   John and Cynthia Lennon begat Julian, and Julian begat afew solo records that sounded like Phil Collins. John and Yoko Ono begat SeanLennon, and Sean begat "Into the Sun," a debut album that's soimpossibly twee, it sounds like the helium-damaged hijinks of Ween.

YoungSean inherited his parents' appetite for the absurd, but he's more indebted tothe splice-and-dice, anything-goes aesthetic of Beck and Cibo Matto (which he ispart of), whose Yuka Honda produced "Into the Sun."

Sean floatsmile-high vocals and flowery lyrics over bossa nova grooves, guitar freak-outsand the Weeble-jazz of "Sean's Theme," which wobbles but never fallsdown. "Into the Sun" isn't gratuitously weird, just a little mixed up - and all the better for it.
