Prog Reviewer
3 stars ETERNAL WANDERERS are lead by Kanevsky sisters (vox, keys - guitar). Most Proggers usually tend to ignore female-fronted bands for some reasons ('they won't be better than RENAISSANCE / CURVED AIR / MAGENTA / etc', or 'they're poppy/song-oriented', or whatever). Let's leave these issues to physicians and turn to music. There's a rumour that early EW demos were more electronic-sided, with programmed drums, sounding like a mixture of ELP and OZRIC TENTACLES. I wouldn't have been there reviewing this stuff then! :)

Don't know about the past, but now EW sound like a cross between MAGENTA and MOSTLY AUTUMN with huge classic-era PINK FLOYD influence. 7 long tracks, some are fully instrumental (like 12-min long epic), some are more vocal driven, but each has its own colouring and manner. EW aren't trying to sound too epic or pretentious, instead, their sound is mostly intimate and sincere. A word should be said about both Elena and Tatyana musicianship skills; some sexists think girls can't play well. Should I say THESE girls can prove that they DO play well?

In conclusion, I must admit that now I listen to Russian Prog without any sign of prejudice or disbelief. 2007 was amazing for Russian Prog: just look how THE GOURISHANKAR and APPLE PIE ripped PA's ratings! :) With 2008 that has already brought some stunning releases from the camp (ACTUAL MUSIC QUARTET is what I plan to grab next) I believe Russian and Post-Soviet Prog/Experimental scene will bloom even more. Thank you for the music, ETERNAL WANDERERS, and good luck!
