Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - p.68
4 stars out of 5 -- "His viola-toned voice, with its patient, Brazilian-like delivery, is sweet and distinctive."
Rolling Stone - p.108
Ranked #41 in Rolling Stone's "The Top 50 Albums Of 2006" -- "Sean's boyish, nasally voice is a near-spittin' image of his dad's RUBBER SOUL-ballad croon."
Spin - p.102
3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] nicely textured album of wistful waltzes, rainy-day ballads, and pinwheel pop tunes."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.104
4 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] comes on like a more lovelorn REVOLVER, its carefully crafted songs packing stately strings, Ringo-esque drum fills and a melodic potency and chordal know-how that requires little embellishment."

On his second album--released eight years after the well received INTO THE SUN--Sean Lennon displays a talent for memorable tunes and varied arrangements that create a surprising amount of momentum despite the overall mid-tempo mellowness. Moods shift gently from the unhurried, synth-driven "Parachute" (which echoes Radiohead) to the ragged folk-rock of "Headlights," with its killer off-kilter chord progression, to the haunting "Spectacle," which makes surprisingly subtle use of a string section and Hammond organ. In the eight years between albums, Lennon's voice matured into an expressive instrument capable of nuanced crooning as well as more straight-ahead piano-pop balladry. His songcraft also shows a leap in sophistication, as demonstrated on "Friendly Fire," whose compelling, ascendant melody gives way to a powerful full-band chorus. The second disc of the set contains videos for each song on the album, rendered with as much sensitivity and creativity as the music.
