Dark Horse was released on CD in January Dark Horse received some of the most negative reviews of any release by a Beatle up to that point  and the worst of Harrison's career.
Under the heading "Transcendental Mediocrity",  Jim Miller of Rolling Stone called Dark Horse a "disastrous album" to match the "disastrous tour", and a "shoddy piece of work". And his guru I'll repeat that this album is totally colourless. Just stuff and nonsense. For all this hoarse dork knows There were a number of positive reviews for Dark Horsewith Billboard Album) deeming it a "Spotlight" release. She added: "If the first side had contained the variety and progression of the second, it would be a great album …" .
Taken as a metaphor for the album itself, the plea for tolerance inside the LP sleeve  — "Be kindly Wanderer through this Garden's ways …" — was ridiculed at the time by some critics. Writing in his book The Beatles ForeverNicholas Schaffner found some justification in reviewers' sniping at the "shoddy performance" and "preachy, humorless message" on Dark Horse. Knocking idols off their pedestals makes for excellent copy. Having previously championed Harrison's work sinceRolling Stone would not change its unfavourable verdict on Dark Horse over the ensuing decades, and Harrison never completely forgave the magazine for the treatment he received during this period.
Leng, Album), the first author to write purely on Harrison's career rather than on his standing as a musical celebrity,  considers Dark Horse to be a "remarkably revealing album" and writes: "Any voyeur who wanted to know the intimate details of his personal life didn't need to buy National Enquirerthey just needed to hear this disc.
Reviewing the Apple Years reissue, for Uncut magazine, Richard Williams dismisses Dark Horse as an album that "only a devoted Apple scruff could love",  while Joe Marchese of The Second Disc describes it as "Harrison's earthiest work to date", containing "many stellar moments".
In his review of the Apple Years box set, for Classic Rock magazine, Paul Trynka writes that "The surprise of this set, though, is the albums whose quietness and introspection were out of tune with the mids.

It is hard to hear what he's saying. General Comment but isn't it "Death Before Disco"???? They renamed the song Party Poison for the new album, Gerard said the title felt old.
Flag ajcliburn on November 21, General Comment Hahaha Okay. I updated the formerly hilariously misheard lyrics to the accurate ones from the CD booklet.
General Comment to me this song is definitely about living life to the fullest, it's also about not letting partying consume your life and doing some work such as the lines "Oh, we'd be killing ourselves while sleeping in" and "And all the good times, they give you cancer".
Also Iggy Pop and the Stooges refrences? General Comment Im sorry General Comment Album) think the Japanese part makes it very comical. I love it. Kinda 80's cartoon stuff like Kill Bill. Great concept -- the whole songs in the album seems to be a missile to today's music scene. For me, this song shows a violent attack to some preppy popular party kids. I like that idea. MCR always goes far from safe circle and tries to give big fist to popular lifestyle and crowd. Heil Gerard Arthur!!
