5 stars Leaded by one the finest prog drummer ever (Rishad Shafi) Gunesh Ensemble is maybe the greatest band from ex-URSS. They are exactly from Turkmenistan and in a nutshell they are a central asian sounding progressive horn rock/fusion group or maybe better a little orchestra. But Gunesh are better than that may imply. Looking at the Earth is their second album and surely the most progressive and best one. The album is a perfect mix of so many defferents ingrendients coming from western and oriental music: trippy Caucasus mountain music, Muslim prayer calls, psychedelia, hot fusion, Vietnamese traditional music, etc.. The unexpectedly beautiful arrangements appeared,and polirhythmic compositions with odd measure were further developed thematically. This is surely a must have for every prog lovers, maybe 5 stars is little bit too much, but if we contestualize it in the geographical area and in the history period we can justify the maximum vote
