For the Beauty of Wynona

Genre: Folk, Rock; Lead Performer: Daniel Lanois; Producer (group): Warner Bros.

The second record from ace producer-performer Daniel Lanois has the hypnotic power of a slow-burning candle: For the Beauty of Wynona’s lush, soft-focus beauty can be riveting, or it can put you right to sleep. Lanois folds Indian, Middle Eastern, and African flavors into folk and laid-back, bluesy rock, with meticulous layering of guitar, percussion, and sleepy-eyed voice. And as lumbering and logy as some of the melodies are, you can’t help wondering what kind of dreams they’d induce. B
