The Lucid Dream - Compulsion Songs album review

Album Review

Carlisle space cadets offer psychedelic rock for the 21st-century

Those heads still lamenting The Horrors’ decision to move away from kosmiche-inspired mind melting into smoother terrains will find plenty to enjoy with The Lucid Dream’s latest onslaught. As Bauhaus did several generations before them, the Carlisle space cadets have discovered the joys of throwing reggae-derived dynamics into their oeuvre and this, much like stirring 500 micrograms of Albert Hoffman’s chemical creation into a pot of mushroom tea, makes for a potent and memorable brew.
