All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Forget for a moment that Sean Lennon is the son of John Lennon. Forget that he's the heir apparent to St. John's position as "the voice of a generation" (Julian was forced to abdicate the throne after his albums simply stopped selling).

Lennon's ideas are often good. Into the Sun is a promising record -- suggesting that Lennon will be able to deliver a better one quite soon.

    Awesome!

    I bought this CD a few months ago after going through a period of John lennon madness... I defenitly hear some of his father in Seans way of singing, much more than in Julians music. He uses a lot of comparisons to his fathers work. if you look for it, you'll see it too. An excelent example of how you can make it yourself, veen if you are the son of a man as great as John Lennon. Besides, Seans closer to my age an he's very good looking! Buy this CD today!
