Thumbs up Sean Lennon's music!!!

Over the years, of which I haven't really been lurking/visiting this board, I have developed a lot of love and respect for Sean's musical growth as an artist.

I of course bought Into The Sun many, many years ago. It wasn't an album I instantly fell in love with. It took some time and a lot of listens to finally win me over. I was taken aback by the mellowness of some of the songs interspersed between the heavy guitar on some other songs. But I absolutely loved "Mystery Juice," "Spaceship," and "Queue" instantly. There was no question that, after I had finally come to love that album, Sean's musical abilities impressed me.

Then I got Half Horse Half Musician and everything, absolutely everything, on that EP won me over. I adored it through and through.

Finally, in 2006 when Sean released Friendly Fire and I casually purchased it amidst a busy schedule of work and grad school- not having heard anything from him in like 7 years...I was floored. THIS ALBUM? Absolute masterpiece. I can't even...

Sean gets a lot of unfair and absolutely untrue criticism shot at him for so many dumb reasons: who his parents are, who they're not, his voice, his style, his love life, his personality. Much of it is entirely false. I say this because there is a consensus among many of the younger generation that Sean is some kind of jerk who lives off his father's glory and does the pseudo-hipster thing to appear cooler/smarter/better. NOT TRUE.

I met Sean Lennon 3 months ago after his amazing live set for his band, The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger, with the lovely Charlotte Kemp-Muhl. Sean was friendly, outgoing, humble, and extremely communicative with every single person who stood in line to greet him. He and Charlotte stayed far longer than necessary, they talked to everyone as if they knew them personally, and Sean even accommodated a man who appeared to be a straight-up John/Beatles fan just getting a glimpse of his child in person.

I was amazed and impressed with Sean. His show was brilliant. He was witty, confident, and cool in a way that showed he wasn't trying too hard. He was soooooo sweet to all his fans/casual concert goers, and his style was fabulous.

I really recommend anyone to pick up some of his albums. The first, the SECOND, his mother's album (which he played on and produced), and of course the GOASTT. If per chance you can, see him live. It is worth it. His presence is only a *tad* eerie because he looks a lot like his dad: same face shape, smile, nose, hair texture...and even a slight build. But he is very much his own person.

I wanted to create a post just for Sean because he's truly a gem, very special. His music is simply beautiful. I feel similarly about Julian but in a different way. They're both two pretty cool guys without question.

Any thoughts on Sean?
