4 stars Well, i always look forward to Igor's music. His musical preferences are quite close to my own; and that is why i decided to purchase his album.

First thing that takes my attention is disc cover. A bit melancholic, a bit sinked unto the sadness. I dont know exactly. However im sure, that there is a shadow of hope all along his work.

Park Luny is a little light piece of music (in comparison with two fellow tracks, rarely), full of samples. I say a little light? Well, it is only the first feeling. Later you will find, that it is complex and serious, and its only a semblance of joy and happiness at this one.

By The Music Of Autumn Trees is a busy one track. The first part starts with little vagueness theme, maybe it tells us about the daily riutine in drab town. Or maybe it tells about our destiny? That we can not change our fate? I think that only God and author knows exactly, and i am not sure that the last one does. We hear clatter of broken glass in second part. It is very complex and we can feel agression in it.

The Fried Bull's Blues is a full theme. Frankly, there i found some resemblance with GYBE, especially with their F# A# Infinity album. As Providence on it, Bull's Blues first part is starting with samples. The second part (most impressive in the whole album, i think) is ver y melodic, and it takes its way right into the heart. And then, its hard to forgot it. It plays a few minutes, and then we hear the agression and maybe fear. Distortion beats hard. After all, the track end with something dark. It is even darker than the way it was started.

The Diary of the Missed One is a complete album. It is finished, and as i found, Igor can compete with any his fellow performer, just like GYBE.
