4 stars "Wordless" is an ingenius title for an all-instrumental album isn't it. These four Russians have come up with a real gem here with their twin lead guitars, bass and drums. We have Oleg adding effects, keyboards and flute along with two other guests playing trumpet and trombone on one track. By the way I understand Oleg is now the fifth member of the band which I think was a great move.

We get a beat after a minute on "Invisibly Join" as relaxed guitar joins in then a full sound. Nice.This really sounds fantastic. Some brief angular guitar before 3 1/2 minutes then it settles before kicking back in after 4 minutes with a Post-Rock flavour.Too much ! "Corridor" opens with atmosphere as guitar, bass and drums come in around a minute. A full sound follows.This sounds incredible. More aggressive guitar after 4 minutes. "From Where The Wind Blows" features intricate sounds and the bass is prominant.The tempo picks up and check out the drumming. Only the wind is blowing after 6 1/2 minutes to end it. Cool.

"888" opens with guitar then it turns fuller quickly with guitar out front. "Autumn Velvet" is kind of jazzy with those guest horns. Guitar leads after 1 1/2 minutes then the horns return to lead before 4 minutes to end it. "Runnn" opens with some atmosphere then it kicks in hard at 1 1/2 minutes. Some great bass here. "Mensura Zoili" has a good heavy sound to it. Some angular guitar around 4 minutes. "Chinese Butterfly" opens with atmosphere galore. Bass before 3 minutes then the drums and intricate guitar join in. An Oriental flavour here. Electric guitar takes the lead around 5 minutes. Flute comes in when it settles. Back to the Oriental vibe 8 1/2 minutes in. Atmoshere like the intro is back 10 minutes in.

I like this album a lot, these guys play as a band and offer up some interesting pieces.
