Seen The Wind? I admit that I like Yoko's voice in some songs, not all though. My favorite song she sings is Kiss Kiss Kiss from Double Fantasy.
