4 stars An unknown little gem of Krautrock ! Feeling is the only album by LIGHTSHINE and features five epic floating pieces of music, mostly dominated by electric guitar.

The disc opens with Sword of the Sky, a very trippy beatiful song which makes immediately the listener fly in space. The sound of the guitar ressembles to the LED ZEPPELIN's No Quarter. Then the song becomes more energic to let appear a surprising but very good flute solo in the vein of Jethro Tull. Lory is a reprise of Grieg's "In the Hall of the Mountain King" with spacey guitar and rock vocals ! After comes Nightmare, a feeric symphonic prog song features pure german Krautrock sounds, with many changements and sometimes reminiscent of ELOY. King and Queen is the second long piece of the album. This tune is sad, enchanting, and transports you to the middle-age. The disc ends with Feeling, a very relaxing song with smooth vocals. The finish is psychedelic

Feeling by Lightshine is definitely an album to discover. The band manages to bring something new to the Krautrock movement by adding a symphonic medieval touch to space rock ! All guitar solos are great.

Highly recommended to fans of Krautrock, Space/Psychedelic Rock and Symphonic Progressive, especially PINK FLOYD, ELOY, LED ZEPPELIN, AMON DÜÜL II and GENESIS lovers !

Modrigue | 4/5 |
