5 stars "Viam supervadet vadens", so I want to say about the new creation of the group, Roz Vitalis. This is a breakthrough, finalized and the qualitative fruit of this team. The team presented by the team today can rightly be assessed as one of the most powerful, full-fledged and conceptual works. Each composition is like a graph of emotions, feelings, complex schemes and patterns of interaction with the surrounding world. The opener of the album "Someone Passed Over" revealing the veil of the future line of sound, gives a hint that atmospheric music awaits you, with meaningful musical transitions from gloomy, exciting to light, unconstrained. A clear construction of different-timbral compositions, replacing each other, does not allow us to go into melancholy, but rather creates a special mood. The use of additional instruments (violin, cello, viola, bass clarinet), which are not included in the basic composition, is not a new phenomenon for the group, but fills the album with fresh components, showing different faces of the material presented. Periodic solo strings, wind and key moments fill a certain niche in certain places of the compositions and carefully accent the listener's attention. In the course of the album, the hand of the master, the art director of the collective, makes itself felt, recalling the corporate style of the group. Well, and where without lyrical key moments? "Passing on the Line", "Disturbed by Jungle" deservedly take their place in the middle of the album. It is noted "Jungle Waltz" a kind of exciting flamenco. This decoration design of the album not only softens the heavy notes, but also embellishes it. Especially the composition "Thou Shalt Tread Upon the Lion and Adder" stands out. A holistic and capacitive product. A mixture of interlacing of musical threads connected at the end into a single tangle. In general, the album showed that the group Roz Vitalis can go beyond its stylistics, try new and develop, reveal its potential. Want to think about the essential, take time to listen to "The Hidden Man of the Heart".
