Lunatic Soul – Walking on a Flashlight Beam

While the album is perhaps a little uneven, lacking here, overburdened there, it is a satisfying one. It is certainly the best Lunatic Soul offering to date, and, to my ears at least, the best Duda has produced in any setting.

"Mariusz Duda, of Polish band Riverside, releases his fourth solo outing under the moniker, Lunatic Soul."

A standard beginning. Perhaps, too standard. Let's try a different approach:


"Mariusz Duda (Riverside), with Wawrzyniec Dramowicz (UnSun, Indukti, Destruction), ventures into a hermetic world of isolated creativity and absorption of the creativity of others, escapism as imprisonment, fantasy as antidote to the potential poisons of reality, all the while aware that it could become a poison in itself."


Hmmm … not quite right, either …


Let's quote Duda himself while I gather some thoughts …


"Walking On A Flashlight Beam" - the title indicates living in a world of imagination, in a place that's made up and unreal. You can have your head in the clouds, you can chase after rainbows so you can walk on a flashlight beam too. It's a story ...


* The DPM Rating System
When we rate an album or concert etc we rate it on the "Huzzah!" system. A score can be between 1 and 3 huzzahs:
1 Huzzah! - The reviewer likes it. You should give it a listen!
2 Huzzah! - The reviewer recommends it - and is delighted it is part of his/her collection
3 Huzzah! - The reviewer strongly recommends it - and it has already entered heavy rotation on his/her personal playlists.

On rare occasions there may be a 0 Huzzah! review. The reasons will be explained in the article. On equally rare occasions you may even see a 4 Huzzah ... well explain that another time :)

We dont do negative reviews because we review what we like.
