5 stars This album caught me off-guard. I really did not expect a debut album with almost no recognition to become one of my favorite albums of 2020.

Fables For Robots is the debut album by Mister Robot, a one-man project from Russia. The first notable thing is that this album has the typical Mike Oldfield/Thick As A Brick album structure, one 40-Minute title track divided in two parts. It definitely has strong jazz influence, specially in the solos, and it also has Gazpacho influence in the reflective, atmospheric sections.

The first part is possibly my favorite, it sets up the theme for the whole album as well as some beautiful verses and keyboard solo-ing that will definitely keep you entertained.

The second part features amazing solos and a small Russian-Rap section around minute 9-10 that I like more that I should, followed by yet another beautiful melody that will be stuck in your head for days! Finally near the end the first part gets reprised.

This album has almost no weaknesses, but probably my biggest problem with it is that it stays around the same ideas for the whole album, some variations would have been great. Overall a very strong album, and I really hope his upcoming music stays around the same type of genre. Very close to four stars, but I decided to give it five because I like every second in this album.
