Eins, swei, hickle, fickle...

Milk And Honey, in many ways, is superior to its predecessor, Double Fantasy. While the former is an excellent album, its production (and sometimes overproduction) lacks the intimacy of the latter.
In a way, John not getting to finish these tracks works to the album's advantage, as you get to hear him ad-libbing and giving directions to the band and engineers in the studio.
Let me start by saying I'm not someone who could be considered a fan of Yoko's music. As such, I was pleasantly surprised by her contributions here, especially "Sleepless Night," "Let Me Count The Ways" and "You're The One," which are actually listenable.
Now let's talk about the reason most of us bought Milk And Honey: John Lennon's music. The 1984 album -- which was out-of-print for over ten years -- opens with "I'm Stepping Out," chronicling John's trials and tribulations of being a househusband. "I Don't Wanna Face It" is a delightful rocker, while the album's best-known song, "Nobody Told Me," is a track in which John's knack for wordplay is on full display. John describes entering his forties in "Borrowed Time," the most criminally overlooked single of his career. "(Forgive Me) My Little Flower Princess" is a throwaway track and is the weakest Lennon song on the disc, while "Grow Old With Me," recorded on a tape recorder atop John's piano, is one of the best songs he ever wrote. It would be interesting to hear what he intended to do with the song in the studio.
Kudos to Yoko on the 2001 reissue; (.... The four extra tracks are a very welcome addition, especially the December 8th interview, which was recorded approximately five hours before John was taken from us. You also get demos of John's "I'm Stepping Out" and Yoko's "I'm Moving On," as well as a remixed version of Yoko's "Every Man Has A Woman Who Loves Him." This version, which previously was only available on CD on the long out-of-print "Lennon" box set, bumps John's backing vocals up to lead and downgrades Yoko's lead vocals to backing.
The sound on the remaster is excellent, following the precedent set by last year's reissue of Double Fantasy.
If you haven't heard Milk And Honey before, you have an ample opportunity to go and pick it up. I suggest you take advantage.

The Best Les Mis Recording ever!!!

I was introduced to les Miserables by a friend who lent me the Symphonic recording a few years ago and i was left in absolute awe with that one. However, when I hired the video of the 10th anniversary concert to get some pointers on how best to perform On My Own for a vocal competition I had entered it had an effect on me that was a zillion times stronger than when I heard the Symphonic recording. First I renewed the video loan so I kept it for an extra week, I just didn't want to part with it lol but then I returned it and bought my own copy plus a copy of this cd. I've had them both for a year and haven't got sick of them yet! They still leave me awestruck. Colm Wilkinson is amazing as always in the lead role of Valjean and Phillip Quast - well what can I say he IS Javert. Ruthie Henshall as Fantine is a delight because as well as having a gorgeous voice she puts so much emotion into her part and it is always such a pleasure to hear this performance of hers. There's one downside, and that's Michael Maguire as Enjolras because he is a huge disappointment. I have heard him on other soundtracks and he has been great, but on this particular one I don't know whether he was sick or something, but he cracks nearly every high note. Michael Ball - the original Marius - has a voice like silk and he never ceases to amaze me just how wonderful he is in the role of Marius, and this performance is no exception. Judy Kuhn is lovely as Cosette and she brings some much needed life into a character that i have never really liked much because I find the whole perfection of Cosette irritating. With Kuhn in the role however, I can appreciate the part because of her talent. The Thenardiers are so funny, both of them and all their numbers are so entertaining! I also enjoyed the performance of Graintaire here. I'm sorry I don't actually know the name of the guy who played him, but I just have to mention that his solo in "Drink With Me" touches my heart everytime I hear it. As for the show stopper, well it was definitely Lea Salonga in the role of the heartbroken Eponine. Salonga is the most amazing Eponine I have heard and her duet with Michael ball, "A little fall of rain" is THE song of the show. It makes me cry every single time I hear it. Salonga and Ball are the perfect example of how two performers can compliment each other and make each others performances 10 times better. If you don't have a Les Miserables album, this is the one to get, although I hope you do get more :) I'd also strongly reccommend getting the video of this performance because it adds so much more that the cd doesn't capture.

I purchased the cd and have enjoyed it very much.

I purchased the cd without having seen the movie and believe the songs are quite memorable. It is a delightful soundtrack. I recommend it for children and those who are young at heart.
