Plastic Ono Band is generally considered one of Lennon’s finest solo albums and a landmark recording. John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band is generally considered one of Lennon’s finest solo albums and a landmark recording. Rolling Stone named it the twenty-second greatest album of all time.

History
The “Plastic Ono Band” in the album’s title refers to the conceptual band Lennon and Ono had formed in of various supporting musicians they would use on their various solo albums.

After The Beatles’ break-up in April 1970, both Lennon and Ono undertook Primal therapy with the guidance of Arthur Janov for four months in Los Angeles. Forced to confront the traumas of his childhood (abandonment, isolation and death), Lennon finally let his submerged anger and hurt rise to the surface and dealt with it through his art. Similarly, Ono’s concurrently-recorded album, Yoko Ono / Plastic Ono Band was a form of catharsis for her.

    EASILY Lennon's masterpiece, featuring some of his best work ever- solo or otherwise. An honest, raw and amazing CLASSIC that's forever one of my all-time favorites.

    É uma mistura de alegria-depressão fascinante. Ótima fonte de inspiração. As letras em sua maioria porém soam repetitivas demais. Como um vocabulário pobre. As melhores são Working Class Hero, Well Well Well e God. ~~~~<3

    Yeah, best thing he released as a solo artist, and equals most of the Beatles output (though comparison is rather silly considering how different they sound).

    the only other time i've ever heard such raw, "wall-less" expression is on Joni Mitchell's "Blue"

    One of the most simple album ever, yet one of the best album ever. It never gets old.
