5 stars This album deserves the attention of fans of progressive rock, primarily because the Ukrainian composer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist Vladimir Gorashchenko presents his very special approach to progressive rock music. The album is hard to attribute to one particular genre of progressive rock. However, fans of different genres will surely find a lot interesting in this music. And they are already enjoing it - Modern-Rock Ensemble was included to Progarchives only on the 16-th of December 2016 and from this date 4 days occupies the 1-st position among "Most Popular Groups" for last 24 hours.

Obviously the best is the central composition of the album - "Touch the Mystery", which is framed by two beautiful, melodic compositions. In "Touch the Mystery" Vladimir joined vivid musical pictures of peripetias of life and searching of mystery of life in an unwrapped composition - a call to all of us: to find yourself and to create own story.

The first track of the album - "Meditations" due to complex and multifaceted structure, elegant arrangement and experimental vocal can pretend on role of central composition in a separate album.

The composition "Swamp" is a tour in the jazz-rock past of Vladimir. Nevertheless, it is organically fit into the composition of the album, emphasizing profitable creativity of the author and still reflects the distinctive style of the Modern-Rock Ensemble.

In this project, Vladimir has managed to collect some of the best musicians of Ukraine. The soundtrack is full of the sound of live instruments.

This album is a great contribution to the Progressive rock.
