From The Los Angeles Times :

*** 1/2 VARIOUS ARTISTS, "The Million Dollar Hotel : SoundtrackAlbum," Interscope


This is a pretty grand hotel, at least sonically, with Bono (on whose story theWim Wenders film is based) in his most intimate Celtic Marvin Gaye mode,trumpeter Jon Hassell blowing like the ghost of Chet Baker and Brian Eno, DanielLanois, guitarist Bill Frisell and programmer Adam Dorn shaping the atmospheresof the Million Dollar Hotel Band—sort of an extended U2 family with a decidedlysensual bent.

Add to the family author Salman Rushdie, whose words are sung by Bono inthe rapturous opening "The Ground Beneath Her Feet" (credited to U2 withLanois) and "Hotel" co-star Milla Jovovich, who goes from whispering siren toscreeching banshee on a version of Lou Reed’s "Satellite of Love," and actor-singerTito Larriva, who with the MDH band provides the one full-out rocker with aSpanish-language relocation of "Anarchy in the U.S.A." U2 also contributes"Stateless" and "The First Time," echoing its reaching, romantic title song fromWenders’ early ’90s "Until the End of the World" and boding very well for thegroup’s album-in-progress.

Rounding out the album (due Tuesday) are several vaporous instrumentalpieces by the MDH band evoking an air of gauzy melancholy, yet also anenveloping warmth. Sounds like a strangely inviting place to stay.
