5 stars Spending my teenage years listening to a new genre that became known as Prog-Rock and a regular diet of Yes, Genesis, Jethro Tull etc. and being proud of us Brits producing the best of it IMHO I was very curious at what this band from Ukraine could do. I already had 3 of their albums and was impressed - but then I saw this and was staggered at such incredible music played brilliantly!

Keyboard player Anthony Kalugin really "tinkles the ivories" with a slick style that reminds me of the great Keith Emerson. And he has a very melodic voice that carry the songs just right. And then there's guitar man Max; with so many guitar heroes from UK, USA and Germany its so nice to hear one from Eastern Europe for a change! I hear touches of John Petrucci and Alex Lifeson. Solid bass holds the entire set together and the drums drive things perfectly. And 2 lovely ladies who add more delicious keys and some sweet vocals; on Mirrors Olga sounds a bit like Kate Bush.

I absolutely LOVE this DVD and it was my fave DVD of last year! So please give this a watch, and although they haven't the light show of Pink Floyd, the music really stands up for itself. Excellent musicians!
