4 stars The band was formed in the summer of 2004 in the city of Tashkent (Uzbekistan, a former USSR republic near Iran and Afghanistan, hence their name). A session guitar player, Vitaly Popeloff, and his friend, a bass player called Andrew Mara-Novik, decided to play music together. This may explain there is no leader in the band. Each composition is born from common efforts. Maybe this is why the compositions sound not only rich, but also complex in their structure. The band explores from jazz rock and fusion to symphonic rock easily within the same composition. Their debut effort, "Audio Diplomacy", was released in early 2007. This is their second opus then. It shows deep King Crimson influences (the "Red" era) and this is a compliment. Tight musicianship, innovation, great guitar parts, energetic tracks, gorgeous sound and cover. The recipe of a masterpiece. So don't overlook this band just because they come from Asia or they are only instrumental! This is pure bliss and they deserve wide attention. Brilliant!
