Trip Into The Light fantastic is the second album by John Simms' Light Trails. The music has traces of the distinctive guitar sound but the overall sound is a lot more eclectic and has something of a specerock atmosphere, full of unexpected twists and turns underpinned by a storytelling lyrical approach.
