Heptagram - Lucidity (2012)

The debut album from this project from Bulgaria. A project lead by Daniel Ivanov. I feel that I am on a bit thin ice when I am reviewing albums like that. Albums with the new prog rock sound.

The basis of this album is the sounds of Porcupine Tree. Then you can add some electronica, post rock, indie, space and folk rock. The basis is half acoustic guitars and vocals. They are helped out by drums and bass. The music is dreamy, ambient and flowery. It is flower power anno 2012. Flower power with totally different instruments than in the 1960s. But still post rock flower power. Very much contemporary with a modern sound.

Daniel's vocals and guitars are really good. In particular the guitars which is more like wall of sound than guitar solos. That is a great sound. My gripe is the lack of great songs. As a debut album, this is a great effort. I am though missing some great songs.

This album is a free download and almost an obligatory download too. See link below.
