  “This is a very good album offering much in the way of stirring, memorable music and Lanois remains true to his vision. ”
Pieter  |
  “I like it even better than I like Acadie. ”
Bryan D. Uslick  | 
  “This will be in my ready to listen selection for as long as I have ears.”
Jeff H.  | 
  This is one of the all time great rock albums. Lanois has created his own niche that will inevitably not be filled by others. It is too personal and distinctive the combination of its strong imagery and totally controlled (but sometimes wild) sound. The imagery in Rocky World can proudly stand next to that of any song. "Jenny has religion, she sinks in her chair / She's made a decision to color her hair / the black man cut the sugar cane / she watches the rain / in a building away from the rocky world." Unbelievable. Lanois' other album, Acadie, is the natural precursor to this one.

 Good Vibrations
"This place has a good vibe to it," surmised Daniel Lanois inside the Big Orange on Tuesday afternoon. "As soon as I stepped into it, I wanted to start picking up instruments and pushing buttons." Coming from one of the most revered songwriters and producers in the world, only days removed from working with Brian Eno on U2's new album, the words felt like a propitious blessing for Daytrotter.com. For the second consecutive year, the Rock Island, Ill.-based website is holing up in Sound Team's former studio on the Eastside, recording four-song sets by more than 20 artists, all of which will become available as exclusive, free downloads in the coming months. Local favorites the Octopus Project and Brazos, along with Luke Temple and Yo La Tengo, have already laid down tracks this week, while artists ranging from the Retribution Gospel Choir and Sons & Daughters to Kaki King and Jacob Golden are scheduled for the coming days. "Last year we worked ourselves to the point of exhaustion," said Sean Moeller, who co-founded the site in March 2006 with engineer Patrick Stolley. "This time, we're scaling things back a bit, doing a few more solo recordings." In the past 12 months, Daytrotter's hits have nearly doubled, registering an average of 40,000 unique visitors a month, and the site recently partnered with Wolfgang's Vault. Right now the change means only one thing to Moeller: "We're not sleeping on the floors this year." See austinchronicle.com/earache for Doug Freeman's interview with Lanois.The Austin Chronicle
