Editorial Reviews

Already a major performer in his native France and throughout Europe, classical trained composer Yann Tiersen is best known in the US for his arthouse hit film soundtracks Amelie and Goodbye Lenin. "Dust Lane", Tiersen's official Anti and US debut, is a cinematic orchestral pop record that recalls the swagger of classic Serge Gainsbourg, the bravura of early Eno and the faded music-hall grandeur of Brits like Pulp and Divine Comedy as it veers from sunny folk-inspired songs to full choir workouts.

Yann Tiersen's score for Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 2000 French comedy, Amelie, remains, many insist, the great film score of its time. Rather than relying on classical composition (as do most big budget Hollywood films) or the quirky minimalism of most American indies, Tiersen's name-making score established the composer's name by utilizing, for example, accordions and harpsichords in the place of cellos and violins. Big, fancy, details productions that sounded like nothing before, yet were organic and dramatic. Following the Amelie score, which was never properly released in the U.S., Tiersen continued making solo records across the pond, eventually composing another well-thought-of score for a movie called Goodbye, Lenin - also great. Now, all these years later and after a huge amount of success in France, Tiersen has released his first proper stateside record, Dust Lane, for U.S. indie Anti- Records.

Though Americans know Tiersen mostly as a whimsical-yet-technical composer, he has, in his native land, released music that can be grouped in with a number of different genres, including post-rock and even progressive rock. For Dirt Lane Tiersen has taken the guitar-driven style he's flirted with along the way, creating an eight-song epic that should alert a new fan base, likely comprised mostly of 20- and 30-something males who dabble in early 70s electric jazz, loved Radiohead deeply for a period and now talk mostly about Canadian collectives, "movements," Sigur Ros, Mogwai and, probably, French films.

The strings and accordions, xylophones, harpsichords and melodicas pop up here and there, but the focus is on the electric guitar, which Tiersen is masterful - if not showy - with when it comes to composing.

This album, and Yann Tiersen's next release, "Skyline," gave me a thrill similar to hearing a brand new Pink Floyd record for the first time, back in the 70's. Fantastic layers of music and sound textures with a nice balance of Rock.Skyline

I was amazed at this album. Yann Tiersen is a musical genius. The only thing better than this album is to go see him live! He has great musicians backing him who are as multi-talented as he is. Get this album!!!!!!!!

This is not your typical Yann Tierson album. It's a thoughtful and, in many ways painful, piece by an amazing composer. This was composed after Yann lost his mother and the struggles that he went through are evident. Gone is the carefree Amelie, instead we have the bitter realizations of life, death, and dust.

One other recommendation: Yann has been on tour with this album. I'd strongly recommend seeing it live. The performance was easily one of the top three concerts I've seen, full of the desperate energy that runs throughout this album.

As long as Yann continues to create beautiful music, I will be happy to listen to him explore his world. Yann composed 'Dust Lane' after the passing of his mother and a close friend and it is reflected in this release. I personally feel dark music is the most beautiful because it comes from a real place in the spirit. I think Yann honorably displayed his vulnerability as his music oscillated through the many emotions of grief and growth. I will enjoy this cd over and over again. If you like Godspeed You! Black Emperor, A Silver Mt. Zion, Sigur Ros, Mum, old Porcupine Tree, and Explosions In The Sky, I can safely say this will be a good addition to your collection.

Although Amelie was the first album I'd heard by Tiersen, I've purchased nearly all of his releases (pre and post) since then. That aside, I've really enjoyed this album and have found myself listening to its tracks closer than normal - there's a lot of thought/emotion/intent here. As noted in other reviews, this is a departure from Tiersen's more popular whimsy/perky works, but even though Dust Lane's more emotionally somber and bittersweet, the qualities that make him shine are as strong as ever. I also like his nods to 60s/70s rock in a few of the tracks. Bravo.

I have very eclectic music styles and frankly had only vaguely heard of Yann Tiersen as the guy who did the Amelie soundtrack. I got this album in anticipation of a gig he was playing locally. This album has so much skill and yet so much emotion in whilst still being uplifting without losing it's cool. From start to finish it is stunning. I;ve been listening to this album for a year now and it is the most played album my fiance and I play. We both love it. I keep an online list of my 50 greatest albums and this is currently number 4 but will probably get higher.
