Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
This one is nearly impossible to approach. Yoko Ono is insanely ambitious. Or just insane. Probably a bit of both, actually. The 80-year-old's newest album Take Me to the Land of Hell is as diverse and grandiose as it is bizarre, oozing with almost off-putting levels of creative energy. While much of the record showcases Ono's uncanny vocals ranging from spoken word to an echoing caterwaul, most of its appeal lies in the spectrum of music surrounding it provided by an absurdly expansive set of players including (but not limited to): Sean Lennon, Nels Cline of Wilco, tUnE-yArDs, Lenny Kravitz, Ad-Rock and Mike D. of the Beastie Boys, Yuko Araki, and ?uestlove. The musical pieces of Take Me may be scattered across a soundscape with varying elements and styles, but the strangeness of it all blurs the lines between tracks.
