Rock n Roll Consciousness is an album about love-if not an album of love songs per se. Moore isn’t singing to his girlfriend here-he’s addressing mythical goddesses and the mystique of big cities at night and the changing of the seasons. Like The Best Day, the new record features lyrical contributions from London poet Radio Radieux, whose cosmic vocabulary-with its references to the prophetess, peyote walkers, magic drums, and vibration love -allows Moore to mine the ecstatic without losing his ageless, dead-cool drawl. Aphrodite, meanwhile, feels like an entire song spun out of the staccato, pin-pricked climax to Marquee Moon, until Googe’s hypnotic bass breakdown goads Moore and Sedwards to engage in some wah-wah warfare
Although the chaotic sessions that spawned this album have passed into rock & roll legend and the recording's very genesis (as an out-of-court settlement between John Lennon and an aggrieved publisher) has often caused it to be slighted by many of the singer's biographers, Rock 'n' Roll, in fact, stands as a peak in his post-Imagine catalog: an album

On Rock ‘n’ Roll, John Lennon does nothing but interpret old rock. The Beatles didn’t care whether they got the music right so long as they got the feeling. Lennon can recreate the music correctly ( Be-Bop-A-Lula ), but never catches the feeling. In making an album about his past, he has wound up sounding like a man without a past. If I didn’t know better, I would have guessed that this was the work of just another talented rocker who’s stumbled onto a mysterious body of great American music that he truly loves but doesn’t really understand. There was a time when he did.
