A CHORUS OF STORYTELLERS revisits well-worn ground with Jimmy LaValle (the ambient introduction of "Perro," the beats, languid synths and guitar on "Blank Pages"), but it's still soothing and comfortable nonetheless. The indie-band-with-vocals aspect pokes in its head with "There Is a Wind" and "Almost There" but the whistling "Within Dreams" and the live feel of "Stand Still" sort of blow it away. The mournful "Summer Fog" is filled with an eerie, orchestral stillness, and the orchestra comes into full bloom with "Until the Last." This culminates with the spare "Tied Knots" and its languorous slide guitar. A mixed bag, but one that ends up on the winning side of the equation.
