Actually, it sounds like that album's low-key atmospherics married to the superstar cameos of Lanois' debut, ACADIE. Emmylou Harris contributes vocals to the almost-spiritual opener, "I Love You," while Bono co-writes and sings the admittedly U2-like "Falling At Your Feet." The star-cameo trend takes a strange turn on "As Tears Go By" (not the Stones song), which is built, Moby-like, around a sampled steel guitar line by the late blues pioneer Charley Patton.After that opening trio of guest star showcases, SHINE calms down a bit and slips into a typically loose, vaguely mysterious groove powered by Lanois and his longtime collaborator Malcolm Burn's twangy guitars and ghostly keyboards. Nearly a third of the 13 songs are instrumentals, with the spooky "Transmitter" and the simply gorgeous, pedal-steel-driven closer "JJ Leaves LA" among the album's highlights. Of the vocal songs, the peak is the hymn-like "Slow Giving," on which the album's spiritual preoccupations coalesce into something genuinely grand and powerful.
