Yes I am a Witch – review week 9
3 out of 5
This ironically titled album is Ono's first release since her not-so successful collaboration on the Beatles's 'Love', and needless to say it is much more credible. Here sees a reworking of Ono's hits in a series of collaborations with the indie elite, albeit with varying levels of success. They best tracks are those that take Ono's tracks in a new direction, as pop funk collaboration with Shitake Monkey proves. Cat Powers simple melody and vocals on 'Revelations' are nothing short of spine tingling, yet some tracks simply fail to impress. Anthony of Anthony and the Johnsons simply fails to make the most of his vocal range in 'Toyboat' ,whilst electro infused tracks from Peaches and Le Tigre make a laudable effort yet lack substance. For some this album will prove to be a little too pretentious, yet for some it will no doubt be proven an unlikely pleasure.
