What the critics say
Although the album was released by a company usually associated with blues, Andrzej Serafin’s music definitely differs from this quite narrow genre. This extremely talented vibraphonist and pianist succeeded in creating an intimate and a chamber music album joining jazz, blues and rock into a splendid union of sounds.
This unusual orchestra, its beautiful themes and interesting solo parts (especially the harmonica ones) make up for one of the most extraordinary albums on Polish music scene of 2010.
However, the question about classifying it into a particular trend or style should not be asked for this music slips out from any categorization in a truly swift way.

There aren’t many virtuoso performances and impromptu party on this record; however we can find here carefully arranged music, full of interesting sounds, often combined in surprising ways. I think that even if the team did not reinvent the wheel, they’ve showed something fresh and new.
This album has been recorded by artists from different musical worlds: vibraphonist Andrzej Serafin, playing on harmonica Robert Lenert and – known from Movement Evolution’s albums - jazz saxophonist Stanislaw Domarski. On LSD we can find nine blues pieces. Apart from Deep River all of them are composed by Robert Lenert.
This album made a lot of confusion among polish blues fans. Serafin has proven several times that he doesn’t like to close himself in one specific convention. That’s why we can hear jazz influences and a spirit of ambient atmosphere in his music. I’m listeting to LSD with increasing pleasure, discovering new relishes. The only caveat which arises is that the album is a little short. Every time while listening to the last song I feel sad that it's the end. That’s why only 4 ½ star.
