5 stars This 46-minute release is not only a return to the Disen Gage prog-rock style, typical for the first four albums of the band (2004 - 2016), and not only a reminder that one of the best instrumental Russian ensembles continues to exist, although it does not play gigs.

'The Big Adventure' is one of the best releases in the entire 20-year history of this group. It is better than the two previous albums in the ambient / avant-garde style. Moreover, it is better than the very good 2016 'Snapshots' album which was based on the 'jam approach' (like the second album titled 'Libertage' (2006)). On the contrary, the newest release is characterized by a rigorous construction of compositions. In this aspect, it comes close to such landmark releases as 'The Screw-Loose Entertainment' (2004) and '... the Reverse May Be True' (2008). Each of the eight compositions of the album impresses with elaborate arrangements and thematic development, and each of them catches!

The best tracks are Chaos Point, Selfish Tango, Carnival Escape ' all these creatures are characterized by an unpredictable development and sharp changes in musical pictures. These compositions embody in the best possible way the main "principle" of the album: "from irony to sudden insights, from caustic irony to sudden grim frankness".

I would like to congratulate the group Disen Gage with undoubted creative success! The artistic level of her new album 'The Big Adventure' can be comparable with the level of the aforementioned '... the Reverse May Be True' release, which is deservedly considered as the 'essential highlight' of the band. 'The Bid Adventure' is one of the Albums of the Year.
