esko997 Wow. Where to start with this album. As others have said, it's hard to avoid comparisons to Pink Floyd, as many try and few come as close to prog perfection as Lucy in Blue on this album. An absolute must buy for any fan of the genre or Pink Floyd. Favorite track: Dazed Petition.

abnormal_listening_habits Closest Ive heard a band come to sounding like the "Meddle" era of Pink Floyd, truly an amazing album.The keyboards/Hammond B player is a skilled assassin, beware.
Looking forward to the next release thats coming soon...

Lute FP Fantastic psychedelic rock from Iceland. There are a lot of references to Pink Floyd in the reviews, and I suppose I get that, but this is something its own. Veering into hard jazz and unabashed prog rock often enough, there is yet a modern sensibility which grounds the music, avoiding noodly or dated territory more than it does not. Seriously good stuff.

PS The hammond organ is off the hook.

BTW, f you really want classic Floyd homage, go to Mondo Drag.

Senses 10:29
Leave your desperate thoughts behind, cause they will keep you doubting all there is. Let your mind loose, float along the endless road that leads you out of this. Talk about your mindless thoughts yet knowing little of just what they mean. Dreams forgotten long ago, appear again, become what you´ve been saying. Thought you knew yourself but now you’re starting all over again. There comes a time you realize, the things you´ve planned might never go your way. But remember, child, that nonetheless you’ll have your place in life each and every day. The meaning of it all is really how you give and take.

Twisting and turning, going through all you can Feeling low , reality‘s escapee, can‘t you see, that As long as you stare into the void the void stares back at you The lane is too long to bother if it‘s in you Back again, everything should be alright Broken down, pieces never to be found Seeing that nothing is going to save me now I could go on, there´s no way further down Laughing at nothing surrounded by its arms Lying sedated, in pieces breaking through Can‘t you see I‘m not with you Oh yeah, I‘m breaking through Not shining like you want me to And I don’t know what to do Leaving me now when it‘s already cold It‘s just another thing to tear me down Bringing myself to painfully unfold When you bother enough to watch me as I drown Can‘t you see I‘m not with you Oh yeah, I‘m breaking through Not shining like you want me to And I don’t know what to do Back again, everything should be alright Broken down, pieces never to be found Everything could not be less alright Round and round, the circle isn‘t near complete

Í langlífu ljósi við stöndum, lifandi, ómstríð. Það flöktir og fjarar fljótandi og hverfur fljótt þegar kyrrðin rýfur kaldan strauminn og kemur saman við yfirborðið og einsemdina. Tell me, how it‘s alright for you to be alone, a broken youth that can‘t keep up with her and surface from below, is it too much to show? Tell me, how you can look into the glare for so long, and see that all the light is passing by and dimming in the haze, is it too much to face? Hold on, it is never going back to that, ‘cause I‘m never coming home to you to tell you it‘s alright If you have to go away, do it quick If you have to act it out, do it well If you have to let it slide, do it fast If you have to make it last, do it right It‘s alright to be alone, on your own

Tensions arise, golden the dawn, national cries, settled with brawn Carnage for gain without restraint, none the disdain for hostility´s reign Ministered hate, communal decay, leading a state where rights are astray Leaders confound with words of dismay a conflicting sound to turn crowds into prey Nothing‘s wrong, play along with the common song Hysterical cause of crooked intent met with applause and moral descent Leaders confound with words of dismay a conflicting sound to turn crowds into prey Nothing‘s wrong, play along with the common song

Absent 04:35
As long as it rains My mind will stay clear The storm in my head won't stay near. And clouds hide the sun, It's rays disappear, and along with them so do my fears. These fields filled with joy, seem all too surreal, are soaked, soon the sky starts to clear. My thoughts are all there, and ever so clear; (They're) no longer obscured, still I fear: That I don't know why, No I don't know why, My soul's disappeared.

You work so hard to make it sound, you don’t think twice about the crowd. You know that you are always right, without a doubt or second sight. Ideas coming much to slow, you cannot help it, feeling low. They say that you are overblown, far out of every comfort zone.

about

Lucy In Blue Reykjavik, Iceland

Psychedelia revisited melodically and methodically. The young quartet from Iceland delivers atmospheric grooves laden with soft harmonies and soaring guitar leads, in a trudge across the tundra or foolishly sitting still on a hill.
