5 stars Carpet Knights, was the discovery of the year for me! It came to me by my friend, who bought it by hasard, entering an old school vynil and CD shop. There was a copy of that band describing their own style as psychedelic, stoner and progressive. He tought to himself, well, if I never try to pick anything with hasard, i will always listen to music from the same 'genre'. What a pick it was, hasard rarely bring you something as amazing as the Carpet Knights!

My favourite 'modern' album, for sure. Coming from Sweden, a perfect blend of Stoner-related ambiance and sounds with psychedelic approach, sometime expended to progressive rock. Complex at some moments (especially on drums), peaceful while hard rocking, this is marvelous work. Bringing flute during a nearly-chaotic (in terms of sound more than time structures) moment, seems to be nothing extravagant for these music masters. The vocals are incredibly well-done, perfectly matching with this kind of band.

So, reading what I wrote, you'll think, well, he's just a mindless fan. No, you obviously don't listen to the band, or have listened to it, thinking that. The only weak point would be to me, the lenght of the album, 48,31 minutes, wich is way too-short when you're deep into it.

One, if not the strongest point of the album, the production. Modern, REALLY really professional production, while not having a 'plastic' feeling.

Lost and so Strange is my Mind is recommanded to anyone, from Prog newcomer to the good 'ol dog. 5 stars, without any doubts.
