Editorial Reviews

2013 release from John & Yoko's son. Sweeping orchestral arrangements, surf guitar, epic superhero themes & a touch of eerie that recalls Twin Peaks. All of these diverse elements blend seamlessly together on Sean Lennon's Alter Egos film score - the musical backdrop for a comedic alternate reality that flips the superhero genre on its head. Lennon acts as both composer and performer on the 20 song soundtrack. Miho Hatori (Cibo Matto) lends her voice talents on a few tracks.

I couldn't wait for Amazon to release this soundtrack, so late in 2012, I ordered ALTER EGOS directly from the Chimera Music Web site. It is a wonderful soundtrack, with selections running the gap from '50s rock to modern indie rock to jazz to classical to country. Like Sean's previous soundtrack, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead, it features his girlfriend Charlotte Kemp Muhl, his former girlfriend Yuka Honda, and many others. James McCartney plays guitar on the track "Conspiracy," so we get a 21st Century Lennon/McCartney collaboration - sort of.

If the Hollywood studios ever take notice, Sean could easily become the next Henry Mancini or John Williams - he is that talented.

Making no attempt to ape either of his parents' musical output, Sean has written and produced yet another masterpiece here. Terrific, moody orchestration. The collage-overlap editing and sequencing adds considerably to the pleasure of listening to this Henry Mancini-meets-Phillip Glass soundtrack that evokes Cibo Matto and New Order in spots. The sound quality of the vinyl lp a impressive as well. I can't recommend this album enough!

Sean is one of a few people walking this planet whose music i am genuinely excited to listen to. On his very first album way back when there were bits and pieces of chords and lyrics and vibes that led me to think of him as a kind of kindred spirit. Someone probably raised under a lot of the same musical umbrellas as me. And with some very rainy days, with the umbrella being the only thing making any sense. And then knowing when to fold it up and just get wet. I'll admit straightaway I know nothing about the film, didn't know it existed. Here goes the record. Main Theme is playing. Great piece. Sean has always been great with majors to minors and back. Exciting drums..nice trumpet melody. Love the brass tones. Definitely great film scoring. My Hero. Funny, this is the kind of song I have always wished Sean would do, a little 50's jam. I love the production. Clean and perfect. This is how records should sound. I secretly wish Sean would write 10 songs like this and make a record. This is probably a bit tongue in cheek but will be some people's favorite song. It's cool that this ia film soundtrack because all the songs probable have to be pretty short and to the point. Ok, The Killer. Wow, what a great build...again, expertly done in terms of film music. Lovely build, the choice of instruments and sounds is great. Not a lot of reverb, if any, which is intimate and also daring. A bit of Philip Glass mixed in with stuff he would never do. Sean likes melodies to morph and change and not repeat and throw you small surprises in terms of subtle changes. THis is a skill. It's difficult to apply to pop music. I felt some of his songs on Friendly Fire were a wall of subtlety. hard to find a way in. I understand this. But in this context, it's cool. Ok Fridge Walks. Is that Quest Love on the drums?Read more ›
