Yoko Ono, 'Yes, I'm a Witch' (Astralwerks)

6
Yes, I'm a Witch
Critical Mass
Label: astralwerks

by James Hunter

Contemporary tinkerers such as the Flaming Lips, Peaches, and Cat Power overhaul original Yoko Ono tracks on this hybrid tribute album; and while the results are mixed, they all retain the flowing quiver of Ono's inimitable vocals. Blow Up give "Every Man Has a Woman Who Loves Him" a vaguely Western New Order gallop; Le Tigre giddily disco-fy "Sisters O Sisters"; Porcupine Tree make "Death of Samantha" gothlike. Mostly grainy rhythm-conscious pop rock, the collection manages to achieve formal freedom, hit-record verve, and one woman's personal super-natural.
