4 stars "Terra Serranum" is a step above the band's debut album "Pacific Coast Highway" and a fairly good match to their masterpiece "Natural Selection". It's hard to describe each of "Terra Serranum"s tracks individually because all of them feature many time changes and musical themes, and I lack the space to go into details. For example, after the quiet 2:51-minute intro, track 2 hits you right away with a floydian wall of sound but soon hooks you with some unexpected choppy beats, some entrancing guitar play over a background of keyboards and some cool, almost murmured vocals vaguely reminiscent of Mark Hollis - the contrast between their smoothness and the tightness of the music is fascinating. Like many others on the album, this track goes through a whole gamut of musical emotions and ends in an explosion of seering guitars and soaring keyboards.

The most interesting tracks are the longer ones (especially the title track) where the musicians are given the space to build on different themes, each blending ever so smoothly into one another. What amazes about "Terra Serranum" is its simplicity and the resulting overall, hallucinating effect. For a truly unique musical experience in psychedelia, immerse yourself into "Terra Serranum". It's prog from the bottom of the sea, full of wavy, lustrous, hidden treasures.

3 stars I found this record to be fairly average overall. I mean there are some beautiful instrumental moments, especially the Gilmour-like guitars.There is also a Pink Floyd vibe and we see that right away on the first song. The second song has a nice spacey intro, but the big let down for me are the vocals. At times they are a little off key and weak. And there is also a Neo-Prog feel at times, that I don't mind, I just didn't expect with a Pschedelic record.

For me the highlights are "Neptune's Last Tear" and "...The End Of Life As We Know It".

3 stars The first « Lands End » album was a pleasant surprise. Their soft approach to space (or ocean?) rock was particularly pleasant. And since you never change a winning team, the mood will be very similar on "Terra Serranum".

Some great but too scarce guitar breaks are fully Gilmour oriented ("For Reason Unkown") and add a special style to their peaceful music. This album is probably less personal than "Pacific Coast Highway". Definite and pleasant "Genesis" inspiration during the title track ("Cinema Show").

Best parts of this album are the instrumental ones. I felt vocals a bit weak, uniform and dull at times. Numbers are at times too jam- oriented as well to my taste. My attention could hardly be kept throughout this lengthy album (over seventy minutes).

The longest piece "Neptune's Last Tear" changes so many time from mood, without much of a recurrent theme, that it sounds as a collection of short pieces without unity. Still, it is one of the most interesting songs. There is a part featuring some sorts of whale cries (at least it is what I can distinguish). This reminds me of "Crying For The Whale" album from "Abarax". These two bands have definite musical links. And since water and oceans are a major preoccupation for "Lands End" (where the ocean starts), I guess that this song is fully in-line with their philosophy.

I preferred though their debut album to this one: it is less intense, less structured and less melodic. Three stars and at times useful when you need a smooth break.
