which is pretty much what I was expecting

Great singer and though the music is electronic with the bass as the lead instrument on most of the songs it is still really good. Another good CD by Lunatic Soul.
Another fantastic offering from Riverside frontman
Mariusz Duda is the man behind this fantastic band. He is Lunatic Soul. Mariusz is also the leader, vocalist, bass and acoustic guitar player in the fantastic Polish Progressive Rock band "Riverside." This Lunatic Soul CD is a bit of a departure from his previous Lunatic Soul records. At "Teamrock.com" Mariusz describes this CD as "the most accessible and personal album in the Lunatic Soul Discography." I find it extremely enjoyable as the music moves you and draws you in as you listen. I haven't stopped playing it since purchasing it on it's release date. Great job Mariusz! Riverside and Lunatic Soul are GREAT bands! Keep up the excellent work!! Strongly Recommended!!!
About Lunatic Soul
A progressive rock band whose approach embraces electronic and new age influences, Lunatic Soul is a project led by Mariusz Duda, also known as the bassist and singer with the group Riverside. Born in Poland on September 25, 1975, Duda's musical career began in the '90s when he joined the heavy prog band Xanadu, appearing on their album Wczorajsze ślady. In 2002, Duda became a founding member of Riverside, a group whose music fused elements of progressive rock and heavy metal. In 2008, looking for an outlet for his compositions that didn't suit Riverside, he recorded a solo album under the name Lunatic Soul. Built around arrangements that included no guitars, Lunatic Soul's self-titled debut album appeared in October 2008, and rose to number 23 on the Polish album charts. From this point on, Duda divided his time between Riverside and Lunatic Soul, releasing Lunatic Soul II in November 2010, Impressions a year later, and Walking on a Flashlight Beam in October 2014. In 2016, Duda took time away from both Riverside and Lunatic Soul to record a collaborative session with guitarist Maciej Meller of Quidam and drummer Maciej Gołyźniak of Sorry Boys. Credited to Meller Gołyźniak Duda, Breaking Habits featured Duda on bass and vocals; he also wrote the lyrics for the songs. In June 2017 Duda unveiled the fifth Lunatic Soul album, Fractured, a set of songs inspired by a challenging period in his personal life. ~ Mark Deming
