Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 80/500!

Imagine is the second album by John Lennon. Recorded and released in 1971, it tended towards songs that were gentler, more commercial and less primal rock than those on his previous album, the critically acclaimed John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band. The album is considered the most popular of his works. In 2012, Imagine was voted 80th on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".

Not that great

This SHM-SACD version of Imagine is not great sounding. It is likely the master. The song Imagine itself is quite noisy. I don't have a problem paying a premium price for great quality sound, but I don't think you are getting that with this SACD.

Reviewer: Clive
This single layer release demonstrates the excellence possible with this format. The piano really is realistic and despite very good bass extension those lower notes are tight and do not over dominate. During the orchestral sections the textures are amazing and with the slow tempo it sounds emotional. The sound stage and depth is well balanced giving a good sense of spatial accuracy in the placing of the performers. This represents a significant advance upon the two MFSL CD versions and has the warmth of MFSL LP. A bounce that will interest collectors' are the inserts that I have not seen since the original release of this Album. Worth the price and will quickly go out of print.
