For once, I can't defend a John Lennon album on musical grounds. Still, brilliant moments flicker here and there; and you can't deny the honesty and intensity. Brave but very flawed.

As a Lennon fan, I would love to rate this album with "Plastic Ono Band" and "Imagine" - even "Walls and Bridges" - but it does not hold up, musically.

"Some Time..." lacks hooks, strong songwriting, (astonishing for a work by John Lennon,) and is only really interesting for its single, Ono's "We're All Water," and as an artifact of its times.

A "diehard" Lennon fan, even I cannot recommend this album.

Hard to rate this album. I would normally have given it 50/100, but at least I can skip (which I will for the next times) the other half of the album. I'm actually not against Yoko Ono and her voice. It's actually beautifully melancholic, if not a bit off-key, on "Sisters, O Sisters". But her frustrating wailing that doesn't seem to stop ever on parts of this album? No, thanks!

The studio album is completely underrated. It's an album about then recent news and injustice, done mainly in the style of 50s rock and roll songs, with lots of great brass. Women is the Nigger of the World, John Sinclair, Attica State, New York City and Sunday Bloody Sunday are all really good songs. Even Yoko gives a couple good songs with We're All Water and Born in a Prison. It's a lively, meaningful rock album that I would give a solid 4 out of 5. ...............The live album on the other hand sucks big time. Cold Turkey is okay, if not a bit repetitive, and then over the next 40 minutes we get to hear Yoko shouting over loud guitar. It's awful. Don't Worry Kyoko obviously has meaning to it, but it's ear bleedingly awful and 16 minutes long. Even Zappa can't save this live album, which gets about a 1 out of 5 from me.
