“December 2016 – Issue 121 – Progressive Rock CD Reviews

I’m willing to bet that you’ve not heard anything quite like this. It’s a cool disc that lands generally in the realm of progressive rock. That said, there is so much world music here. The majority of the vocals are not in English or delivered in a Western style. The mix of sound runs the gamut from electronic to jazz and much more. All in all, this is quite a ride that really does feel exotic and perhaps even alien.

Positive vibes are hard to hide. So is the mostly instrumental album, la YnE, or La Grande Illusion. Laine, who is based in Finland, serves up a dose of what he calls “urban world music” and then some. Global electronic sounds abound along with a slew of instruments and other musicians on Laine’s debut. Prog-rockers especially will enjoy the effort. Give it a try.

 


“Let’s start this review with a quote from the artist himself: Music is a journey, not a destination. This album is, indeed, a journey itself! La Grande Illusion is Matti ‘la Yne’ Laine’s debut album. All songs are written by Matti himself, and there are several guest musicians contributing on the album. The music is mostly instrumental. This album is dedicated to Mick Karn, one of my favourite bassist who passed away too soon.”

“Dal 2012 dietro il moniker la YnE si cela il progetto solista del musicista e compositore finlandese Matti Laine. Continuamente alla ricerca di nuove e diverse fonti di ispirazione, Laine giunge nel 2014 alla pubblicazione del suo primo album, La grande illusion, grazie all’interessamento della Musea Parallele. La proposta musicale di Laine fonde elementi di world music, jazz, pop con tracce di progressive rock; un originale mix che non fa distinzioni di età, razza, colore, credo religioso e sesso, prerogativa di una musica che nasce dal cuore e dall’anima.”

…I’ll admit I have a soft spot for artists that do something new or unexpected, and that is exactly what Matti Laine, with his project La Yne, has done with this album.

El finlandés Matti Laine se considera un músico de folk del hoy, de la actualidad, de las nuevas propuestas y la apertura de mente. Una visión sin cerrojos que le lleva a experimentar con calma pero a buen ritmo con la inspiración que se oculta tras ritos y ceremonias del pasado, tras modos de expresión artísticos que, aunque en el ayer, tienen un vigente sentido si se saben combinar.

boa música, boas pessoas e boas vibrações: uma inteira nova aventura!

Skivan är en särskilt lyckad kombination av syntetiskt och organiskt. Dessutom utstrålar låtarna en värme vilket ofta saknas inom maskindriven musik. Enligt min uppfattning har det inte heller tidigare producerats något i stil med den här plattan i Finland. Strongt!

Matti Laine admet s’être inspiré de grandes œuvres musicales avant-gardistes des années 70 et 80, comme “My life in the bush of ghosts” (Brian Eno et David Byrne), “Tin drum” (Japan) ou “Security” (Peter Gabriel). Mais son travail révèle aussi beaucoup d’originalité à travers ce disque essentiellement tourné vers la création d’ambiances et parcouru de montages sonores. Un album intéressant pour qui veut faire voyager son esprit à travers les nuages du son et les vibrations de la musique.

It may be cold outside, but we have a lot of people with a warm heart. Thanks Jazzrytmit for such a flattering review!


Vaikka tätä levyä ei mitenkään voi suoranaisena jazzlevynä pitää, niin levyn musiikki on herättävää. Se sisältää ”uuden aallon” erikoista ilmettä. Siitä löytyy kansainvälisen tason maailmanmusiikin elementtejä, missä etniset musiikkiainekset sekoittuvat tavallisten soittimien tuottamana totuttuun soundiin ja nykyaikaiseen elektroniseen äänimaailmaan. Tuloksena on sekoitus erilaista maailmankulttuuria, hypnoottista magiaa, omanlaista vahvaa alkuperäisyyttä. Se on kuin tutkimusmatka maailmankaikkeuteen.
