9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Stuart Robert Harris VINE VOICE on 21 Feb 2001
Format: Audio CD
Confession time. I can't get enough of that Daniel Lanois sound. Like other great studio wizards, his touch is unmistakable. On other people's albums such as U2 and Emmylou Harris, some listeners might find the trademark Lanois sound palette a tad too intrusive. Personally I love it.
On Acadie, it's entirely his own show. The songs are simple and rarely less than lovely. There's the big sweeping soundscape of "Still Water" and "The Maker" and the sparse intimacy of "Silium's Hill". The final flourish says it all - "Amazing Grace" as you've never heard it before, with Aaron Neville warbling like an angel seguing into a trademark Lanois reverb coda of heroic proportions.
This album will happily create an ambience in the background, but also richly reward the most attentive listening. I hesitated between a four and a five - don't want to devalue my currency! - but the heart says definitely a five.

Format: Audio CD
This beautifully textured masterpiece sparkles with classic songs like Still Water, The Maker, O Marie, Under A Stormy Sky and Where The Hawkwind Kills. The gripping melodies have a folky feel but the playing and production give it an ethereal, atmospheric dimension that puts it in a league of its own. O Marie is sung entirely in French, while Jolie Louise and Under A Stormy Sky have alternating French and English verses. The album concludes with a tender, subdued version of Amazing Grace. There is a certain spiritual quality to the music that is hard to define, but also found in the work of fellow Canadian Jane Siberry, or on John Cale and Brian Eno’s Wrong Way Up or in Peter Gabriel’s songs Blood Of Eden and Come Talk To Me. Acadie is a very uplifting listening experience. Exquisite music.

This beautifully textured masterpiece sparkles with atmospheric songs of great profundity including ballads like Still Water, The Maker & Where The Hawkwind Kills and uptempo tracks like O Marie and Jolie Louise. Brian Eno must also be credited for making the music so special.

The exquisite melodies have a folkie feel but the playing and production give the music an ethereal, brooding dimension that puts it in a league of its own. O Marie is sung entirely in French, while Jolie Louise and Under A Stormy Sky have alternating French and English verses.

The album concludes with a subdued rendition of Amazing Grace. There is a certain spiritual quality to the music that is hard to define, but also found in the work of fellow Canadian Jane Siberry, in Peter Gabriel's songs Blood Of Eden & Come Talk To Me and of course in the work of Emmylou Harris.

Lanois produced and played on Emmylou's exceptional album Wrecking Ball; on her live album Spyboy there is an impressive 8 minute + version of his composition The Maker. Acadie is a very uplifting listening experience and slightly better than his other great album For the Beauty of Wynona.

Listeners may wonder how Lanois' own work compares with the work of all the artists he's produced (U2, Peter Gabriel etc.) The pleasant surprise is that his own album is every bit as well produced, as sonically evocative and at least as atmospheric as any of the above artists recordings. Its a great late-night record and one which is a real grower. Also, it's strange that it never received the recognition it clearly deserves. Highly recommended!

Format: Audio CD
i feel a bit sorry for mr lanois that he brought this masterpiece out as his 1st album. surely he will never better this absolute genius of an album. after 16 years every song is still superb and shows no signs of aging or familiarity. all of his albums are great but this is so good it transcends not only his but every other album ive heard in nearly 40 years of listening to music. No fillers at all but listen to siliums hill and st anns gold. they will send a shiver down your spine.

turn it up and wallow in perfection!!!!
