Sean Lennon

Music reviewer Tom Moon says that the debut album from Sean Lennon, the son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, shows the influence of both his parents on his music. The album, called "Into the Sun," synthesizes the harmonies and pop hooks of classic rock acts like the Beach Boys and the Beatles with more esoteric, electronic sounds. Moon says it's an interesting approach to pop music history that doesn't sound derivative or cloying. (STATIONS: "Into the Sun" by Sean Lennon is available on Grand Royal/Capitol compact discs, catalogue number CDP 7243 4 94551 2 2.) (4:00) ((ST
