Background: Imagine, released in 1971, was John Lennon’s second proper solo album, and it was a huge success, reaching #1 on the album charts in at least nine countries, including the UK and the U.S.
After the harrowing Plastic Ono Band, John Lennon returned to calmer, more conventional territory with Imagine. While the album had a softer surface, it was only marginally less confessional than its predecessor. … If Imagine doesn’t have the thematic sweep of Plastic Ono Band, it is nevertheless a remarkable collection of songs that Lennon would never be able to better again.
