I've been searching out rare records that I've never been able to find in the shops, and I recently came across Yoko's Approximately Infinite Universe. Wow, what a great album!
The songs have a glammy alternative rock sound to it, like early Roxy Music. The songs are actually quite good, some are (dare I say) GREAT! On 'Waiting For Sunrise' she sounds like Siouxsie Sioux's 1980 hit 'Christine' - like new wave music 5-10 years before its time. The quieter piano-based songs are also quite contemplative and nice. When she screams, it's actually set in with the music as a riff and not overtaking the song like her earlier stuff. I've also been listening to 'Yoko Ono - Plastic Ono Band' and that's an even wilder trip! I tell ya what.. I've never heard John and Ringo rock harder as a rhythm section!
I've never been one to 'hate' Yoko, and Kiss Kiss Kiss was always hands down the best song on Double Fantasy outstripping John's predictable-but-good songs by quite a margin.. but I now have a newfound appreciation of Yoko. She rocks!
