Shawn Lane Remembered Vol II

Year: 2004
Format: CD
Label: Lion Music
Genre: [Guitar-oriented Instrumental]
Overall Rating: 7.5
Music: 7.5
Production: 7.0


Shawn Lane (1963-2003) has inspired thousands of musicians all over the world (so it isn't surprising that a Shawn Lane Tribute is published)... Unfortunately, he wasn't so well-known among others than musicians. This is the second part of the Shawn Lane tribute of Lion Music. According to Lion Music: "Upon request by several musicians associated with our label we decided to put together a tribute to Shawn. Since so many musicians wanted to pay homage to Shawn we decided to release this tribute as two separate CDs, vol I and vol II."

The music varies from soothing, beautiful ballads to shred metal... This CD is full of great background music, but some of the songs are less successful. Without those songs, this CD would be great to put in the background while doing something else than just listening... now there are occasionally some songs that ruin the mood.

Production on this record varies obviously due to different artists... Every artist has recorded their music in different place so the production quality can't be consistent... Some of the songs had worse production than others thus degrading the overall production rating. For example, most of the songs had slight distortion, but fortunately nothing too severe (although the loud mastering that causes distortion is quite annoying, especially on Carlsson's, Moreno's and Sbar's recordings).

Despite of its frailties, this album isn't too bad... Some of the songs are trifling, but on the other hand there are also some good songs. However, listening before buying is recommended...
