3 stars Sounds like The Grateful Dead meets one of Turkish rock legends Bunalim, at least for me. AQUA TALK are a promising Turkish rock trio founded at the end of 2015 that would have a enthusiasm for playing progressive rock based upon Western Culture, and obviously sorta cultural fusion of East and West can be heard via their debut creation "Whatever Tickled Your Mind". I guess in Turkey might be cultural or religious bridges here and there (forgive me if I'm not correct) and their musical mixture is quite acceptable and enjoyable indeed, although there is not enough 'innovative' passion.

From the beginning of the first track "Dead Man's Dream" catchy folksy riffs like Dead in the mid 1970s are launched. Their soundscape could be called as pop / rock-based sound structural mixture methinks. Spacey psychedelia like Floyd, bluesy hard press like Bunalim ... various rock elements can be touched but basically of mainstream. Pop, delightful atmosphere are definitely around them. And simultaneously there are somehow tragic footprints. Wondering where they want to go whilst listening to this album ... and it's understandable they could share safe and sound all over the world, through such a fantastic opus. Do hope they will get much bigger in near future.
