REVIEWS
Average points: 4.67 (Reviews: 6)
*****
Nach dem brutalen NYC Album lenkte Lennon aufeinmal in eine ganz andere Richtung und nahm ein ruhiges, sanftes Album auf.

der Titletrack zählt zu seinen schönsten Nummern überhaupt, der Rest halt nur solide, durchschnittlich..
UK #13
US #9
*****
Gehört zu den besten Alben.
****
Gutes Album, kann für meine Ohren sogar mit "Imagine" mithalten. Mit dem Titelsong, "One Day (At a Time)", "You Are Here", "Aisumasen (I'm Sorry)" und "Bring On The Lucie (Freda Peeple)" gibt es etliche schöne Songs. Interessantes Cover-Artwork auch. Nur "Meat City" hätte er sich schenken können.
*****
Auf seinem Imagine-Album gab es den Song 'How Do You Sleep', in dem er gegen seinen früheren Band-Kollegen Paul Cartney stichelte, dass dessen Musik nicht ernst zu nehmen sei, sondern dass sie höchstens als Hintergrundmusik tauge ('... the sound you make is muzak to my ears ...').
Nun, was John Lennon auf seinem Album 'Mind Games' bietet, ist in gewisser Weise genau die Art von Musik, die er bei Paul kritisierte. Zum größten Teil handelt es sich dabei um harmlose, locker-flockige Songs die aber durchaus ihren Reiz haben. Trotz der eher einfachen Songstrukturen braucht das Album mehrere Durchläufe bis es seine Schönheit entfaltet.
Beste Songs sind für mich neben dem bekannten, atmosphärischen Titelsong, der Slowblues 'Aisumasen (I'm Sorry)' und der überdrehte Glamrocker 'Meat City'.
Meine Bewertung: aufgerundete 4,5*.

*****
Sicher nicht auf dem Level seiner Top-Alben, aber jetzt
auch nicht so schlecht, wie es viele Musikkritiker und Fans
sehen wollten.....die hauchdünne 5 liegt aber nur dank
des wirklich brutal schönen Titelsongs drin!
