The Review:

Under the moniker of Lark Echo, multi-instrumentalist P.J. Herkkola's debut self titled release consists of 17 songs that have a slight ambient and brooding gothic vibe, mainly in the vocals. Unfortunately this falls short thus each song has a samey style with absolutely no exploring done whatsoever. To me, the listener, leaves me rather bored and quickly uninterested. This is one of the problems with one-man bands, it's a hit and miss on the sound. I think P.J. should add musicians to the mix and stick to singing and maybe doing one instrument. Againa, there's potential with Lark Echo!
