After Yoko Ono's disastrous 1994 musical New York Rock, we can be forgiven for dismissing her as a rich widow. But if you're smart enough to understand that she's always had her own musical gift, you'll be pleased to learn that Rising (Capitol), the follow-up to Season of Glass, was worth the wait. Anchored by Sean Ono Lennon's sparse guitar, Rising is Ono's first pop album to make the most of her avant-garde vocals, which the world has finally caught up to. Its best songs are clear, stark, graceful and possessed by the right spirits.
