HASH(0xa13728dc) out of 5 stars True late-nite driving music 18 Sept. 2001
By William Merrill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you heard the first Lanterna CD, this one's even better. Making use of loads of reverb on lingering electric and slide guitar tones to create a certain atmosphere, the Lanterna sound is ideal accompaniment for a drive down some lonely highway late at night. As with the first album, Elm Street is entirely made up of instrumentals. Most of them could be considered "rock," but it's rock like the slide guitar passages on Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game." The guitar there was by James Calvin Wilsey; here it's Lanterna leader Henry Frayne on the frets. It's a guitar sound that conjures up the soul of the night, not in a spooky way, but in portraying nighttime's quiet and empty spaces. Another comparison would be '60s surf-rock instrumentals, but slowed way down so the notes are allowed to expand. Some of the tracks on Elm Street border on the "ambient" style, especially the spectral 12-minute closing cut, "Dog Days."
HASH(0xa1375bb8) out of 5 stars I discovered Lanterna because I loved Henry Frayne's work with the band 25 July 2015

This is a real gem! I discovered Lanterna because I loved Henry Frayne's work with the band, Moon Seven Times, and wanted to see if he'd done anything else. I'm glad I did because this CD has a wonderful, ethereal quality that is totally unique. I highly recommend this. Literally everyone I've introduced to this music has loved it!

Something else I'd add: a few years back, I emailed Lanterna/Frayne out of the blue to say how much I enjoyed his work, and he wrote back a kind, gracious message. It's not every day that you meet a musician or author willing to do that.

HASH(0xa137a2d0) out of 5 stars Instrumental post-rock with a purpose 27 Nov. 2004
By I am the - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Light guitar melodies repeated over a sparse rhythm section give these songs a light, nimble feel. But the chord changes and effects leaven this mood with a dose of melancholy. The earlier tracks on the album are the best, and track two is worth the price of the CD. Excellent background music for light reading, good conversation, or kicking back with the headphones.

HASH(0xa1378fa8) out of 5 stars Beautifully boring 15 Mar. 2009
By IRate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
3 1/2

Frayne is a pro at walking a fine line between spirited and lifeless gently-reverbed guitar instrumentals, and Elm Street is no exception. There is a bit of variety here, although forays into electronica feel more contrived than Lanterna's patented desert highway strumming. Still ES survives intact on the right side of a quality release.
HASH(0xa137a63c) out of 5 stars Ehhhh..... 7 May 2008
By Joe Mugsy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The first few tunes sound like backing tracks before the "vocals" were recorded. It gets better after that...but doesn't live up to the hype. The track "Dog Days" is very good though, but one track does not an album make.
Still enjoyable........but.....
