I was very impressed. So, in the recording, John really protected me. He had to. But I was surprised, remembering the old days. Yet his goal this time was to address middle age, and the generation who had grown up with him, and to consider questions — of parenthood, of marriage, of mature relations between the sexes — that pop music scarcely touches.
Double Fantasy was to embrace the future with hope, and treat the past with affection. Yet this was not a one-dimensional depiction of bliss. The remaining songs serve to consolidate this hard-won harmony. John was now in the interesting position of owning his own album, and inviting the record companies to negotiate — preferably through the medium of his wife.
Can you imagine, all the other presidents of record companies could not stand that they had to talk to me. I reported to John. On December 9th,the world awoke to ponder what it had lost. Lennon was also inspired to return to music by his former songwriting partner within The Beatles. Upon hearing former bandmate Paul McCartney 's single " Coming Up ," Lennon deemed the song "a good piece of work". According to McCartney, the track prompted Lennon to return to recording later that year.
Ono approached producer Jack Douglaswith whom the couple had previously worked, and gave him Lennon's demos to listen to. Lennon wanted to work with different musicians than he had previously, and had Douglas assemble and rehearse the band without telling them who they would be recording with.
Carlos of the band Cheap Trick whom he was also producing  to play on Lennon's "I'm Losing You" and Ono's "I'm Moving On", but these were eventually re-recorded with the studio musicians.
The sessions remained top secret. Lennon and Ono still were not signed to a record label and paid for the initial sessions themselves. Immediately, Lennon was inundated with offers from all the major labels. The recording industry was shocked when the couple signed with the newly formed Geffen Records on 22 September  because David Geffen shrewdly insisted on speaking with Ono first and regarded her contributions as equal to Lennon's. He signed them before hearing any of the tracks.
In the US, the single was inching upward in the top 10 before reaching number one following Lennon's death. The tracks were sequenced as a dialogue between Lennon and Ono; one of his songs followed by one of hers.
In the UK album charts, it had peaked at number 14 then slipped to number 46,  while in the US, it had risen to number Upon Lennon's murder, the album jumped to number 1 in the US Billboard chart, where it stayed for eight weeks,  and in the UK, it jumped to number 2, where it remained for seven weeks before finally spending two weeks at number 1.
Initial critical reaction to the album was largely negative. Stokes found the concept and theme to be "basically misogynist" and Kit Rachlis of the Boston Phoenix admitted to being "annoyed" by Lennon and Ono's assumption "that lots of people care deeply" about them. He felt that the use of alternating Ono's improved vocals with Lennon's "makes the union come alive" better than his outspoken, straightforward lyrics and concluded that the album is not great but "memorable and gratifying" as rare, "connubial rock and roll".
Inthe album was ranked number 29 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the greatest albums of the s. Released as a two-disc set, it included a newly remastered copy of the original album along with an alternative version of the album featuring simpler arrangements without the original's lavish production, with cover artwork by Sean Lennon. By stripping down some of the instrumentation, the power of the songs shines through with an enhanced clarity.
