5 stars Although musically I did not grow up in the golden Pink Floyd era, I really like each of their albums, except their latest release "The Endless River", which is a dignified tribute to Rick Wright indeed, but musically it didn't affected me. I am always looking for bands or projects, which carry the ghost of Pink Floyd's music to the current century.

Shamall's latest release "Turn Off" is really worth to mention in this context. I bought this double album in November 2013, when it's came out, but since that time it found the way back into my player a thousand times, because the overall spirit, sound, melodies and soli of "turn off" cast a spell over me anytime.

Think about all the breathing room those exceptional 70s albums have, lay back and are transported... this albums definitely does that. From Gilmore-like guitar licks, the memorable synth soli of Rick Wright to the overwhelming "spacy" soundstage, you feel the spirit. But despite the obvious influences, Shamall do their own thing.

Some people, especially tszirmay reviewed this fantastic album with all its details, so I won't repeat that, because it's all said.

But if you like Pink Floyd or a little bit "spacy" music, you owe it to yourself. All in all, it's a fantastic mélange of neo progressive music, psychedelic and space prog that should be in everyone's collection.
