  1. Vessels
    by Be'lakor
    Grasping Light Grasping Light
    An immense work of art. Brilliant concept behind the story, very good lyrics, which is rather rare in metal. It's best to experience this album as a whole, to follow the story.
    Musically very engaging, with catchy tunes and engulfing atmosphere. One of my absolute favourites in metal.
  2. Of Breath and Bone (Vinyl Remaster)
    by Be'lakor
    Side A - Abeyance / Remnants Side A - Abeyance / Remnants
    This is a perfect metal band. Even better in vinyl mix, hell yeah!
    The inspiration behind these riffs and melodies must be truly formidable, this band is uniquely good at composing music. What's more, Be'lakor sounds like Be'lakor, they do not copy or imitate other metal bands, and somehow their music remains immediate and not contrived. There is also a lot of classically inspired melodies and harmonies on this album, which makes for interesting re-listens.
  3. Stone's Reach (Vinyl Remaster)
    by Be'lakor
    Side D - Aspect / Countless Skies Side D - Aspect / Countless Skies
    Magnificent album, a contemporary classic of the style. I like every song here. Rich in memorable melodies and ever developing, moving forward. Maybe it's the best album by this band to date, although Vessels is on par in many ways.
  4. The Frail Tide
    by Be'lakor
    A Natural Apostacy A Natural Apostacy
    A truly great beginning for a mighty band. This stands on its own, it's not just a first album that is good to have listened to and move on.
    In some ways this is not as tight, not as perfect compositionally as the next three albums. But very fine music nevertheless.
  5. Citadel
    Painters of the Tempest (Part III): Reveries from the Stained Glass Womb Painters of the Tempest (Part III): Reveries from the Stained Glass Womb
    Masterful, intricate, thoughtfully written and sincerely performed music. Honestly, only superlatives and unreserved adoration for this band. This music is able to devour a listener, to uplift and make them open to the beauty of the outer and the inner world. After listening to this album I often find myself in a state of acute mindfulness, heightened senses and openness to the world. This is music that moves and improves a person.

    by White Ward
    Black Silent Piers Black Silent Piers
    Incredible. Loved every bit of it. A blend of highly emotional, tight black metal with expressive vocals, and transparent cool jazz. Beautiful, and a great soundtrack to late-night strolls through the city. A very contemporary style of music, it breathes with the city.
  8. Sleep at the Edge of the Earth
    by Wilderun
    The Faintest Echo (Ash Memory Part IV) The Faintest Echo (Ash Memory Part IV)
    A masterpiece of music and storytelling. This is an experience that will leave a mark on the listener. You will remember these songs for your entire life. They form a perfect trajectory between quiet and raging energy, bringing the listener into an unknown yet familiar land of fairytale and nature alive with spirit and soul.
  9. Seraphical Euphony
    by Hyperion
    Seraphical Euphony Seraphical Euphony
    This album has much in common with many classical masterpieces of concert music. It reminds me of such composers as Chopin, it's very Romantic in the strict sense of the word. The grandeur and scale of this music is something very different and not often seen even in metal.
    I highly recommend this album to extreme metal fans and everyone who is into big sweeping music.

  14. The Great Filter / Type III
    by Mesarthim
    The Great Filter The Great Filter
    Mighty, spacious music. Mesarthim plunge you into the cold space, and its vastness is easy to feel in this couple of pieces. A very good effort. Waves of music make you experience space in all its black glory.
  15. Presence (E.P.)
    by Mesarthim
    Eschaton Part II Eschaton Part II
    This EP shows a lighter side of Mesarthim's music. The riffs are not as monolithic as on previous recordings, there are more electronics, they even sound rather upbeat. Still, the feeling is there. I liked this one very much, it's a good soundtrack to life and thought.

    Lost Rivers of London Lost Rivers of London
    Inspired and lyrical, mellow prog. Love the rich instrumentation, the textures, the composition. Everything in this album, and in its companions, speaks of the band's curiosity for music and love for their art. No anger, no gloom here, only an open heart and a wise smile. This music does good with every note.

    I need some shining armor ASAP!
    This band creates accessible and memorable music with a flavor of chivalric romance. The Gascon language suits it well, because it is a modern version of the Occitan language of knights and troubadours.
    The songs are really catchy and upbeat. Good folk metal/punk stuff, a bit like Mago de Oz but better. And don't miss the song about eating mushrooms! I like it that the language has a special word for "a lot of tasty mushrooms". Food for knights, yeah! Chaaaarge!

    Catchy as hell. This band has to become famous, they deserve it. And what a name! It means Tear the Bellows, ie accordion bellows.
    The overall feeling is playful and energizing, even with darker themes, thanks to the accordion and vocals, and also some meaty riffing. I like the singer very much, she can sound both enticing and menacing. The lyrics are meaningful and poetic, not a missed word or rhyme.

    Спасибо, ребята! Вы большие молодцы. Очень яркая и классная музыка и отличные стихи.

  26. J.S. Bach: "Open" Goldberg Variations, BWV 988 (Piano)
    by Kimiko Ishizaka
    Aria Aria
    A faithful and restrained interpretation. To me, this will be the default Goldberg on piano. The performer doesn't put herself first, but rather the composer, so if you're into a conversation with Bach, this one works very well.
  27. Bach: Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1
    by Kimiko Ishizaka
    Fugue No. 2 in C minor, BWV 847 Fugue No. 2 in C minor, BWV 847
    Very well played. Just as Ms. Ishizaka's other recording here, this is a restrained and tactful version of the work. It is a very good introduction for new listeners, I think.
