When I first heard this album all the way through, my first thought was "Finally! An entire album devoted to the obvious fact that we are all going to die someday*!" The more I listen to it, the more I love it. It's so representative of every aspect of George, and in such a beautiful way. You hear everyone talking about specific tracks, and how the rest are lesser than, but in reality, all of the tracks are so amazing that you can't pick a favorite.

*A longtime obsession of mine that no one else wants to hear me talk about, for some reason.

I can't say I'm exactly obsessed with everyone's eventual death, but it's definitely a major reality which I try hard to acknowledge (and I like to think I do pretty well).

Couldn't agree more, by the way. This album was definitely George's mission statement piece.

Very well said.
I would like to notice also that "The Art Of Dying "is imo one of the most impressive and meaningful rock song ever written.
George was in fact a moral philosopher: his life was all about a search for truth, and preparing himself for death,has said Eric Idle.i agree
To me ,George  becides his musical talent ,was an authentic,sincere,genuine spiritual seeker.

indelibly engraved in my mind's hard disk two sequences of "Living in a material world"

1-George talking about thoughts he had after that terrible night in 30 Dec 1999,and his laugh at the end..
2-Olivia's statement about the experience she had at the moment he left his body.
George was special ,very special.........................................

I agree. I wonder whether it was mostly George's experiences that turned him into the philosopher he became, or whether it was always there within him. Probably a mixture of both. One thing I always notice in his music is a sense of great wisdom, far beyond his years. I mean, he was only twenty six when he wrote While My Guitar Gently Weeps , but it sounds like it was composed by some ancient god observing the humans beneath them like ants, or something.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 And it was that very wisdom beyond his years that often got him branded as 'holier than thou', because it tended to go over the heads of most of his peers and audience. There's something of the misunderstood prophet in him, I think.

And he knew it, too. Hence his little trick with the backing vocals of My Sweet Lord , where he started with "hallelujah" and subtly transitioned to "hare Krishna."

I'm afraid I don't understand...? what do you mean about the backing vocals there? I always assumed that he was conveying a sort of spirituality-regardless-of-faith message there.

"I did the voices singing 'Hallelujah' first and then the change to 'Hare Krishna' so that people would be chanting the Maha Mantra – before they knew what was going on!"

- George himself

I still don't fully see how that relates to my post, but okay. Typically cheeky of him, he had a far better sense of humour than most knew at the time.

I was referring to the going-over-people's-heads part, and how he sorta took advantage of that in a typically Georgish way.

I've been reading through some earlier posts in this thread and I've noticed that nobody seems to like the Apple Jam. This is rather confusing to me, as I love the Apple Jam. How come no one likes it? ahdn_george_01

I think the Apple Jams sound good, but they take up an entire record and increase the price of the album.

I don't mind them, but (except in the case of the White Album ) I generally prefer shorter, more concise albums. If I want to hear jamming, then I usually seek out a live album or something.

This is definitely George’s most beloved album. Its probably my favorite as well although in places Phil Spector does too much as washes away the essence of the song.
