Amy Millan, 'Masters of the Burial' (Arts & Crafts)

5
Masters of the Burial
Critical Mass
Label: Arts & Crafts

by Spencer Kornhaber

Whether mourning lost loves with Stars or on her own, this Canadian songstress consistently stares in one direction: backward. So, while her 2006 solo debut peppered its country-ish crooning with the swooning rock of her friends in Broken Social Scene, this follow-up burrows back to a pre-indie rock period. But, save for a few inspired touches, like the Burt Bacharach-indebted '60s-pop horns floating through opener "Bruised Ghosts," Masters of the Burial lacks the character to be more than the sum of its lovely parts: fiddles, regret, and a pretty voice.
