First comments

  • Is it "avant garde" or "avant-garde"?
  • "Following Lennon's wife, Cynthia Lennon, going on holiday,..." reads very poorly to me. Needs some copyedit.
  • "Lennon and Ono's debut album is known not only for its avant garde content, but also for its cover. The album cover features Lennon and Ono " really repetitive. Lennon, Ono, album cover repeated so quickly, consider a re-word.
  • "To calm down the controversy" -> "In an attempt to avoid the controversy..."
  • "The album.... The album...." repetitive prose.
  • "Beatle John Lennon met " you don't need Beatle.
  • ", thanks to its owner, John Dunbar" would be better phrased to say that it was as a result of Lennon being asked to preview an exhibition rather than this slightly journalistic prose.
  • "The album itself begun..." no, the album didn't begin, perhaps the first stages of the creation of the album began?
  • "when Ono had mention her curiosity into Lennon's" terrible English I'm afraid.
  • "Lennon then proceeded to play her " -> "Lennon then played her...
  • " the rest of the Beatles wouldn't allow" -> "the other Beatles would not".
  • "Ono was awestruck and" sounds POV so needs quotes and attribution.
  • " the pair do their own" make their own.
  • "was an attempt for Lennon" attempt by.
  • "With Ono's Grapefruit in mind, Lennon and Ono had"... "With Ono's Grapefruit in mind, she and Lennon had"

Cutting the review short here I'm afraid. It needs a serious copyedit, perhaps the guild can help? It's a fail at this time. 17:59, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
