Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone - "Opening with a screeching, live 26-minute suite that's mostly Ono's spiraling onomatopoeia and Lennon's colorful flower bursts of guitar feedback, it's Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix as Jackson Pollack and Mark Rothko....Entire swaths of violent yet lighthearted avant-rock starts right here."

Spin (9/97, p.157) - "...Lennon's feedback textures sound startlingly contemporary--the way he plays against Ono's mantric form-warbles, sinking into free-jazz gush, could be mistaken for something newly struck by Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore..."

Melody Maker (6/28/97, p.58) - "[This] is, assuming you're relatively strong of stomach, fantastic...for all its improvised imprecision, it actually sounds subtle, structured even....tremendously listenable."

Pitchfork (Website) - "Corporate tussles between the Beatles and their record label provide some of the inspiration for 'No Bed for Beatle John,' a piece recorded in Ono's hospital room, following a miscarriage."
