Lennon solo wasn't exactly earth-shattering - besides Plastic Ono Band

Jakob's first album is all right, if a bit unexciting. The Wallflowers' "Rebel Sweetheart" is one of my all time favourite albums.

Bob was rather political, and his music is much more coarse, much harder. Jakob's seems to be very much softer, much closer to Iron & Wine and that lot.
I see what you're saying, if you really want to dissect their styles. But generally, they aren't that different. And Bob was only really topically political for his first few years.

And what exactly do you mean about Bob being "coarse"? I mean, I understand, but he was also very soft too. Maybe this is a little more Jakob-esque for you.

maybe so. But even the best Ono song isn't half as good as the worst Lennon song.

Never could understand how anyone can see any talent in Yoko.

Haven't heard enough of Jakob's work to form a strong opinion. His music sounds a bit like the softer side of Springsteen to me, and as I don't care much for Springsteen I'm lukewarm (so far) to Jakob. He does seem really grounded for someone with such a legendary parent, though.

As for Ono (!): I like Yoko's white chess set and her book Grapefruit and a few of her songs. But that's about it.

i'm fairly lukewarm to both Lennon solo and Ono

but some of her stuff on Milk & Honey isn't bad
