IT'S GOT GOOD 'JUJU'
Lisa Gerrard has steadfastly created a lifelong career as a big budget Hollywood film composer. The Insider features her and Pieter Bourke working hand in hand to create this somewhat minimalistic and at times operatic (in mood) score. There is a surprising track titled "Meltdown", which has Lisa doing (treated) vocals to a drum-riddled electronica backbeat. Massive Attack, Jan Garbarek, Graeme Revell and the wonderful Gustavo Santaolalla make an appearance as well on several separate songs. Some may be taken aback with some of the music of Gerrard and Bourke that is on this disc as it is not what Lisa is known for doing in the past. But, keep an open mind, for it is still superb music.
