“John Lennon would have turned 67 in 2007. If alive, he could well be at the forefront of bringing peace to Darfur, where more than half a million have died from violence and disease during four years of rebel discord. So to create awareness of the ongoing conflict, Amnesty International (with permission from Yoko Ono) has mined Lennon’s solo work and rounded up nearly two dozen current artists to reinterpret the music, which spans the ex-Beatle’s entire post-band catalog (plus a pair from while the Fab Four were still in business). As with any attempt to cover Beatles-related music, results are hit and miss, with kudos going to Snow Patrol and the Postal Service for capturing the starkness of “Isolation” and “Grow Old with Me,” respectively, Mexican rock band Jaguares for uncovering the fear and fury in “Gimme Some Truth,” and (surprise!) Christina Aguilera for nailing the complex composition and mood of “Mother.” Other highlights include Jackson Browne’s piano-led “Oh My Love,” Green Day’s louder straight take on “Working Class Hero,” and the Black Eyed Peas turning “Power to the People” into a gospelly protest. Will resurrecting 30-to-40-year-old messages of peace and love be enough to help end the brutalities in Darfur? That remains to be seen. But selecting John Lennon as the author of those messages will make people listen and, with this collection, may keep them listening.”“If there is a “must have” album out for the summer of 2007, this is it. What could be better then getting some great tunes and serving a worthy cause at the same time. Yoko Ono donated the rights to John Lennon’s entire catalog for this release, and I think it’s something he would have been proud of.

John spoke in a interview once about going back are re-recording much of his material, because he was never quite happy with the productions. The recent remastering of his catalog gave us a taste of what that might have been like. Instant Karma takes it to another level.

These are some of the most beautiful songs ever written, and if there was ever a questions on whether John Lennon’s solo work equaled or surpassed what he did with the Beatles, this album answers it with a resounding YES.

There are a few disappointment and a few pleasant surprises. U2’s “Instant Karma” strays too far from the original by trying to replace the “wall of sound” piano with droning guitar. The Black Eyed Peas do a good enough version of “Power to the People”, but I kept waiting for them to bust out with some of their brilliant ad-lib rap, but that never happens. Maybe they were just trying to respect the original song, but it left me wanting more.

Jacob Dylan and Dhani Harrison compliment each other as well as their fathers did on “Gimme Some Truth”. Christina Aguilera captures the angst of “Mother” with haunting precision, and Los Lonely Boys provide some of the best guitar work on the album’s version of “Whatever gets You Through the Night”. Corinne Bailey Rae provides a beautiful minimalist version of “I’m Losing You”, and Green Day hit a home run with their almost too perfect cover of “Working Class Hero”.

One further point of contention: given the strength of Lennon’s work, and the size of this two disk set. There was no reason to repeat any songs, yet we are given two versions of “Imagine” and two versions of “Gimme Some Truth”. Yes, they are both great songs, but I would have preferred it if each artist did a different song. Someone out there should have come out with a post-metal, post-grunge version of John Lennon’s “Meat City” which is one of the most powerful rockers of the 70’s, bar-none. In fact nothing from the Mind Games album is represented here, leaving out some great songs.

That all said, it is great to see these songs alive and well in the 21st century, where their message of hope and love have never been needed more.
