"Sun dial follows the same path and structure like the other well known progressive/psychedelic rock groups of the genre. It is not particullary original nor will it be one of those albums which will gain more recognistion as time carries on. Nevertheless, a solid fan of the genre will most likely enjoy this album thoroughly. As is often the case the album starts off with an introductory hammer that is meant to encapture the entire theme of the album. And as is to be expected somewhere in the middle of the album, there is a lenghty structured 'epic' song that is meant to be the record's centre piece. The same goes for the closer of the album, which attempts at the 'instrumental masterpiece' formula. The musicianship of the group is without question above par. One is offered solid synths, sludgy yet tamed and polished guitar playing. The vocals are a hybrid between early Jim Morrison and Roger Waters. Not a brilliant record but if one has a knac for this type of music, then it will be your money worth. However, if you are expecting this 'deep, neo Floyd' album then look elsewhere."
Post-industrial art rock

"This is hard rock/alternative with an experimental and arty edge using electronics and loud distortion like on the track Dual with its one minute of harsh feedback reminiscent of groups like Mercury Rev. The opener Send is a great instrumental, while Star Baby is a spectacular slab of sonic delight. My other favourites include Going Down, Everything You See and Watch You Smile with their sublime vocals and fluid, mesmerising melody lines. It's a pity that such original rock experimentation should remain so obscure."

"Looks to be the band's fourth effort.Sundial was,apparently a great little-known underground UK neo-psychedelic trio of the 90's.'Libertine' is okay,but I think I liked their 'Live Drug' CD(on the UK Acme label)better.Good luck in trying to find a copy of it.Well worth the search.Tunes here that sort of had me sit up and take notice were "Watch You Smile","Everything You See","Dual" and "Star Baby".Might appeal to fans of My Bloody Valentine,Lush,Flaming Lips and Bevis Frond."
