A very simple album and recorded to be that way. John plays all the guitars on this album and most of the keyboards. "God" receives a ten rating more for the message he sends out to everyone - don't believe in everything that you are told to, don't believe that anything is more important to you than your own life, and don't be a follower in life, follow your own inner light! A very Zen like message, if anything! "Working Class Hero" is another song on here that sends out a similar message using a "in your face" way of delivering the message.
The best song on this one is "Mother," a haunting tune recorded about his parents, who both abandoned him as a child. Most of the other songs are very even and all flow together well. No, it may not be his greatest album, but no bad throwaway songs on this one either. A very good album to listen to if your in a mellow mood.
