Yeah do, let us know how you go, but I think the depths are just not there.

Alas, my feelings for the album have not changed. The one other song that does resonate with me is 'I Know (I Know)', even if it does owe its riff to I've Got A Feeling. Overall, the album feels heavily derivative and very much second division Lennon material. I enjoy Some Time In NYC and Walls & Bridges a great deal more - even though they were not regarded amongst his finest work either.

And I'm not a fan of that slap-back echo sound he put on his drums and vocals at that time. It comes across as a cheap low-rent approximation of the Sun Studios sound. He may as well have used a tacky VST with Audacity!  ;D
