It's so similar in parts that at the very least George has taken 'Down To The River' and used the framework to create 'Rocking Chair In Hawaii', which is one of the best songs of George's catalogue.

The other day, it was beautifully cloudy and mist-enshrouded and magical. I knew it was a sort of day which begged to be rambled about in with this album as a soundtrack, so ramble with ATMP in the headphones I did, and went much farther than I usually walk. It was the most beautiful walk I've ever taken... almost transcendental. I felt like I fell into another dimension, even though it was just my boring little suburban neighbourhood, transformed by the mist and the music.

When I was discovering the Beatles around 1989 or 1990, this album was at its low ebb critically. Maybe it just seemed unfashionable at that time, as some of the music of that time seems now. I had read, for example, Tim Riley's then-recent Beatles book, Tell Me Why , in which he's very rough on the solo careers of everyone except John. (While much of his musical analysis is excellent in the main part of the book, sometimes he reaches in his dismissals in the solo years, e.g., a claim that Paul's "Mamunia" is a retread of "Rain ." I hear nothing similar in the songs, other than lyrics concerned with rain.) Anyway, he painted a picture of ATMP as a dour, monotonous relic that should have been edited down for a strong single LP.  

I ended up being more in line with the critical consensus of 1970 than with what I was reading in that period. Listeners at the time of its release must have had every reason to expect a brilliant solo career from George. Of 17 songs (one of them included twice), I love about 12, and like some of the others, and there really isn't a track I hate. "I Live for You," the outtake on the 30th-anniversary release, would have been a strong addition. Spector's production here is more effective than his salvage job on Let It Be . I don't think George had the strongest or most colorful voice in the Beatles, but Spector's swaths of ornate instrumentation have an effect of cosseting rather than overwhelming him. I'm aware that the production history of this album is controversial, and Spector was said to be at his most erratic during the sessions, so I have no idea how much was Spector and how much was Harrison producing himself.   

But once was enough for the jam session (missed opportunity; they should have just covered some of their '50s favorites), and I agree that that remake of "My Sweet Lord " on the reissue is for completists only.

They should do a deluxe album box set of this album.

love this album. Every track is amazing! I can’t believe Paul and John weren’t into the title song. I’d have to say my favourite is probably What Is Life, but it’s a hard choice between the first few songs, they all are so... ROCKIN’. 

(My mom had a vinyl copy of it that she bought for a paper she wrote on George, which she says was horribly written, but she LOST IT. SHE LOST ONE OF MY FAVOURITE ALBUMS. My anger about this whole situation is immeasurable)
