"Terra Nocturne" by Lynn Stokes & Sol Surfers is a musical journey through many moods and emotions, highlighted by well-crafted songs, thoughtful arrangements and exceptional musicianship. Each piece is very symphonic and orchestral in nature, representing a single movement in the overall album, which is meant to be a cohesive and interrelated piece of music. The style of writing on this album draws a strong inspiration from the music of Pink Floyd. Listen to "Where Have You Gone" and "Let Go," for great examples of this in both the songwriting and the smooth, mellow vocal style. While this influence is evident, this material is also very well-written and unique, being calm and psychedelic while also complex and elaborate at the same time. The album contains many sections where instruments are panned throughout the stereo spectrum, providing an entrancing listening experience through headphones. This release also features many excellent musical performances, from the skilled saxophone runs on "Sacred Moon's Light" to the fine guitar work by Stokes on the title track "Terra Nocturne." "Open Door" and "Across the Barrier" are of a more upbeat nature, with great performances by all involved. "Terra Nocturne" by Lynn Stokes & Sol Surfers will be enjoyed by fans of rock music with the symphonic atmosphere of Pink Floyd and Roger Waters.
