Вместе с великолепным дебютом американцев Astra, этот альбом их соотечественников Lynn Stokes & Sol Surfers - лучшее "блюдо" по рецептам великих Pink Floyd, что встречалось мне за последние несколько лет. Обволакивающие клавишные, "золотые" нити саксофонных партий, плывущая гитара, теплый, доверительно-повествовательный вокал - это новое путешествие на обратную сторону Луны просто невозможно не совершить.
'Attention Pink Floyd lovers! This album from Lynn Stokes will certainly interest you. ‘Terra Nocturne’ is packed to the rim with songs that remind you of PF…the atmosphere, the songs, the singing and even the vocal timbre. That all important Pink Floyd guitar sound can be found here as well. There is, however, not enough of those Floydian guitar solos to declare the whole thing as a Pink Floyd album. The solos are there, but they are mostly played by saxophone or by classical guitar.
I’m not saying that this is not a solid album, on the contrary. These are very beautiful songs that could’ve ended up on the ‘Wish You Were Here’ or ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ albums but didn’t due to a lack of space on the vinyls back then. The slide guitar, the build up and the structure is almost identical to the other songs such as “Us and Them”, “Shine on You Crazy Diamond” and “Wish You Were Here”. The sound of the saxophone solos is just phenomenal. It doesn’t take long to appreciate the songs because they give that familiar feeling. There are a few exceptions though. “Open Door” doesn’t sound anything like a Pink Floyd tune and therefore is the least liked. The production of the last song on the album is quite weak. Even though “Across the Barrier” contains the most guitar elements, its’ quality is boarder line. It could’ve been a lot better and that’s really a pity!
This album is a welcoming surprise for Pink Floyd lovers, especially since there are so few good symphonic albums in this style that being released. The music here is great so it doesn’t really matter that it’s not 100% Pink Floyd.'
