Review by Warthur
4 stars From the cover art down to the musical content, Siena Root's Far From the Sun feels like an artifact from the psychedelic era they are out to recapture. We're talking the more hard-rocking side of West Coast psychedelia, as represented by the likes of The Doors or the harder moments of Jefferson Airplane or maybe just a hint of Vanilla Fudge or early Deep Purple. There are a few whiffs here and there of later psych-prog styles, but for the most part it's an excellent attempt to recapture the sound of a past era without cloning any specific band of that time.
