3 stars Heavy fusion band from Uzbekistan - not very usual, isn't it? But don't you expect too much exotic Central Asian influences there. Band is playing technical heavy fusion, influenced by Planet X or LTE. But not at the same level of virtuosity.

Sound is well balanced, guitar solos are competent playing in metal or jazz fusion key, drummer is good in energetic passages and jazzy breaks as well. No problems with keyboards and bass. Some songs have melodic parts, all music is complex enough and professionally recorded.

The problem for me, there is not soul in this sound. Cold math rock'n'fusion? Few Eastern touches are far not enough just to input soul or give own face to this very professional music.

Some good musicianship is there mixed with overpowered sound and lack of musical value.Not a bad album, should be interesting for lovers of instrumental rock.

Almost 3.
