What really struck me is how the musicians hear Yoko's voice as revealed by how they handled its quality. Sometimes, it is light, almost whispery, other times femininely sonorous. The "Yes, I'm a Witch" track is incredible and inspiring. If you feel down and disenfranchised, this CD will really pick you up!
If you're feeling good, it will make you feel that much stronger. Yoko is so cool! Loved her all these years and this remix is really fun. Hope to hear more from her soon. A true talent. She was so far ahead of her time in art and music. John always wanted her to be accepted by his fans. This is a sample of her talents. See all 28 customer reviews. Write a customer review.

Current young artists add their electronic hip hop danceable takes to some of her best songs. The first six cuts flow smoothly. Everyman has a woman that loves him Mutantes aah-hah-huh! Favorite cut:Death of Samantha,"people say I'm cruel I'm a cruel chick, baby Yeah, I'm cruel,I'm a They say this lake was as deep as the ocean Where can I get a pair of those killer shades?
The rest range from ok to not for me. Like Open Your Box it's a mixed bag. It took several listenings to appreciate anything, but the ones that caught fire real work for me.
That doesn't allow an individual piece to distinguish itself. But all in all I'm happy to own anything Ono puts out. The original Walking On Thin Ice is a tough act to follow, but the version on I'm A Witch is the one remake of this powerful song to equal its origins.
Yoko seems to be on the cutting edge hit parade of being hip with the current music revolutionaries. I'm really unfamiliar with that scene. Her need to be hip and sexy at seventy-something seems terribly important to her. While I'm really happy to play the tunes I like from both current releases Open Your Box, the single, especially the extended single cd release of several versions of Open Your Box, is magnificent, there are times when she rivals that 70's disco powerhouse Donna Summers, which is no small accomplishment I'm more in tune with the serious avant-garde Ono.
Though the hipper and younger crowd will really enjoy these two releases. I find them better to listen to while driving in my car with that open road exhileration of movement. Still, so many do really pleasant things: Shitake Monkey translating the groovy Central Park stroll of "O'Oh" into its perfect down-tempo house equivalent, Spiritualized's Jason Pierce throwing out the frigid disco of "Walking on Thin Ice" and turning it into a guitar-strangling feedback epic, or Porcupine Tree and Cat Power both keeping it spare and modest, hanging back and letting ballads speak for themselves.
No one goofs up, really; not even Peaches. The biggest surprise is that Le Tigre could take a cheerleadery sock-hop song called "Sisters O Sisters" and somehow suck the life out of it-- which is what tends to happen here, interestingly enough, when people are trying too hard to be abstract and unconventional.
And that's the odd thing about this collection: If it provides people with a bridge into appreciating Ono's work, it won't be by making it more accessible. Q: There are 17 tracks on this album what makes it kind of an opus magnum. And: When did you start thinking about it? Yoko: I was thinking of wanting to do something like this when I put out the first album called Two Virgins. The title was Unfinished music No. Two Virgins. I believed then, that musicians would pick up that idea then.
But at the time the whole world was more interested in the cover of the album. Did you meet her while you were doing your last exhibition in Berlin? Speaking of Berlin: Do you have a special relationship to this city? Yoko: I love Berlin. The scent of the Linden blossoms in the early summer when I walk the streets of Berlin!
Q: The feminist attitude of Peaches is often described as provocative. Yoko: I think there is such a backlash to feminism, it is still very hard for many women.
By being afraid of women and not treating them with fairness, the society is not getting the benefit of woman power. It is the loss of the society, more than anything else. Was he right? Yoko: Well, you can say that. They were saying I was a witch. But if I was not a rebel, I would have been squashed long time ago. Q: There were always, and still are, people who try to distinguish themselves at your expense.
