5 stars When I first read the titles of the tracks on the back of the cd, I couldn't imagine what I would have heard. I thought that the lyrics were in english, but then the title track exploded with its russian vocals!!

But this isn't a problem, my friends. Here we have some great pieces of music, no matter in what languages they are sung. This is symphonic prog at his best, and the instrumental parts cover more than a half of the entire cd. Anyway, russian vocals are very nice, I pretty enjoyed the vocal lines and the singer's voice. They give a particular mood to the entire album.

The music you will find is fantastic. I've found no weak tracks, and almost every song is a masterpiece on his own. Keyboards and guitars are everywhere, long instrumental passages, lots of fantastic and powerful solos and riffs. In some parts keys and guitars have a kind of "prog metal" sound (Bird), while some passages are softer and give you a feeling of peace and tranquillity (Consolation). Despite the russian lyrics, you will easily remember some melodies and harmonies of the album, just after one listening or two.

An honorable mention goes to the trumpet and to the saxophone. Their use gives this record a lot of originality, and strenghten the compositions, making them particular and sophisticated.

A very special album for everyone who enjoys Pink Floyd, Genesis, and Anglagard music. I can't tell exactly the emotions it gave me the first time I heard it, because they were so varied and dreamlike that it's impossible to describe the feeling I get. Long time has passed since an album caught me as "The Sixth Sense" did.
