Top Albums 2006- #13

Friendly Fire
Sean Lennon

Most people tend to disregard Sean Lennon since he isn’t an artistic replica of his father. But seriously folks, it’s time to give the guy his dues. Ok, ok…he’s not the best singer. And his songwriting, well, lacks something to be desired. But Friendly Fire displays a great knack for melodies that, when given enough spins, sneak up on the unsuspecting listener. The music itself (typical guitar, piano, strings, etc.) sits somewhere between Jon Brion (who lent a hand) and your typical MOR. I’ll admit its sad bastard music, but there’s something appealing about someone willing to put it all out there for others to indulge rather than moping all alone.
