Easily his second-best album (after All Things Must Pass), and considering The Traveling Wilburys Volume I came straight off of the back of it, easily George's most satisfying period of work since the early '70s. Love the album.

Of the George albums I own (not nearly enough), this is my second favorite, behind of course ATMP.

Great album. I know some fans feel Jeff Lyne over produced it and made it sound a lot like ELO but a fantastic album all the same. My favorite is 'If That's What It Takes'. 

As I said in a different post recently, 'ATMP' and 'CN' always get the most favorable reviews but I also like 'George Harrison' and 'Thirty-Three 1/3' a lot also. His songs generally always have a spiritual message attached though sometimes he does have some fun with a few song's lyrics. That George Harrison sense of humor. Check out the lyrics to 'Cockamamie Business'. He definitely was not a big fan of the music business.

This is probably the one Jeff Lyne project that doesn't bother me, like he was restrained in his production so it didn't become the same as everything else he's ever done. 'Poor Little Girl' tho reminded me first of 'Every Little Thing' then 'You Got It' then then later sounded like most of Lyne's work on 'Brainwashed'a-hard-days-night-paul-3.

Cheer Down is another from this period that is up amongst the best stuff George ever did. 

The line "didn't want to be a star - wanted just to play guitar" from 'Cockamamie Business' very neatly sums up George. Another song i love of his and deserved more than just being one of the new tracks on his 'Best of Dark Horse' collection.
