Album review by Frank De Blase

The Beaumonts - 'lanterna blu'

The Beaumonts kick off "lanterna blu" with a quasi-bossa nova backbeat, reminiscent of Paul Weller's postmodern lounge outfit The Style Council. But it isn't a ploy to simply reel the listener into their comfort zone, because they do it again with the second track...and the third. The Beaumonts' frontman Steve Pizzuto also holds down the bottom end in the Ren and Stimpy-meets-Madness band that is 5Head. But don't expect the silliness and the augmented ska.

"lanterna blu" is the twilight between melancholy and downright maudlin. It is layered, lovely, and lush, with the hint of inclemency looming just overhead. The album was mixed by four-time Neko Case producer Darryl Neudorf, who adheres well to the ethereal undertones and mood BTW, do I hear a 1966 Bassman in there?

Track Name: another lover
she'll always have another lover
living undercover if only for the night
sifting through the wreckage of her disconnected day
it's just an ordinary lie and a matter of time before she'll stray

wanton memories of lives she's left behind
only serve to sever ties that want to bind
now silence is a virtue..............of her disconnected day
it's just an ordinary lie and a matter of time before she'll stray

Track Name: only lonely
oh are you sitting down?
things have changed since you’ve been around
it’s only lonely

why’d you come around here today?
the only song that’s left to play
is only lonely

you used to be right outside my door
now the only thing for sure is….we will fly
but only in a dream

Track Name: watch yourself
watch yourself now
pretty soon it’ll all be over
watch yourself now
in a way it’s just begun

and if you ever find yourself out of the game
and realize you only have yourself to blame
i just might be right there to help you ease your pain
until you start over again

amy amy, why don’t you lie your head down tonight?
oh…amy amy, your self destruction gives us such a fright

Track Name: back to the dirge
once in a while
we’d sit in trees and capture these moments
that dare not defile
the twisted contrast of our torments

what will become of me?
what in the world will become of me?

and how does it always come to this
even tipped in my favor
for a fleeting 10 year glimpse
that somehow time forgets till it’s over

time will tame us all

Track Name: eye to eye
people come and go on many paths we’ll never know
guess that’s sometimes why we don’t see eye to eye

cross the road and up the street is a place where hearts could meet
if you keep an open mind you just might see eye to eye

tides flow minds blow hearts swell when you find yourself (eye to eye)

people come and go on many paths we’ll never know
some are high and some are low

cross the road and up the street is a place where hearts could meet
if you keep an open mind you just might see

tides flow minds blow
sparks wake the sleep state
hearts align in perfect time
when you come to then you’ll find your (self)

Track Name: lanterna blu
An angry dawn has dragged me down on foreign ground
My discontent won’t wane
From dizzy thoughts I cannot see past battles fought in misery
I hear ‘Lanterna Blu’

My twisted search leads me far away from all that’s safe
This stranger’s come to call
Down dead end streets in dead of night my darkest hopes have taken flight
I see ‘Lanterna Blu’


Clinging stares past curtains red and shoulders bare
Sit hungry empty eyes
In velvet rooms through crimson lies they sell their souls in stockinged thighs
I’ve been tricked again

will you love me (Mi amer?)
love me forever (Mi ama per sempre)
love me now and never leave (Mi ama adesso e non lasciare mai)

Tripping down the alleyways off empty streets and in a daze
I’m drowning on dry land
This pack of thieves of empty souls entertain no answer told
A shakedown sure at hand

A stranger’s smile is on my lips but all the while
The silence steels my heart
Deceiving words by azure light I leave the pack without a fight
And dread ‘Lanterna Blu’

Track Name: safe and sound
darkness falls on Dawn
it’s a run on humanity
the lottery ticket’s been traced back to those with caretakers stripped of all sanity

even with high flying caps in the air the fate’s unavoidable
innocence shattered is met with a stare and cries become deafened by vanity

and every time you speak his mind he just
picks you up
puts you down
rests his weight on a broken wing
there will be no more safe and sound than a lost shoe in a hurricane

tip toe slow is no way to grow up
when your light shines so bright
from the inside out let it cut at the night of him
feeding you blame and insidious shame
and it’s all the same everywhere
just hang on till the morning light sees you through
when you wake then he can’t
pick you up
put you down
rest his weight on a broken wing
there will be only safe and sound

Track Name: sundown
all this energy – all this energy
is slipping away

there’s something on my mind
that’s stealing time away from me

sometimes i feel i can’t go on
when the sun is going down
all i love and all i’ve known
is drifting slowly….away

sitting on the edge of the night
looking back it doesn’t seem right
there’s so much more

it’s written at the end of a line
been slipping in and out of time
and thinking only

now i feel i can’t go on
cause the sun is going down
all i love and all i’ve known
is drifting slowly….away

Track Name: wannabe heart
she had a wannabe heart
off beat and out of time
a wannabe heart
playin’ hide and seek all the while

if you wanna play love then play love
if you wanna say love then say love
with your wannabe heart

wine kissed
he’s talkin’ through the vine
slow bliss
he’s taken by her smile

if you wanna play love we’ll play love
if you wanna say love we’ll say love
with our wannabe hearts

in time she’d fly
with wide open wings
and learn to soar above
the endless sea of broken beings

Track Name: cut
she sits alone and tries to find another way
to let out all the things she knows she needs to say
and as she starts to feel the ticking of the clock
this time she knows the hands of time she cannot stop

to find her way

it’s everything she wants
it’s everything she needs
everything inside of her that feels so real

it’s everything she sees
it’s everything she’s got
deep down inside she’s pushed away and cut that’s bleeding now….

by lighted lamp in darkened hour she starts to pray
to let out all the things she thought she’d never say
and as the dark and timeless hour passes by
she feels her dark and twisted self begin to die

she’s found her way

it’s everything she wants
it’s everything she needs
everything inside of her that feels so real

it’s everything she sees
it’s everything she’s got
deep down inside she’s pushed away and cut that’s bleeding now….

Track Name: this time
i see you clearly now
you’ve clearly up and gone
all that time together
can you tell me what went wrong?

the tired look on your face
kinda says it all
every time we’d try to run
we’d only trip and fall

we’ve both been here before
a thousand times or more
you’re starin’ straight at that door
i’d better believe it this time

the hope that we’d had
to try and get it right
left long before you did
why couldn’t i see the light?

she said…i’m gonna walk right out that door
you’d better believe it
i can’t take this anymore
you’d better believe it this time

Track Name: ali try your luck
your powdered sugar kisses are sweet tonight
but in the morning when you run away
i check the lot for love but all i found
are two torn up tickets and a yesterday

ali try your luck today

down around corner across the way
i know i'll find you nearly every day
playing ring toss with a heavy heart
and fingers crossed that you'll win big today

ali try your luck today
