RAINI ARBO & DAISY MAYHEM

Big Old Life

2007-08-13

Rani Arbo & her band Daisy Mayhem combines roots musical with a spiritual feel that makes the listeners cry out this is a Big Old Life. The band starts out with the strongest track on the disc “Joy Comes Back”. This track combines Cajun sounds with a Donna the Buffalo feel. Rani’s alto vocals prove to be strong through the entire disc & her fiddle playing ads to the feel good sounds found on this disc. My only complaint was many of the tracks in the middle were a little subdued & I would have loved to hear Rani kick it up a notch as on the opening track, That being said, this is Rani’s most consistent & strongest offering to date.
