4 stars The Rozmainsky & Mikhaylov Project is an eclectic former rock band project from St. Petersburg, Russia. Founded in 2017, the keyboard player is Ivan Rozmainsky and the guitar and bass player is Vladimir Mikhaylov. Rozmainsky is the keyboard player of the famous Russian experimental avant-garde Roz Vitalis. It is worth mentioning that Roz Vitalis has just released a new album. I think it will be one of the best of the year. Mikhaylov is active in the Enine and Algabas combination. The band members also boast Leonid Perevalov and drummer Yurii Groiser. It is a combination of super musicians. This super combo's first album was last year's "For The Light." This is mainly for instrumental music. Its style spans symphony, psychedelic, space rock, and pioneering areas. The concept of the album is "How to maintain peace of mind under trouble and pressure", and I have to say that the albums in front of what is really in the field are all ah! The music is retro and modern, but highly original. This is similar to Roz Vitalis's style, but it is more beautiful and simple. Although there are some dark and discordant parts of the atmosphere, after all, the main purpose is to seek the peace of the soul, the overall melody. Still happy. In spite of this, I still think that there are some KC's dark atmosphere that are lingering, but the clarinet's addition makes the color of the songs richer and seems to dispel this feeling of destruction. In addition to some symphonic and psychedelic elements, the album also presented avant-garde side, as Roz Vitalis had done before, strange beats and architectural arrangements flooded, and in some places there was even a mechanical sense of electronic music. It was clear It is not committed to revive those classic shakes of the 1970s, but is exploring its own modernization and even post modernization. The previous 10 songs are like anti-rock pieces that combine classical and classical elements. The last 10-minute theme song can be said to have been made by Dacheng. The opening is composed of a combination of dark clarinet and organ keyboard. Illusions, coupled with the heavy drums behind them, seem to be related to the troubles and pressures associated with the theme. This trend evolved into the middle segment when the smart organ occupies a dominant position, and the clarinet sounds become moderate, as if in the corresponding theme. In the heart of peace, there was finally a humorous melody and a good theme song that fully demonstrated the musicians' skill and figurative ability. This last album deserves a four-star rating!
