Background: Released in 1970, Plastic Ono Band was the fourth solo album by John Lennon, though many regard it as his first.
The album reached #6 on the U.S. charts and #8 on the UK charts.
The cliché about singer/songwriters is that they sing confessionals direct from their heart, but John Lennon exploded the myth behind that cliché, as well as many others, on his first official solo record, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band. Inspired by his primal scream therapy with Dr. Arthur Janov, Lennon created a harrowing set of unflinchingly personal songs, laying out all of his fears and angers for everyone to hear. It was a revolutionary record — never before had a record been so explicitly introspective, and very few records made absolutely no concession to the audience’s expectations, daring the listeners to meet all the artist’s demands. … Few albums are ever as harrowing, difficult, and rewarding as John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band.
