3 stars LIGHTSHINE had been a wellknown act in the german Lower Rhine region for some years. And 'Feeling' seems to be their only effort released in a limited edition of only 500 copies in vinyl. The album contains five melodious songs with krautrock leanings and references to US bands as for my impression. Good vocals (except some typical 'th'-problems) and a striking guitar work. We have a silken begin with Sword In The Sky and then the whole band cries immediately - shocking. But this is the only thing to remember because it's one of the mediocre songs.

Lory is partially reminding of the Allman Brothers Band whereas the vocals on Nightmare are near to the band America. But the whole song has a more psychedelic touch with some floydy guitar solos. The dry King And Queen is a dreamy blues for getting closer on a party and the best song is hold for closing 'Feeling'. Nice synth contributions and guitars in the vein of the US westcoast psych fading into a funfair sample at the end.

This album is interesting for fans who also like Eloy and Grobschnitt. Not very innovative but listenable though and available on CD from the Garden Of Delights label.

Rivertree | 3/5 |
