DANIEL LANOIS

Belladonna

2006-01-09

Rich soundscapes, almost like a soundtrack to a movie existing only in the composer's head, (or the listener's) populate this record. Steel guitar is out front creating most of the texture, but there are other things going on here, (check out guest list), piano, human voice here and there, percussion, etc. Definite influence is evident of having spent time in Mexico as well as having recorded this there. This will sound more familiar to fans of Lanois' earlier work than to those whose initial contact with him was Shine, from a year or so ago. This isn't the most radio friendly release, but late-nighters and those looking to end a set with something relaxed will find plenty on here. -Eric Green
