Just plain well written, performed- lovely!
Thea Holmgren
Musically he also has matured even more from "Mr. Jordan" and seems to have finally found his niche with "Help Yourself".
J. Williams
Gotta say I like this song much more than expected.

Perhaps it just became popular to over-criticize Julian Lennon's work in the late eighties and early nineties, and that's too bad because the young Mr. Lennon put out some great music in those years.
Help Yourself includes a wide variety of musical styles from the bizarre "New Physics Rant," to the beat driven "Get a Life," to the beautifully melodic "Would You." It is also a rather intelligent album tackling issues of dealing with difficult people in "Listen," dealing with your own problems in "Help Yourself," the environment in "Saltwater," politics in "Imaginary Lines," relationships in "Other Side of Town," and insecurities in "Take Me Home."
Julian Lennon stretches some musical muscle on this album, both in terms of lyrics and score, and what came of that is a truly excellent album. Unfortunately, lack of commericial promotion by the record company has left this work in the shadows all these years.
If you already have Photograph Smile and you're looking for another CD by this artist, this is the one to get.

With his fourth cd, Help Yourself, Julian Lennon created his landmark recording. Always being compared to his father, Julian broke from his father's music and created a niche for himself. The excellent "Salt Water", "Listen", "Take Me Home", "Keep The People Working", "Imaginary Lines" and "Would You" make this Julian's most solid effort. 1999's Photograph Smile is a close second, but it isn't as original as Help Yourself. Here, Lennon matures musically and lyrically, creating a classic recording. This is a must have for any rock collector.

While Photograph Smile is by far and away the best work of Julian Lennon's career, Help Yourself is a close second. This body of work shows him moving toward his current sound, with his melodies and lyrics showing a maturing and depth previously only glimpsed. Several of the songs were emotionally haunting. You can hear and feel the loneliness in Take Me Home and the despair and heartache in Maybe I Was Wrong - both are beautiful songs. Help Yourself is an upbeat and catchy anthem of taking control of your own life. Saltwater makes you think about world problems without being preachy - I found the verse "what will I think of me the day that I die" to be very profound and thought provoking. The cuts show a versatility in style and voice - I thought he had definitely improved and matured as a singer, as well as a songwriter. This CD got better with every listen and I recommend it to anyone who liked Photograph Smile.

(actually 4 1/2 stars) OK, here's a review for all of you out there (and you know who you are!) who voted my little essay on JL's Photograph Smile as "not helpful" because you didn't like what I said about Julian (which I didn't think was all that negative) and not because you found the review helpful in regards to whether you wanted to buy the CD or not... When this came out nine years ago, nobody expected anything from Julian. Atlantic had already given up on him as a viable cash source, as evidenced by the lack of promotion this album recieved, and apparently Jules himself adopted a "what the hell" attitude toward his career. So it seemed he had nothing to lose at this stage. To the interested observer, however, there was a definite progression in his work from the inanities of Valotte and Secret Value of Daydreaming to the almost Bowieesque Mr.Jordan (where the few people who were still listening began to perk up a little...there are some fine songs on Jordan, there just aren't enough of 'em!)...and everyone was hoping Julian's new one would continue the slow march to respectablilty. The first thing I heard from Help Yourself was when I saw the video for Saltwater late on MTV one night. I was amazed by its beautiful melody (with its Harrisong slide accompaniment) and nice vocal work...and the video was nicely understated and moving as well. This time, I knew Jules had something going on. When the radio station I where I worked got a couple of promo copies, I took one home and listened to it for months. Couldn't stop! This was Lennon's best batch of songs ever: Rebel King, Bowieish again...Read more ›

By making this purchase, I have finally completed my collection of Julian Lennon albums. Except, of course, for his new album that is due to be released sometime this year. ;)

After only listening to "Help Yourself" the first time through, I have already come to love this CD just as much as I do his previous ones and "Photograph Smile". With "Mr. Jordan" Julian was trying to find himself musically and vocally; but on "Help Yourself", he's trying to find himself more personally. As you listen to it, it takes you on his personal journey of self-discovery. Musically he also has matured even more from "Mr. Jordan" and seems to have finally found his niche with "Help Yourself".

I love all the songs on this album! Even the very odd "New Physics Rant" has a charm to it that makes it a fun song to listen to. The Girl Scouts troop singing backup is so cute. :)

Although, I guess if I had to choose my most favorite songs from this album, they would be: Saltwater, Get A Life, Would You, Maybe I Was Wrong, Help Yourself, Listen, Other Side Of Town, Take Me Home, Imaginary Lines & Keep the People Working. I told you I love them all. I think I mentioned almost all of them. :)

As with "Mr. Jordan", it is a real shame that Atlantic Records didn't promote this better. I keep asking myself..."What were these people thinking?!" If it had been promoted better, I think it would have done very well. Shame on them. :/

So if you love Julian's music, you will definitely love this album just as much as his others. It's a definite, must have, for any Julian fan. :)
