4 stars This album is made by different members of Russian prog bands and the band's name come from the 2 main composers, keyboard player Ivan Rozmainsky and guitar player Vladimir Mikhaylov. The eclectic style of the music makes this album something intriguing. When you think the band is delivering some beautiful and simple melodies, it can switch to something darker with more discordant parts. Those who enjoy avant-garde music will be familiar with this kind of music. The music seems to start from improvised jams but instead of extending this jams into long instrumental parts, the music cut short with songs that are short in duration. The overall atmosphere is quite enjoyable and is not heavy but more into the symphonic style with songs that have some melodies developed in a rather slow pace most of the times. The addition of the clarinet to the keyboards and the guitar give more textures to the overall sound. This is an album that requires some concentration and time to enjoy because of the nature of the music who is adventurous and because the musicians don't try to impress their audience with big guitar solos, but instead rely on subtle arrangements and by putting you in an atmosphere where light meets dark.
