this is a definitive soundtrack/document of the era of consciousness-raising & a radical critique of the family structure during a period of separation from lennon.

On such songs as the righteous chant “Woman Power,” the empathetic ballad “Angry Young Woman,” the hilarious proto-grrrl “Potbelly Rocker,” & the satirical “Men Men Men,” Ono sings in surprisingly straightforward fashion about the burdens carried by women & the mandate for feminism. this is perhaps Yoko’s most accessible album, & her most intimate. the record was recorded during the time when the avant-garde visionary artist became estranged from her rock-star husband John Lennon. He plays only briefly on the album (billed as Johnny O’cean); she produced & wrote all the songs. the album’s hard themes are delivered soft rock style, or as soft as Yoko could get – think of ‘Feeling the Space’ as ‘Tapestry’ with talons, or the second-wave godmother of ‘Lemonade’.
