5.0 out of 5 stars Bright Shine May 7, 2013
Format:Audio CD
'On My Way to the Sun' is John's follow-up to 'Revolution of Mind' released back in 2009 carrying the Mastedon name also from back in his earlier days. As one reviewer already noted this was fan funded by Kickstarter which I was proudly a contributor. The cd kicks off with the 11 minute epic "This is How the Story Goes" which guest stars Richard Williams and David Ragsdale, both from Kansas. It definitely shows as during the course of the song I really thought I was listening to Kansas and for those out there that wish there would be new Kansas tunes at some point, this might be the closest thing that you might get. From there, the balance of the album is your typical rock oriented tunes with the classic Elefante trademark and to the point lyrics all focusing on what this album is all about. Is this album better than 'Revolution of Mind'? Not sure. For me, personally, I like 'Revolution of Mind' a touch better because it just had a harder edge and as much as I was anticipating the 11 minute song (which I knew would be on this album early on) I'm not sure if measures up to "One Day Down by the Lake" off his previous effort which is just an outstanding song, and to be honest, would be hard to top. Not taking anything away from the album here, it's still a very solid effort on John's part and for those Christian artists out there in the mainstream that think they measure up to John, fat chance. Over the years, John's voice has definitely gotten better and stronger and it would be really cool if the members of Kansas could actually sit down and write an album and have John sing lead. I think today, John would blow away anything he did in the albums 'Vinyl Confessions' and 'Drastic Measures' while he was with Kansas back in the eighties. This is a great album and although I might differ on my personal preference from his last album to this one, it's still a much welcomed release and a breath of fresh air in a market that desperately needs it.

5.0 out of 5 stars John's greatest album to date June 1, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is John's greatest album to date and may even exceed the exceptionally produced "Revolution of Mind" he did a few years ago with his previous band Mastedon. It was really interesting that he chose to put it out by raising money through the Kickstarter online program. With the level of talent he has and the talented people he has around him, I don't think he would have any problem putting out such a quality product with any record company. Maybe he decided he wanted to give the fans something more than just another great album. He should definitely be nominated for a Grammy (not that he is seeking that at all).
This album harkens back to music they really don't produce any more. You would have to go back to the great bands of the late 70's and 80's like Yes, Kansas, Styx, Queen, and Journey. It definitely has its own sound, but you can definitely hear those influences throughout this timeless masterpiece.
Pick up your own copy and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen to the entire album 3 times!!! May 12, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
I don't know what it is about John Elefante's music, but the first listen always has me thinking, it's pretty good. The second listen has me thinking, this is really good. And the third time listening I think, "How did I ever live without this album". There is a very strange affection and connection that occurs when listening to a John song. It bores straight into your heart and let's you connect to a truth beyond words. It doesn't make sense but it's sooo real and easy to relate to. If at first the songs seem a little disjointed and forced, listen 2 more times!!!! Don't sell yourself short. This album is nothing short of inspired and brilliant. Oh, and for the Kansas connection, this simply blows the Kansas days away (And I'm a huge Kansas, Streets, AD, Livgren, Pack fan. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar! May 10, 2013
By Zachary
Format:MP3 Music
John's voice hasn't deteriorated in the slightest - his vocals are rich and soaring, with lush harmonies and guitars that hearken back to the glory days of classic Christian rock. And his songwriting... man, this boy doesn't mince words. From the first track to the last, John's passionate lyrics cut home and put the vast majority of "Christian Contemporary Music" to a sorry shame. None of this pandering ambiguity in the name of "art" or "maturity" - John tells it like it is and doesn't leave any room for doubt. And all with a mastery that leaves many self-professed "artists" in the proverbial dust.
