2 stars A promising Turkish Floydish outfit have come here, with three stories about Journey Of The Shaman.

This album is NEMRUD's debut one, with that they are trying to get a formal contract to some record label currently (for the day when this review was written). They say they should be much influenced by Pink Floyd or Eloy, and their stuffs can straightly remind us the Space Rock pioneers. "Part I", for example, definitely has the soundscape of Roger-Floyd's "Animals" ... a great album. Slow mellow space rock, as it is said, can flow quietly and monotonously. Guess this monotonousness like only the flatness of Floydian sounds might be important for them? (Exactly Mert's whispering voices are more monotonous for me) Yes, I'd like to be ... otherwise they might have less originality and get to be "the second SF". One story has some parts musically different from each other, and this matter might make this song lacking in unity rather than colourful I feel (especially a danceable boogie one in "Part II"'s middle part, and so on), but as I've mentioned above, Floyd's "Animals" or other albums have some modulation and climax in their slow mellow space rock, and this should be their originality ... on the contrary, this unrefined atmosphere may be essential for them in my opinion.

Well where will their next story go? I'm very curious ...
