yep, Plastic Ono Band is really realistic, although My Mammy's dead sounds such more psychedelic than Mr. Kite does. It's very interesting -- album starts with Mother -- a bit depressive, full of attack -- to himself, to his parents, to parents at all, to all the world, i think. But the last one is MMD -- so true that it can't be more...
We're breathing a lot, a lot of political nonsense in the air.
I think that "My Mummy's Dead" is a very effective song - it sounds musically like the sort of thing you'd sing in school, but of course with those lyrics . . .
POB is a very heart-on-sleeve album - John is putting his emotions on display a lot here. It's also a great album full-stop. Not psychedelic as such, but very honest, very raw.
The difference between genius and insanity is merely the difference between success and failure.
