Prog Reviewer
3 stars This last Landberk album is not a revolutionary one but could be in the liking of the fans.

What you'll get here is the melancholic mood which is so typical of these Nordic bands. As if their climate influenced their works. This album is the continuation of their previous albums but I admit that there is some feeling of tiredness here.

Inspiration is average IMO, even if Humanize is on the melodic and good side. The feeling I have while I listen to this Indian Summer is that it seems as if the band is on some sort of obliged duty. The magic of their debut is far away. Songs are more straight-forward, heavier (1st Of May) which has no particular added value for a band as Landberk.

There are hardly any highlights on this Indian Summer. The band seems to draw his melancholy throughout the album. Uninspired melodies and vocals like the one that can be listened in I Wish I Had a Boat is quite alien to their good and early work but the same applies to Why Do I Still Sleep (no wonder though with such a dull tone).

I am rather disappointed with this recording. The flame is almost extinguished. I understand some low ratings here. Mine wouldn't be that harsh, but let's be honest: we are not facing a great album here. Average I would say. I will still round it up to three stars, but I am not sure this album deserves it.
