Earling Great mix of psychedelic art rock and relaxed progressive rock.
Perhaps the best Pink-Floyd-like album after "Wish You Were Here". Favorite track: A Mysterious Cup of Tea - Part 1.

“Psychedelic Teatime” – the title of Berlin psychedelic prog project MARGIN’s debut album says it all. Because when the various sections of the predominantly long tracks flow in and out of each other; when musical structures dissolve before building back up again, and when melodies, sounds and noises all interconnect, it as if the spirit of PINK FLOYD is wafting between the notes.
But despite these psychedelic foundations, MARGIN retain their individuality. Because on this album, psychedelic art rock blends with progressive rock in ways which are new and unique.
MARGIN’s debut album ‘Psychedelic Teatime’ therefore proves itself to be a fascinating reference album for psychedelic prog as it is today.

»On the whole, this is an exciting album for the friends of interesting music. Those who have missed the atmosphere of the early 70's are served well here and it once again brings to my mind how interesting music has been at the heyday of prog.« (Germany 07/2014)

»In conclusion, MARGIN’s ‘Psychedelic Teatime’ has captured the sound and feel of late 60’s / early 70’s Psychedelic Pop and Progressive Rock perfectly, and by melding the essence of the quoted influential genres and artists, they have given us a highly enjoyable glimpse into the past from their unique sound perspective of the present day.« (Scotland/UK 07/2014)

»Just below 57 minutes, that PINK FLOYD would have been well advised ahead of their time as the layered on thick „Atom Heart Mother“.« (Germany 7/2014)

»One hour sheer psychedelic prog delight without any drugs. On the imaginative and highly atmospheric disc especially many Pink Floyd references apply.« (Germany 7/2014)

»Whether this is a 'Progressive Teatime' or rather a 'Psychedelic' one, each listener may decide for himself – this one-hour tea party was a most pleasant surprise in either case.« (Germany 08/2014)

»A big surprise that really rocked my world.« (international 08/2014)

»With Psychedelic Teatime MARGIN have created a masterpiece of solemn Psychedelic, which also retro- and neoproggies might like.« (Germany 09/2014)

»MARGIN perfectly transposes us to the great psychedelic period, thanks to very beautiful work.« (Belgium 09/2014)

»As to that, let me quote the last words of the song "Psychedelic Underground - The short trip": "Oh, what a trip!"« (Germany 09/2014)

»Lutz is a remarkable musician, and MARGIN does not present itself as a PINK FLOYD copy, but rather as a real hope for the international prog rock scene, for that matter, I raise a cup to it.« (France 09/2014)

»ELOY, GONG, OZRIC TENTACLES, GENESIS, JEFFERSON AIRPLANE, PHIDEAUX, and of course PINK FLOYD… these are the artists I think about whenever I hear "Psychedelic Teatime". Oh those old sounds fully of great references to modernity!« (MLWZ = "A Small Lexicon of Great Bands" - Poland 10/2014)

»This project leaves no doubt: the pot won't be empty for a long time.« (Germany 10/2014)

»This MARGIN album is a lovely discovery. In the clutter of CDs being released, being more or less expected - and in part, finally, relatively deceptive - Psychedelic Teatime merits its place, one of the best, and in its discrete but effective approach, could forge ahead with a beautiful retro-pschye, which is absolutely modern« (France 10/2014)

»I only needed two listens to be fully seduced by this ambitious album.« (France 10/2014)

»With flourishes harking back 45 years to the end of the 1960s but incorporated into a more modern setting, this debut album by Margin offers a lot to the listener. Of course, most immediately it will be fans of early FLOYD who will latch onto it (at least those that don't take umbrage at anyone daring to try replicate the music of their heroes, irrespective of intent) but there is plenty on offer.« (Netherlands 10/2014)

»All taken though, with MARGIN we are definitely caught in that late-sixties / early-seventies proto space rock place. Enjoy!« (international 10/2014)

»Psychedelic Teatime is another wonderful discovery in what is turning out to be another strong year in progressive rock.« (USA 11/2014)
