5 stars "As Smoke is Driven Away" is an album with its roots in Indian meditations and branching out into ambient. The mini-album consists of one 20-minute long composition, alternately changing with various kinds of meditations, while maintaining a gloomy and intense coloring. An amazing interweaving of clarinet, synthesizers and recognizable keyboards by the leader of the project Ivan Rozmainsky, which have long become the hallmark of his bands. The general, rather uncharacteristic gloominess of the music is manifested here with might and main with its dark apocalyptic landscapes, replacing one passage after another. The entire viscous and dense sound palette is made at the highest level, which will not leave indifferent even those who are not ardent adherents of the genre. And for fans, this is another must have masterpiece for a collection, not to mention a clear and interesting cover. The music itself will tell the rest, since it is amazing.
