3 stars This album is quite similar to their debut work, with all its drawbacks like lack of instrumentation, lasting parts with little to no 'events' in them and the longer tracks still fail to be 'whole' pieces IMO. I keep losing focus when listening to the last 22 min track.

Most of this album can be described as some windy synth layer with 1-2 keyboards parts and drums if you are lucky (they are still programmed but good). The fast-paced parts of 'Nepsis' (first half), 'Light of the ice' (mid), 'Transspace express' (end) are very good, but the real highlight is the second, fast-paced half of 'Leopard hunt' with heavy keyboards and harpsichord interleaved with each other and supported by drums. That's where Roz vitalis shines IMO. Ivan Rozmainskiy also shines with colorful moody keyboard soloing, but unfortunately not on this album.
