There are times in life when it all seems to come together…the moments, good and bad, that leave an indelible impression on your soul forever. These are the times we say, the Planets Aligned.
Planets Aligned explores themes of personal reflection, dissecting relationships, shattered illusions and the resolution of such with the discovery of new lust, love and finally contentment.Planets Aligned is full of silky masterful lead vocals and backing vocals with a rich layering, reminiscent of 70s soul and disco. Anne-Lise has made full use sound textures, with sweeping string synthesizers, a traditional Fender Rhodes, exotic percussion, beat driven melodic bass lines and a mixture of traditional pop funk style drumming and dance drum loops. Planets Aligned is an album for those who crave passion, human emotion, musicianship, melody and power in their music with a big nod to the open genre feel of the 1970s. Album photography is by Yve Lavine and was taken at Sydney Park, St Peters NSW in 2009. Artwork is by Anne-Lise. The CD was pressed at Troy Horse in Alexandria and was distributed worldwide. The CD was released via CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon and is available to stream at most online digital providers including Spotify.
HighlightsBy this stage, Anne-Lise had a compressor mic and a much better monitoring situation with new DAW software in Sony Acid. As a result the vocals were a highlight of the album.
ChallengesWhile Anne-Lise had discovered what mastering was by now, she still did it all herself and the result at times is very treble heavy with overly saturated compressed sound. There is a very annoying glitch at the beginning of Rest Of My Days which Anne-Lise was unable to remove so it made it onto the album. "Rest Of My Days" didn't quite come together as Anne-Lise had hoped. Her earlier instrumental arrangements which she was entirely happy with were somehow lost along the way. This meant a new backing track had to be recorded and the original magic was lost forever. Although it was one of her favourite songs at the time, she feels it was one of her weakest arrangements.
