The Claypool Lennon Delirium’s South Of Reality Review

On their debut album Monolith Of Phobos, The Claypool Lennon Delirium — a collaboration between Primus singer / bassist Les Claypool and singer / guitarist Sean Lennon — the tunes fell into three distinct categories: songs that employed the latter’s penchant for Beatles-esque harmonies and psychedelia, ones dominated by Claypool’s distinctive bass and vocals, and a couple that deftly mixed them together. But while there’s plenty of the former and the latter on South Of Reality (CD, vinyl, digital), their second full-length collection of originals, Claypool fans hoping for more of the middle will be disappointed.
