Snake Road (CD)

Snake Road (CD)
When you have a superstar for a brother, it’s hard not to hit him up for a little help. Bob Lanois embarked on creating his first solo album with a musical god on his side. Younger brother Daniel Lanois (U2, Peter Gabriel, Bob Dylan) is spoken of in the hushed tones reserved for a deity. And why not, it was U2’s Bono who referred to him as the best musician he has ever known.

A celebrated engineer and producer himself, Bob stepped away from the knobs and dials of the control room, and, freed from the tangle of cables and microphones, took a chance with his own collection of songs — varied, moody, engaging instrumental pieces — produced by the genius of Daniel.

The resulting album, with its 9 beautifully-crafted, often cinematic melodies, is wonderfully simplistic, haunting and enchanting. It has been met with critical acclaim by the press, has been a favourite of the CBC and has been topping the charts at campus radio as well.
