Lickerish. Francis - Far And Forgot From The Lost Lands (2012)

The one and only album from this British artist.

Francis Lickerish did the guitars, keyboards and lute himself.

He had help from other musicians who did the cor anglais, oboe, trumpet, flute, lap steel guitars, guitars, cello, bass, drums, percussion and female vocals. The full symphony orchestra was created by computers and keyboards.

Francis Lickerish is a member of The Enid. A band whose full discography I intend to review, starting from this summer onwards. 

This album is very much in the Enid landscape and a bit of a shock therapy for me. 

The music is more or less classical music with some electric guitars and female vocals sporadic involved on this seventy minutes long album.

I am by no means a fan of the classical music genre although I love symphonic prog. This album is too classical music and it is too ambitious too. It is great to have ambitions and it is fantastic when projects like this album also includes some great or even some good music.

This album falls a bit flat on it's face, though.

The music is decent enough and this album has grown on me. Nevertheless, this is just a decent album in my estimations. 

The Enid fans should check out this album.
