From Kurtco
"John Lennon / Plastic Ono Band" is John Lennon's first solo album (not to mention the avant-garde shit album before ...). The album was released in 1970, the year of the Beatles' death. First of all I want to say that I am not at all a fan of Yoko Ono and his voice is really strange. Fortunately, she is not too present on this album. Sincerely, I think this record is the best solo album of an ex-Beatles. This introspective album is really very successful and is for me a masterpiece.

9/10

Best track: "God"

Tough listen, but only because it's so raw and emotional. Brilliant work by one of the all time greats.

Both John Lennon's best solo album, and surprisingly, Ringo's best album too. His drumming is phenomenal on every track he plays on. I can only bring myself to listen to this when in a sour mood, but damn do I love it every time.

Some really great songs but not the consistency for me to consider it a great album.
Few artists can convey passion through vocals as well as John Lennon and this results in his personal songs being the most powerful on the record.

Stunning album from a world class songwriter. It’s raw emotion can take the breath away on first listen. “My Mummy’s Dead” isn’t exactly Yellow Submarine! The sparse production adds to the cathartic aura of the album. He was going through primal thearapy at the time and this leaks into the lyrics. A brilliant album that he struggled to match.

Great album. I feel like this is by far Lennon's most personal work as if he is using this album to come to terms with everything and the result is a beautiful and emotional album.

I think John Lennon's lyrics are the truest ones I heard. Since "Help!" His words became more and more introspective, personal and obscure. Resulting in lines like "Mother you had me, but I never had you", and "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me" in this album.
