Compulsion Songs is the third album from Carlisle's The Lucid Dream. This latest release sees the band venturing into pastures new again. Recorded at Whitewood Studios, Liverpool, with Rob Whiteley, the album is produced alongside long-time collaborator Ross Halden.
The LP opens with the single 'Bad Texan' (which was originally released on 12" vinyl earlier in the year) and sees the band experimenting with a fusion of dance floor meets Krautrock. The Krautrock/kosmiche groove is also present alongside new-wave in the 2-part opus 'Nadir'/'Epitaph', which closes the album.
'21st Century' won't be everyone's cup of tea. it opens with punky overtones and incorporates a 2-minute white noise/garage/rockabilly blast, inspired by the Beastie Boys.
The album contains 7 tracks (44 min, 05 sec) and it's diverse and interesting enough to make it worth your while at least checking out. It might be your thing.
