John Lennon Plastic Ono Band is the greatest solo album by any former Beatle with few equals since it's creatively, musically, artistically & lyrically John at his finest which he never surpassed again as a solo artist with Imagine being the second greatest solo album by a former Beatle!

I daresay, how often does one whip out POB at a party?

I voted for ATMP, tho that too would be a downer hanging with buds.

BOTR would work better for that I would guess, tho that was not the original question.

I voted for POB. It may be a downer but I believe it's John at his best. Imagine is second.

 My vote goes to POB. I think its my favorite album ever, really.

 I understand about the "party music" appeal, but that doesn't really constitute a great album, does it? I hope not. I think its just the quality of the material on the album, and the extent to which that quality affects you. All these kinds of things are purely subjective, yet fun- at times. But I kind of enjoy music that really shakes me up and makes me think and sort of "disturbs" me the most. In fact, the White Album is my fave Beatles album because I got this reaction from it the first time I heard it. :)

 But, you know, different strokes for different folks. :)

You may say I'm a dreamer,
but I'm not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

That album wins

 I voted for All Things Must Pass for the sheer amount of quality tracks. If John would have finished the songs from Milk and Honey and combined them with Doulble Fantasy and ditched Yokos tracks then that would have been the ultimate solo album.

Plastic Ono Band. As one reviewer put it:  "He put his balls on the tracks and the train, out of sheer respect, ground to a halt."
