Best known for his work with artists like U2, Neil Young and Peter Gabriel, Canadian producer Lanois is also a highly accomplished solo artist in his own right.

Flesh and the Machine, his seventh or eighth album depending on how you count them, is classic Lanois, bearing all the hallmarks of the spacey, ambient, somewhat electronic soundscape that once led Rolling Stone to declare him the “most important record producer to emerge in the Eighties”. This is a somewhat nebulous album but one that rewards with repeated listens, with new sonic textures revealing themselves in time. (PH)
