This is my favourite CD at the moment. This man is inspiration on legs. Check out this video: vimeo.com/90403552 I have this in my car for every journey to remind me how amazing it is to be a living human being in an age of wonders.
I love these guys, I hope there will be more releases from this outfit. Russia's answer to Porcupine Tree? Give it a try, I am playing this one regularly, I don't need to understand the lyrics - but I am now interested to translate the lyrics as I enjoy the songs so much. If there was a physical CD I would buy it.
Some more sublime Progressive Post Rock from my favourite Russians. What's not to like? My favourite track is Легкость (Lightness) which I loved when they released it as an single. New stand-out track for me is Как никогда.
When this came out I didn't quite get it but I knew it was something special. Same thing happened with Chris Squire's Fish Out Of Water all those years ago. It just grows on you with each new listen, the subtleties of the vocal harmonies seeming to become more intricate. Definately a slow burner but also a must have.
I would file this with my Alan Parsons collection - and that's a good thing. The album opens with a cinematic piece which sets the scene nicely. I have grown to like this album more and more, my favourite track being Tears of Blood which has some beautiful woodwind moments which offer the kind of escapism I am looking for in my music.
