I'd love to hear other's opinions of Brainwashed... Listening to this album (and listening to it again and again) has been one of the most enjoyable musical experiences I've ever had. George certainly still "had it." It's a shame he was taken from us before he could share more of this great music with us. The "middle" of the album ("Looking for My Life," "Rising Sun," "Marwa Blues," and "Stuck Inside a Cloud")is my favorite. The only track I don't care that much for is "Any Road," but even it is growing on me with repeated listenings. The lyrics on the album are both thoughtful and full of wit (in that trademark Harrison style), and the playing is superb. George's voice is stonger than I expected, which is nice. A few of the tracks are slightly too Jeff Lynne-ish for my taste -- it would be interesting to hear George's demos (the style that he had hoped these songs would be presented in). Lynne's production is a minor issue, though, as the album is rich and full and sounds great overall. The alternative might have been Phil Spector, who probably would have turned out an over-layered mess, so all in all I can't complain too much about the production. I opted for the Limited Edition package. I'm glad I did, as it is presented a la the first pressing of All Things Must Pass (in a slightly larger case than ATMP). The accompanying DVD has some great interview and in-the-studio footage with George, Dhani, Jeff Lynne, and Jim Keltner, but my only complaint is that it is far too short at just over 7 minutes. I have a feeling, though, that this footage is only a teaser for something larger yet to come (one can hope at least, right?). At any rate, this is a fine album from start to finish -- one that I can't wait to spin again and again. It is one of George's best. So, that's my take. Feel free to comment (both positvely and negatively).
