    The Sleepwalking Society is a stunner; a jazz-pop record with brilliant R&B and folk undertones woven throughout.

    Though the album hits all the right notes, the muted horns, understated strings and whispery vocalist with major funk potential leaves you nostalgic for something more.

    Despite its overtures to the contrary, this is an album that you definitely don't want to sleepwalk to: It invites close listening and appreciation to scour the depths of the musicianship offered at the hands of Lamdin and his cohort in arms.

    The album is deceptively simple, but underneath the easy-listening vibe lies a fascinating medley of genres and musical references.

    In one word an impressive music album with trends to jazz, folk and soul. The Sleepwalking Society Album Shapes a colorful rhythmic spectrum starting from Bluesy vocals, to a wonderful lyrical sax (that specially can be heard on MOCKINGBIRD son). Moreover the album has a logical sequence, starts from an emphatic rhythm in very beginning of it, and finish by CHERRY and HUSH with completely different atmosphere. Also The German singer JOSA PEIT made a pure atmosphere throughout the album with her brilliant smooth voice.
    Generally the album is a successful jazz-pop record while on some parts has the mood of sophisticated music. Strong concepts are tangible behind the album that starts from the name of SLEEPWALKING SOCIETY. On the other hand songs generally manage to feel long so can attract the audiences to spend more time on them.
