Editorial Reviews

MEN OF LAKE performs a kind of Progressive rock based on the melancholic vocals sung by Maurizio POLI, on some early Seventies sounding organ parts (In the style of RARE BIRD), and on beautiful guitar solos. This Italian band became the champions of a kind of music with nostalgic ambiences, though never out-of-date. Thanks to their colours and qualities, MEN OF LAKE can be compared to THE MOODY BLUES or to VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR or KING CRIMSON's first albums. ""Out Of The Water"" (1993) shows a fully grown style that sometimes goes towards psychedelic rock. ""Music From The Land Of Mountains, Lake And Wine"" (1998), third album by this line-up, confirms the affection they have for the sounds and musical tendencies of the Seventies. The influences of KING CRIMSON, the Canterbury school or the sophisticated pop-rock of those days can easily be heard here. Not to be missed, under no circumstances !

4.0 out of 5 stars nostalgic yet new sounding November 27, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The use of classic hammond organ and distorted but tuneful lead guitar brings a nostalgic feel to this Italian CD, but the modern production values and keyboards and a certain intangible excitement provide the needed contrast. The power and majesty of early proto-progressive British bands like Procol Harum and Beggar's Opera is captured by Men of Lake who succeed in creating an updated version of that cherished slightly mournful sound. The vocals are suited to the music, and gorgeous melodies abound, particularly in "The Dark Little Figure", "The Day we Met", "The Perception of the Wind", and the oddly celtic sounding "Ballad of the Lake". Of the two readily available Men of Lake CDs, this one has the more striking songs while the followup "Music from the Land of Mountains, Lake and Wine" is perhaps more varied and artistically superior overall.
