Editorial Reviews

Acoustic Sessions is the debut from The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger (Sean Lennon & Charlotte Kemp Muhl) on their own homegrown label Chimera Music. Like a chimera itself - a mythical two-headed creature - The G.O.A.S.T.T. work from one heart despite having two separate minds. Acoustic Sessions shows their love of quirky and whimsical '60s folk pop, reminiscent at times of Syd Barrett, Incredible String Band and Simon & Garfunkel. G.O.A.S.T.T. weaves narratives around a metaphysical geography of their own devising, finding a surrealist beauty in the mundane. Like Dali's imaginary landscapes, G.O.A.S.T.T.'s world is a beguiling Wonderland and one stunning debut album.

Customer Reviews

The songs are filled with clever wordplay and beautiful harmonies.

I recommend this album to anyone who has heard good things about it or is curious to listening to it, and if not, you can never go wrong with Sean's solo material.
A. Arsenault
Very generous to behold; both extremely endowed artists & would say as a listener I appreciate the sound in my day.

Quiet, lovely music from Sean Lennon and his stunningly beautiful girlfriend, Charlotte Kemp Muhl, who just happens to be a fashion model but also, like Lennon, a very talented singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. This isn't folk, and it's not rock; it is what it is: an album of clever, imitimate songs on which they play sympathetically and harmonize perfectly. Their themes are so odd and fantastic and the songs are so interesting and intricate that they demand repeated listening.

Alas, the CD hasn't sold many copies or gotten much airplay. Because the album and the duo are so understated and because there's so much demand for loud, in-your-face music, they are likely to remain in a small niche (where they seem perfectly happy to stay). As Kemp Muhl aptly describes the music in Rolling Stone magazine, it's "charmingly off-kilter." I enjoy it very much.

On the NPR website, you can watch the duo perform "Jardin du Luxembourg," "Schrödinger's Cat," "Dark Matter, White Noise," and "The World Was Made for Men" in an 18-minute Tiny Desk Concert. The same website also has a video of their performance of "Lavender Road" from an hour-long WNYC interview, together with audio of "Rainbows in Gasoline," "Richard Brown," and other songs.

The interview, presented in its entirety, reveals Lennon to be a sensitive and insightful person. It's particularly touching to hear him speak about the loss of his father, the therapeutic role music played in his childhood, and his natural evolution into a musician. In addition, the MySpace page for Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger has numerous videos, both musical and personal.

I saw them in New York in a small club, and they are great together. I love their harmonies and the quirky songs on the album. I am looking forward to seeing them in Seattle the end of Jan.

I had the pleasure of seeing Sean and Charlotte perform in Woodstock this summer. I was familiar with a few of their songs from Youtube, and when they said they would be releasing an album in the fall, I was excited. The album lived up to my expectations. The songs are filled with clever wordplay and beautiful harmonies. Even if you purchased the single versions of "Rainbows in Gasoline" and "The World Was Made For Men" previously (like I did), don't worry. The album versions are different, so you're still getting your money's worth. :-)

This is a great album to chill out to and forget the world for a while.

Today's music for the most part is like listening to a lot of someone else done by someone else. In Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, you hear the influence of John Lennon and Lennon intonations. A smidgen of some the greats being digested by Sean Lennon but coming out uniquely Sean. Sean's combining the old with the new, with haunting delicate harmonics, lyrics of substance, are reflective not preachy. He demonstrates an awareness of his generation's future possibilities, but his words still dance more like poetry. His compositions are complex and skillful. "Robot Boy" is reflective almost innocent, but sophisticated and experienced in every other aspect. His lyrics are visual, his melodies are a melding of past centuries up into the 21st. " The World Was Made For Men", is just verging on sheer genius. Sean has all the ingredients of the making of one the greatest musicians of the 21th century. He harbors his parents conscience and artistic skills, but shines above both. Lacking the anarchy, he harkens a clairvoyant's lament with an added touch of romanticism making Sean his own man artistically.

Sean has become a great musical force, exc guitarist, and has a crack band with the quite talented Charlotte on keys/vox and majestic CJ on trumpet/horn!
Kinda like mellow psyche-French cabaret a la Syd! Great live too! John would be proud!!!

Surprising me and relatively growing on me everytime I listen since I've purchased.. the harmonies are at once modern and melodic. Opens the opaque wall from time to time in refreshing optimism. Instrumentation beautiful as a thorny forest. Very generous to behold; both extremely endowed artists & would say as a listener I appreciate the sound in my day. High notes impossible--as in, ENCHANTING? GREAT!!

While I've always liked Sean Lennon, I always thought he was not quite as talented as his brother Julian. This wonderful CD, done with his girlfriend Charlotte Kemp Muhl, is Sean's best work yet and may give Julian a run for his money. Despite the heavy-sounding name, the music is fine acoustic-based folk-rock. I wish Julian's next full-length CD would come out soon. Now, if the brothers would only do something together...

I'd been waiting for this album to come out ever since NPR covered GOASTT. Their live performance in WNYC (Google for: ["Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger: Odd Charm" "WNYC"]) was amazingly good-- far better than this album, actually. Also, the non-acoustic version of Jardin du Luxembourg (Google for: ["Jardin Du Luxembourg - The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger" "ChimeraMusic"] is, in my opinion, much better than the still very good acoustic version. All that said, this is a good album. It is definitely laid-back and quirky but if that's what you want, it is a great fit.
