"Lennon Re-Imagined" is the 2nd album from Tom Dean and Rex Fowler´s Lennon tribute band where they cover John Lennon songs, the first album "Lennon Imagined" was released as The John Lennon Song Project but Yoko Ono suggested they should call themselves Nutopians.
I did enjoy the first album and the new one ain´t any different, Dean and Fowler´s band pull off some really nice folk rock versions of Lennon´s classic tunes. I´m glad they not only perform the most popular Beatles hits but also pick a few lesser known songs too, just like the setlist on the first album. I listened to "Re-Imagined"all day at work and I must say that the day passed by really fast.
Thumbs up for their cool covers of "Instant karma", "You´re gonna lose that girl", "Cry baby cry / Bungalow Bill" and "Dear Prudence".
This is music for comfy moments.
