Bought 2 both skipped. They appear to be warped. I know the cd is normally a 5 star, but this comes in ultra-high format that can't be played on regular cd player or computer. While Double Fantasy may be better known for what happened 3 weeks after it's release, I think it's a great cd that would've stood the test of time regardless. I am tired of reading constant Yoko-bashing in the reviews of this cd. I am a fan of both John and Yoko, but Yoko is definately one of my top 10 favorite female artists of all time.
If you appreciate the works of somebody like David Bowie or Prince both I think are awesome by the way , I think you will have an easier time "getting" Yoko. She is her own style of music and someone expecting her to sound like The Beatles are setting themselves up for a fall. This is the most mainstream she ever got. Yoko's output was her best ever IMO. Tho I also enjoy her recent forays into dance music. Walking On Thin Ice which is a bonus track on this is an brilliant underrated gem that FINALLY got the recognition it deserved last year when it went to 1 on the dance singles chart, and it earned that.
It's a great record that from John's very last recording session on that fateful day in Dec John had three smash hits off this album. Starting Over is a timeless record that still sounds fresh 24 years later. Woman is a gorgeous love song. And the other songs are great too.
I don't think enough words can be said about what a shame this album along with Milk And Honey closed the chapter on one of rock's greatest artists. Double Fantasy showed the world that John and Yoko who successfully proved that DF was no fluke with the Season Of Glass and It's Alright albums that followed were both ready to take the 's by storm.

When "Double Fantasy" was released in October of , there was much anticipation, but the reviews were mixed.
After all, it had been 5 years since John's last album, and every second track was a Yoko song and she's never been exactly "mainstream"! In the aftermath of John's death, just about every one of his songs from Double Fantasy was turned into a single, and throughout the winter of the radio airplay of these singles was tremendous. Reviewers took another look Today, with 30 years of hindsight, rarely, if ever, does anyone including some of these same critics consider this music not to be brilliant and a landmark of John's solo career.
But, let's be honest With 30 years of hindsight, it's obvious that the mix is way too cluttered, the sound overly slick, and the production reeks of the grating style typical of the early 80's.
Therefore, Yoko's epiphany to release this "stripped down" version of Double Fantasy is absolutely brilliant, and I for one am eternally grateful. We're left with John's brilliant and moving vocals with new humourous diologue! The splendor and sheer genius of these brilliant songs can now truly be appreciated, and we can all finally sit down and listen to what is one of the most moving, personal, and brilliant albums ever, created by one of the most important musical artists of our time.
Thank you Yoko. Tres bon album john lennon une classe a part. I am not a big fan of changing the original but i have to admit that this alternate Double Fantasy is amazing to hear.
Well worth purchase for any Beatles or John Lennon fan. Despite this album has a strong personal meaning to me, I highly recommend this double CD to all Lennon fans. The stripped mix is quite interesting, it's more rock, more experimental too - I like the "inside the studio feeling" - and the audio quality is amazing!
Lennon's voice is loud and clear in all songs The package is also very nice, with a booklet we don't see nowadays, explaining how the album was produced and containing the lyrics, of course. Lennon is always great. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. The original album is the way it always was. You either like it or hate it.
I think it was pretty good. The stripped down version is weird. Stripped down means taking down all the overdubs and production to reveal the basic takes. That would have been cool, but here we have some alternate takes of songs and fly in vocals to add dramatic effect count-ins on I'm Losing You.
A lot of the Double Fantasy sessions have been released ove the years and none of the basic tracks sounded like this. What is this then?
Alternate takes. Production hasn't just been removed here. Entirely different take have been used in some instances and the booklet that comes with the book should actually be more informative.
