Prog Reviewer
3 stars Lemmus Lemmus is a psychedelic space rock band coming from Israel with 2 albums under their wings so far. The second offer self titled issued in 2008 is considered being better then the debut, both songwriting and skills of the musicians improving a lot. Well, first thing is that is impossible not to see this album on the shelvs when want to buy it , it has a bright colored art work with typical psychedelic/space theme that are right in the eye. But what about the music, well not so in the ear I might say, psychedelic space prog with varied keyboards and with some folk tinged passages, not bad at all, but far from great to me. The music is reminescent with let's say Pink Floyd - Syd Barett era. Besides main line- up there are 9 guest musicians using diffrent instruments like flute, sitar , tabla who gives a very psychedelic feel. All pieces are ok but nothing is groundbreaking here, but most of the time enjoyble. Maybe the unenjoyble thing here is that the overall sound is little to lazy and mellow like on My Stars, My Moons, My Love, a piece that I don't considered quite great, but a tune like Your Dream Revisited is pretty much more then ok with mellotron working "in good condition". All in all if anyone intresting into this type of music, must considered this band from Israel a quite worthy listning, if not then forget about this band. I'm somehwere in between so will be 3 stars only.
