5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and wonderful
Caroline Lavelle at her best, her cello sending music shivering down the spine, her words full of feelings and sensations. Very interesting the choice of war poets for the lyrics of two of the songs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sublime voice: relax and drift away ...
Following her very good 'Spirit' album (1995) - but why so few recordings by this excellent artiste? - Caroline Lavelle doesn't disappoint with Brilliant Midnight: even better, in my view. Her captivating voice has a superb range and the mixing of the backing instrumentals is finely judged to complement and not to intrude. Together, they have a sublime, dreamy quality...

3.0 out of 5 stars Sublime voice: relax and drift away ..., 3 Mar 2003
This review is from: Brilliant Midnight (Audio CD)
Following her very good 'Spirit' album (1995) - but why so few recordings by this excellent artiste? - Caroline Lavelle doesn't disappoint with Brilliant Midnight: even better, in my view. Her captivating voice has a superb range and the mixing of the backing instrumentals is finely judged to complement and not to intrude. Together, they have a sublime, dreamy quality. The intricate vocals (mostly written by her) are often thought-provoking but it is also easy just to turn off, unwind and let her haunting voice just wash over you. Not only is she a great singer, but a talented instrumentalist too, and her cello, bass, keyboards or guitar accompany the songs.
Everyone will have their own favourite track. Mine is 'All I Have', which appears twice with a longer remix at the end. For once, the remix is not an excuse to get out some self-indulgent producer's ragbag of odds and ends, but in this case is even better than the original.
Buy this, set your CD player on 'repeat', relax and drift away ...

5.0 out of 5 stars The organic soul of the world, 6 Nov 2004
By 
This review is from: Brilliant Midnight (Audio CD)
Caroline Lavelle blends wonderfully her past experiences with electronics (William Orbit, Hector Zazou) and her ability as a celloist and composer in this album, balancing between pop influences and a deep passionate sound of strings and vocals. The final result is a deeply organic album, which departs from her previous solo experience and ventures into an almost classical environment. From the musical transposition of poems from World War I, to the anxiety caused by insomnia to a relationship narrated with metaphores from the natural world, Brillian Midnight revals itself as an intimate travel through the human soul.
