Skylight, the 2nd album by Montreal-based psych-rock trio A Devil''s Din, is 42 minutes of psychedelic sounds, fuzzed-out guitars, catchy melodies, rich harmonies, and unexpected twists and turns.

David Lines, chief songwriter explains, "Essentially this album is really a tribute to the psychedelic experience, and I drew on my own personal involvement with certain consciousness-expanding substances to create a set of songs that would take the listener on a journey, both lyrically and musically.

Within these 9 songs there exists a certain contrast between the hallucinatory and the heavy. Tom G. Stout, the bassist chimes in, "Even though we are inspired by LSD trips, we still like to hit hard, and enjoy getting a little aggressive. You have to balance out the light with the darkness, because otherwise you''re not being real."

The psychedelic meets progressive rock on this album, with unanticipated rhythmic shifts, instrumental forays and extended solos. Lines concludes, "We are a rock band that quite obviously owes a lot of its influence to another era, not just by sound and texture, but by the spirit of adventure, daring and experimentation that was prevalent then. And we want to bring all of that to the world today, right now."
