“ ...Fans will enjoy the wide-ranging discussions from Lennon and Ono's various peace protests, to their fad diets, to the experimental, avant-garde art exhibits and eccentric films.”
     —Chris Hicks, Deseret News

“Smith's output as cultural landscape detector and reflector are priceless artifacts of the world that birthed us. Here are artifacts that do not require restoration; they speak with the same resonance today as they did in the before time.”
     —August March, Alibi

“ Imagine dropping in on a private conversation among three friends, expressing opinions on a wide variety of topics, and that summarizes the experience of listening to this eight-disc set. It perfectly encapsulates how Lennon developed artistically and personally in a short time span, and reveals the hidden lives of an otherwise very public couple.”
     —Kit O'Toole, Something Else
