3 stars I'll have to say this about Terra Nocturne - it is a strong and well thought out atmosphere Lynn Stokes and his Sol Surfers are exploring on this production.

The musical style explored is a dark one; as fits the title of the album; but also one that is mellow, slick and highly melodic. Acoustic guitars and piano are the main melodic providers, serving distinct themes on which the rest of the instruments can play upon; with floating synths in the back adding texture while sax, flute and melodic guitar soloing are given the limelight in the front; besides the highly pleasing and relaxing vocals of Stokes.

In style I'd describe this as a mellow Pink Floyd from the late 70's approaching a new age type of music - the dark atmospheres and light melodic explorations in a rich and textured setting are highly comparable to Gilmour and company, and the guitar soloing just as much - but the compositions are slower, not at all as adventurous or creative but very well performed though.

Those who like Pink Floyd at their most mellow as well as finding new age-tinged music interesting should get out and sample this creation - chances are good it'll be regarded as a treasured acquisition.

Windhawk | 3/5 |
