Yoko Ono Yes I'm a Witch
- Words: David Ma
- Label: Astralwerks
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
The former Mrs. Lennon is still completely bizarre, but that's always been a good thing. This collaborative project-with Peaches, Hank Shocklee, DJ Spooky, Le Tigre, and others-is generally evenhanded, allowing Ono to sing, scream, chat, and whisper over an array of soundscapes. Whether rambling over The Polyphonic Spree's symphonic rock ("You and I") or crooning alongside Cat Power ("Revelations"), Ono's mood and lyrics mesh without sounding forced. Aside from a few awkward tracks, Ono's latest is another cool tidbit in her storied, bewitching career.
