Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

In July of 2003 I reviewed Lazy Lane’s debut CD, “The Chills” I loved that one, and this one is just as good.

Another review described this music as “Ghost-Rock”. That couldn’t be a better description. There is something hauntingly gorgeous about Lazy Lane and the swimmy sensual vocals of lead singer Lily Lane.

The music is in the goth-y dream rock vein and Lane’s sexy kittenish vocals are a prefect match. The melodies are interesting and enveloping and the musicianship is outstanding. The production is also first class. I imagine it’s hard to get all the emotion to come across right on record, but it is right here.

“Goth Girl” has an almost loungy feel. This one really reminds me of Jill Tracy.

“Long Gone” wanders into almost metal territory.

My favorite might be “Still Waters Run Deep” it’s just beautiful.

If you like dreamy rock with sexy vocals you owe it yourself to check out Lazy Lane. Check out their debut, The Chills as well.
