Lucid Planet – Lucid Planet II



Lucid Planet – Lucid Planet II
Self released – 2020
Rock, Prog, Metal, Psych
Rated: *****

We mentioned Lucid Planet back in August 2020 on a Quick Fire Friday segment when they had just sent out the first single Anamnesis for their new album Lucid Planet II. The album is out now and it is every bit as good as we expected it to be. Or maybe even better. They’ve taken prog rock and sharpened it, they gave it an earthy spin and they added so many layers that the end result will have a dizzying effect, even on the most seasoned listener of progressive rock. We believe the members to have shamanistic qualities that give their intense technical prowess an unpretentious and totally natural edge. Tribalistic elements, the use of didgeridoo, it all adds to the transcendental nature of the entire record. While sounding entirely modern they thrust forward into a realm of spirit altogether more ancient and intuitive. And the spiritual journey takes no less than an hour and almost ten minutes to complete its circle and bite itself in the tail, like the alchemic symbol of infinity likes to do. Like every humming bird and bumblebee, every sunflower, cloud and every tree… Listening… From the magical rainforests to the highest peaks of the Himalaya, while listening, every corner of the earth seems to smile at me...
