4 stars I've liked Max's guitar at first in Karfagen and Sunchild projects and later on visited a number of live concerts of 'Inside the Sound' and became their big fan. The second album of Inside the Sound 'Wizard's Eyes' opens more skills of the main force behind the band's name - Max Velichko. Music of the band becomes more interesting and walks in some new jazz, fusion, ethnic and sympho-rock areas, however hard and heavy is still being the main accent. In this album Max is not only strong guitar player but is showing interesting keyboard parties after the band's keyboard player has left 3 years ago. However 10 years ago with his friend, co-composer and bass player Dmitry Trifonof they started the band as a duo with Max taking care about guitar and keyboards. 'Wizard's Eyes' for sure is the next step of the band development now as a power trio. The new drummer Alexandr fits nicely the band going ahead to more complicated rhythms and time signatures. Dmitry's bass becomes more mature and provides not only rhythm section but as well more melodic support. Max palette includes heavy guitar riffs, aggressive explosions and sometimes unexpectedly fragile and nice solos. Very good album, compared to the previous one 'Time Z' this one is much better recorded and produced. To my taste the only thing that is missing - a few songs with rock vocal, however concept of the band is an instrumental music. I would like to give them 4.5, but have to keep to 4 stars and am sure that they will soon reach the next step in their development.
