Easily the most experimental of Yoko Ono's '70s solo albums, the two-disc, 95-minute FLY is nonetheless considerably more structured and accessible than her earlier, deliberately chaotic collaborations with John Lennon, such as 1968's TWO VIRGINS. Recorded with the core personnel of the Plastic Ono Band, including Lennon, Ringo Starr, and Klaus Voorman, FLY veers from relatively straightforward songs like "Midsummer New York" and the rueful "Mrs. Lennon" through more challenging fare like an extended take of "Don't Worry Kyoko (Mummy's Only Looking For Her Hand in the Snow." There's also the hypnotic "Don't Count the Waves" and the avant-garde selections "Toilet Piece/Unknown," "Telephone Piece," and the extended title track. The album's highlight is the surprisingly poppy "Hirake," originally titled "Open Your Box." The CD reissue contains two bonus tracks, "Between the Takes" and "Will You Touch Me."
