4 stars Lunatic Soul is a famous band of Polish band Riverside band, by its bassist Mariusz DUDA and keyboardist Michał ŁAPAJ composition, but Michał ŁAPAJ just to help DUDA made the first album, behind the album most of the keyboard are maciej szelenbaum , Plus drummer wawrzyniec dramowicz. So the band's dominance is DUDA, they have just released the fifth album, DUDA is swept all the music except drums creation.

20 years released "Lunatic Soul II", 11 years released pure instrumental works "Impressions", 14 years released "Walking On A Flashlight Beam", published in 17 years, the release of the first album "Lunatic Soul" "Fractured".

DUDA under the Lunatic Soul's music style is significantly different from the Riverside, first of all can not be counted as avant-garde metal, electric guitar is clearly less than the proportion of music, more dependent on bass and keyboard drive, and some of the world music features, integration East and West art, they are more like the psychedelic period of PF and early PT, the recent few are integrated into the electronic elements, can be counted as a compromise before the shake or cross before the shake.

"Walking On A Flashlight Beam" is a concept album, some people think that is to say a escape from the reality of the art of creators, their attention will be completely concentrated in the inner world, choose seclusion and loneliness. In short, it is the object of "loner" - stinging family (to describe those from the community, some autistic young people), compared to the hustle and bustle of society, they prefer to be alone, stay in music, books and heart In the world. But I think there may be in the description of "autism" or "autism" in the world, there are many descriptions and autism is too close. Music sad, gloomy, full of topics such as the general sense of loneliness.

The band has just released a new album "Fractured", is also quite good, personally think that LS's five albums are to listen to.
