The Lunatics (2004) -Tour Du Monde

Artist: The Lunatics
Albums: Tour Du Monde
Release date: 2004
Quality: mp3 CBR 320
Size: 91 MB

This is the third album from this Finnish instrumental rock group. Their sound has plenty of surf influence, but they also have some with more of an exotic flavor, some that are slower atmospheric pieces, some that are rock out, and several of them have funk and ska rhythms. “Ripe Oat” has a western/country feel to it, “Cramps” features saxophone, and they cover Tchaikovsky’s “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.” Their guitars have a clean sound in most parts, and are played exceptionally well. The production is clean too, so if you are looking for some lo-fi, fuzzed-out surf rock, this isn’t it. But it is quite good. ~ BL, Rock'n'Roll Purgatory
