The Lidless Room by Crescent Moon is certainly an album that will be to the liking of 70's Pink Floyd fans. At the beginning of the CD there is a strong Pink Floyd influence to be heard. The lead vocalist Frank Peters is pretty much a Roger Waters sound alike. Most of the songs are written and perfomed in a manner that has a strong resemblance to Pink Floyd songs by Roger Waters, or to some of his solo output. Similar sounding guitars and keyboards also add to the illusion.
I would not go as far as calling Crescent Moon a clone band. There are a number of important differences between them and their muse. For one, their compositions don't come close to sounding like any actual Pink Floyd track. Also, the drumming is much more dynamic and modern than what Nick Mason does with the sticks. Finally, more and more as the albums goes on, the band seems to step away from their main influence and offer us a more personal style. Songs like ''The Lidless Room'' and ''The Devil and the Machine'' are good examples of that.
Still, like recent well received albums by Dave Kerzner (New World – 2014) and Andy Jackson (73 Days at Sea – 2016), Crescent Moon owes a lot to Pink Floyd and Roger Waters. This has not stopped many fans from enjoying the execllent albums by Kerzner and Jackson, and they should also seek out The Lidless Room.
For what it is, The Lidless Room by Crescent Moon comes highly recommended.
