Lunatic Soul: Impressions

Ambient/Progressive Rock
3.5/5.0

Mariusz Duda, the lead vocalist and bassist for Poland's progressive rock band Riverside, returns to his Lunatic Soul project once more with Impressions. This album consists of instrumental recordings made during the first two installments of Lunatic Soul.

Ambient, progressive, and minimalist are the operative words here. The music is quiet, spooky, and often elusive. Impressions could be a soundtrack to a dream or an opiate journey. There's no electric guitar, but lots of acoustic guitar over a simple construct. Sometimes it gets upbeat and spicy as on the third track, Impressions III (clever title), nice bass. Mostly, Impressions is medicating like a significant dose of Zoloft or three to four Grey Goose vodkas, taken straight, of course.

Listening to Impressions, it's difficult to argue with Mariusz Duda's direction: melancholy and sublime could also be elements of any, or the next, Riverside project. Find yourself a nice Pino Grigio or Malbec, depending on your taste, then settle in. Dim the lights and escape. Lunatic Souls' Impressions is perfect for this atmosphere.
