3 stars This sounds really oldschool.

I've never heard of Zanov before, but I'm checking out the progressive/electronic genre more and more, these days.

Zanov uses analog synths, and the result is electronic space music, in the spirit of Tangerine Dream, Jean Michel Jarre, Eloy Fritsch, Eddie Jobson, etc. I don't know if people in 2016 are interested in this kind of music, made with these particular instruments. I can totally understand that people would consider it to sound dated or cheesy.

For me it works. I don't really care if a synthesizer-album is made in 1970, 1980 or 2014, as long as it sounds good, it's a nice addition to my collection. Maybe the album lacks rhythm; there are hardly drums. But the atmosphere is okay, but that's hardly a surprise, once you notice wich instruments are used. You really can't go wrong with VSC3 and ARP etc.

Not an outstanding and groundbreaking album, but good enough to keep me satisfied. The overall tone is relaxing and dreamy. I'd like to hear more from this artist.
