Mind Games like Walls and Bridges were my two least favourite John lennon albums, certainly a few good songs but MG was under produced as WaB was over produced…docsmith Loading Mark Drummond Brady Wednesday 17 January Roll on John!

Under the moniker of " The Plastic U. Mind Games was recorded between July and August in Lennon's characteristic quick fashion, and was mixed over a two-week period. The album continued Lennon's previous attempts to chronicle his life through his songs,  the tone of which displays a range of mixed feelings. Other songs on the album are more light-hearted and optimistic, marking the return of Lennon's humour and wit after the uncompromising doctrine espoused on Some Time in New York City.
The song " Mind Games ", with its "love is the answer" refrain and call to "make love not war", recalls Lennon's work with the Beatles in Lennon's version remained unreleased until 's posthumous Menlove Ave. Lennon created the Mind Games album cover himself, hand-cutting the photos. The front and back covers are similar; on the back sleeve Lennon is more toward the foreground, representing his symbolic walking away from Ono and her apparent mountainous influence on him.
While finding the music "listenable", Landau identified the album's lyrics as "misguided in so underrating his audience's intelligence" and added: "But then, perhaps Lennon's didacticism, preaching and banality are part of the mind game of the album's title …"  More impressed, Melody Maker ' s Ray Coleman found that "The raw nerves of a Lennon battered by America's curious logic and sheer hard-heartedness seem to have spurred him to write incisively …" Coleman concluded of Mind Games : "Musically or melodically this may not be a stand-out album, but if you warm to the rasping voice of Lennon and, like me, regard him as the true fulcrum of much of what came from his old group, then like any new Lennon album, it will be enjoyable and even important.
It sounds like out-takes from Imagine , which may not seem so bad but means that Lennon is falling back on ideas intellectual and musical that have lost their freshness for him: Still, the single works, and let's hope he keeps right on stepping. While noting the singer's attempts to re-create "the lyricism and melodic inventiveness" of Imagine , Carr and Tyler continued: "The reason the total album is not more effective can be laid at the door of Lennon's personal situation, and on his tendency to react to events, instead of initiating them.
In a more recent review, for AllMusic , critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine writes that "confusion … lies at the heart of the album. Lennon doesn't know which way to go, so he tries everything. Lennon himself later said: "The Mind Games single is fine, but there's just no energy to sustain through the album and there's no clarity of vision. That cover says more than the record to me. The album was reissued in the US on Capitol Records in and , with the latter being a budget reissue.
