The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger

Perhaps someday John and Yoko's kid won't have to jump through hoops to prove he's got something of his own to say. In fact, Sean Lennon has been doing just that for several years now; his duo with longtime partner Charlotte Kemp Muhl as The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger proves again his well-versed individuality in the contemporary meltdown-rock stakes. The pair's just-out Midnight Sun on Lennon's own Chimera label is highly crafted, proggy psychedelia loaded to bursting with aurally surprising twists and turns, stamped heavily with the more arty rock of the '60 and '70s, among a kaleidoscope of other sources (including The Beatles, which makes sense, after all). Quite an accessibly hard-rocking affair, too, Midnight Sun at its best tells intriguing new stories and devises shining new shapes.
