Northern Lights-Southern Cross

( 2 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rob Bowman
The first studio album of Band originals in four years, in many respects Northern Lights-Southern Cross was viewed as a comeback. It also can be seen as a swan song. The album was the Band's finest since their self-titled sophomore effort. Totaling eight songs in all, on this album the Band explores new timbres, utilizing for the first time 24 tracks and what was then new synthesizer technology. "Acadian Driftwood" stands out as one of Robertson's finest compositions, the equal to anything else the Band ever recorded.

    Another Great Album

    Okay, Well I think this is another great albums of The Band. But the only song that I never hear in the City is "Acadian Driftwood", that sounds like your in the country side or living in the rural area, or in nature. But really that's my fav song ever, I wish I was Robbie Robertson, the writter because that was the most creative songs of the Americana, and folk music, another song that sounds grovy, Ring Your Bell, and the secound part of "Life is A Carnival" that sounds like the New Orleans music "Ophelia". But the Most and Best written song that I pick in this album. "Acadian Driftwoood". IF YOU WANT TO TRY LISTING TO THE BAND, WELL BUY THE GREATEST HITS, AND IF YOU LIKE THE SOUND, THE MUSIC, THE STYLE, THE WAYS, YOU WILL LIKE THE OTHER WORKS. BUT REALLY IF YOU LISTEN TO "ACADIAN DRIFTWOOD" YOU WILL THINK OR SAY, "WHOO! IM, IN THE COUNTRY SIDE, OR I WISH I WAS BACK IN MY UNCLES & AUNTS FARM". BUT REALLY IF YOU HEARD THIS SONG YOU WILL REMEMBER OR THINK SOMETHING. BUT IN THE END OF THE SONG (IF YOU KNOW FRENCH) THERE'S A CREATIVE SONG, A GOOD AND GREAT END OF THE SONG, AND A GOOD SONG. I hope anybody read this message.
