AllMusic Review by

Julian Lennon did an about-face on Mr. Jordan, abandoning the polished mainstream pop of his first two albums for a darker, more rock-oriented sound. Lennon also changed his style of singing, choosing a deeper timbre that was eerily reminiscent of David Bowie -- which was appropriate, because the thick guitars that dominated the album were reminiscent of a kinder variation on Bowie's early-'70s hard rock. Although Lennon's new sound was promising, he only came up with one song, the minor hit "Now You're in Heaven," that could support his musical visions.
