Here Is What Is
(Red Floor)
The soundtrack (and DVD) documents Daniel’s year-long journey creating his own music. The CD has snippets of Brian Eno offering words of wisdom about creating music. Some songs sound like they coul or should be sung by other artists---“Lovechild”
channels Aaron Neville’s falsetto; “I Like That” has Bono written all over it. The best songs (“Harry,” “Where Will I Be”), with help from drummer Brian Blades and bassist Daryl Johnson, harken back to the For The Beauty Of Wynona album and showcase the best parts of Lanois’ solo work. This release (without the DVD) may work best as background music and that’s not bad at all.
