Hence their namesake, The Claypool Lennon Delirium is comprised of bassist and campfire marauder Les Claypool alongside Sean Lennon. The very idea of this entourage is almost like a weird dream come true, although the project's full-length debut record Monolith of Phobos can occasionally say otherwise. It's by no means terrible and it does boast okay staying power, but the songwriting on display is underwhelming in spots coupled with the realization that they aren't many standouts. As a consolation prize, Claypool Lennon Delirium's first studio album is nice background material and there are moments where the instrumentation gets a chance to earn that muddy spotlight. I would suggest this to diehard Les Claypool fans and Sean Lennon supporters only, whoever you are. Angel recommends: "The Monolith of Phobos," "Boomerang Baby," "Breath of a Salesman," and "Captain Lariat".
