Not Brainwashed Yet
Glenna Meredith | Gilbert, AZ | 04/01/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Hey, there used to be reviews of this album but they've disappeared, as have the ratings. Most of them were in the 4 & 5 star range.

The album is a success, and the music is pure Harrison. In the midst of life changing events George Harrison was writing the music that would mark the end of his career and his life on this earth. It's riveting and emotional, and for a long time I avoided it because it was such a deep and penetrating piece of work.

Now I cherish it for it's honesty and complexity. George Harrison didn't skimp when it came to his opinions, and his observations about (his)life and the never ending search for God are as evident here as they were on Living In The Material World, with the added wisdom of the sage that he had become.

If you are already a George fan, don't miss this fine album that is full of beautiful melody, thoughtful and sometimes whimsical lyrics, and the expected mesmerizing slide guitar that he perfected.

If you're new to his music and considering this, be prepared for a luxurious musical experience. George was a classic, and this solidifies his place in modern music's hall of fame."
Inside George
Nowhere Man | 04/02/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of George Harrison's most complex, imaginative, eclectic, diverse yet homogenous album. It is so revelatory about George's mind, soul, musical spirit, love, integrity and quests that it could be entitled "Inside George." Indeed, the dedicated musician, the spiritual seeker, the insightful intellect, the dry humourist reveals with every song.

All the songs on the album are catchy and savantly arranged, but three of them excel, in my opinion, in rendering George's genius and moods: his luminous spirit sparkles in Pisces Fish; nostalgia, regrets, and introspection blend in the beautiful Looking For My Life, whereas his flamaboyant irony and mystical tendencies dance together like in a raga rhythm in Brainwashed.

Any Road, with the "Give me plenty of that guitar" introduction is light, rythmical and exhales good mood and serenity.

P2 Vatican Blues is at least interesting - the subject is daring if not taboo, the lyrics remind of his irony in Piggies and the melody is really catchy with its tasty guitar riff.

Rising Sun, maybe the most Beatlesque song in this album - strongly autobiographical if you dig beneath the cryptic lyrics; heavy and inspirational.

Marwa Blues, colourful, soulful, larger than life, wonderful instrumental. The guitars are fantastic.

Stuck Inside a Cloud, so luminous despite its inherent sadness. Like a ray of hope or a beautiful memory for the condemned, the lost, the unhappy ones.

Run So Far - gentle and sweet as George himself. Hunting tune, wonderful performance. His voice is just splendid in this song. "Lonely days, blue guitar"...

I'll Never Get Over You, enigmatic to say the least. It reminds of Something for some reason. The guitars are incredible in this song.

Devil in the Deep Blue Sea, maybe his most McCartney song. (Sounds a bit like Paul's inpired from the `30's Honey Pie on the White Album). Serene, light and smiley.

Rocking Chair In Hawaii, a bit country, a bit blues, joyful, relaxing and dreamy.

No exaggeration: Brainwashed is one of the best Rock albums of our times. Addictive. Haunting.
