The Review:

Lunatic Soul, the side project of Mariusz Duda (Riverside) released a self-titled debut in 2008 on K-Scope records. Musically it focuses more on the acoustic side of progressive rock that he has explored on all of the Riverside albums. The overall result is a very haunting, surreal and dreamy soundscape with vocals to match them. Lyrically it seems to have a theme of death, loss, and lunacy (hence being called Lunatic Soul). It’s much on par with Richard Barbieri’s Stranger Inside as well as the slower Anekdoten and Porcupine Tree tracks.

So if you’re in the mood for dark, atmospheric progressive music then look no further than Lunatic Soul. It takes you to those places in your mind you probably shouldn’t venture… alone. This is excellent when heard with headphones. One of my favorite releases of 2008. Recommended to fans of the bands mentioned above.
