5 stars The long-awaited "isolation" single from St. Petersburg "Roz Vitalis" CROWN, like Univers Zero that has risen from the Leningrad swamps, has taken Robert Fripp into its arms. Catchy, growling, sometimes heavy and broken. These are the general points of this great recording. It seems that the musicians have finally completed their "phase transition" and before us is a fully formed dark rock music with all the flavors of instruments and moves possible. The single starts off powerfully and not even in the spirit of the classic Roz Vitalis, I would even say strikingly! But this is not surprising given the general recording concept. The style has become more "compact" but no less meaningful, and even more integral than it was before. In secret, I hope that further recordings will be completely in this vein, although this is only my subjective opinion. And yes, these guys are very good using guitar riffs; such riffs were practically not observed before. The second composition titled "Beautifulness" is the classic Roz Vitalis as it is! Namely: airy, barely tangible, beautiful and performed with an academic crystalline - as befits real thinkers and virtuosos from non-trivial music. It is as if several different things performed at the same time in it, and each time you hear one or another musical canvas, depending on your mood. In general, this rather short single is very compact, but capaciously reflects both the best classical features of the group and the rise to new dark peaks that have not yet been explored. In addition, the front-cover for this unprecedented opus was made by your humble servant, author of this review.
