Re: New Lunatic Soul

This is the best thing I've ever heard with the Lunatic Soul name on it. It's actually pushing towards Riverside territory in the wider use of rock instrumentation and beats (the title track could have been on Rapid Eye Movement, even the bass tone is the same), and the electronic influence is beau...
