Editorial Review:

Product Description:
After ten years as the lead singer and songwriter for iconic Canadian rock band Our Lady Peace this is Raine Maida's first solo album.
Our Lady Peace frontman Raine Maida has long been considered intense--not just musically but also in his day-to-day political activism--so it should come as no surprise that his debut solo CD, The Hunters Lullaby, is neither light nor fluffy. Including similar but slightly different versions of the four tracks that comprise his 2006 EP, Love Hope Hero, this ten-song CD, according to Maida, didn’t start out as musical numbers, but instead as poems. In fact, poetry runs throughout this disc, whereby Maida repeatedly breaks out of singing and veers into rhymes a la Patti Smith, Saul Williams, and Leonard Cohen. The disc's catchiest tune--lead-off single "Yellow Brick Road" (no relation to Sir Elton's similarly named track)--is quite unlike OLP, with a Middle Eastern-sounding fiddle weaving around Maida's Beat-meets-Slam-poetry, as he recollects his early punk-rock roots. Much of the CD is jam-packed with deep convictions, ranging from topics including politics and activists ("One Second Chance"), to moving his family from Canada to L.A. ("Careful What You Wish For"), to a song inspired by Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth ("China Doll.") That said, every instrument used on the disc is acoustic, not electric (including wife Chantal Kreviazuk on piano and vocals), resulting in a lyrically noisy but sonically subdued disc. --Denise Sheppard
