As much of a huge Lanterna fan as I am, I'm a little sad to hear some signs of stagnation on Highways. A song such as "Canyons," a gentle acoustic-electric number that never really goes anywhere, makes me wonder if Henry has taken this particular "instrumental themes" thing about as far as it'll go. I hope not, because I'm still prepared to travel along with him for awhile longer.
We've got access finally to a lot of independent, new music. This is a time to explore and if you're up for it, anything by Lanterna (Henry Frayne is the key individual) is worth the time and the money. Highways is the latest incarnation of this talented musician's sonic mind. I listen to Highways in the early morning and sometimes driving by myself at night. This is definitely music to listen to by yourself. It is music for the soul--jangly guitar, acoustic rhythms, textured drums, poetic vibrations, and ambient sounds...even an intentional few minutes of silence in there on the title track for those of us who pay attention--and a payoff afterwards...kind of an untitled new composition.
Word is that Lanterna's coming out with a new album sometime in the summer so pay attention. Highways is a great jumping point for the uninitiated though. Elm Street is still my favorite, but I'm really looking forward to the next edition. Stay tuned.
I've been taken to another place thanks to Henry Frayne and not a moment to soon. I've sooo soo needed something to snap me back
into a frame of mind to keep going and that I can do anything attitude. Yea this is just what I needed, this music is really uplifting and
and what also interesting is I'm a up and coming guitar star in my own mind and I'm learning along the way and this was just the
direction I was looking for. I remember reading someone mention in a review this would be great on a drive....you bet.
I heard the first song of this cd "Clear Blue" on sat.tv New Age channel and like most songs that catch my ear I wrote the info. Strangely enough
I've never heard of "Lanterna" in all my years of listening to the New Age channel. See...why I like this cd is the way the riffs are unique
on there own but how they're layered into these hypnotic arrangements.
I also bought "Desert Ocean" too.. I hope by buying the mp3 that Henry benefits from my purchase (I don't know how that business works)like I
said I normally buy cds.
OK....I'll shut up now but was so captivated from literally the 1st song that I had to share with someone...lol.
GO!!! BUY THIS CD!!! and check out "Desert Ocean" too. Not to say that the whole collection isn't worth buying but after reviewing the songs these
2 stood out for me.
I thank God I found you Henry Frayne, you've change my perspective on how I see things. Very inspirational....Thank You! Oh by the way... don't listen to anyone giving "Lanterna" a negative review, they're IDIOTS !!

This is everything I would want from Lanterna: easy on my nerves but interesting, creative, and melodic in a low-key way.Published 20 months ago by William A. Frey
What sounds at first like it could be Lanterna's most effective work quickly subsides into all too familiar half-invested productions. Read morePublished on April 13, 2009 by IRate
Really amazing and soothing music, up until the last track. Can anyone explain the 4.5 minute gap after the first 4 minutes of Highways? Read morePublished on August 1, 2007 by Duga Saj
