4 stars The Russian outfit LOST WORLD BAND started out as a trio under the slightly shorter moniker Lost World back in 1990, and released their initial effort "Trajectories" in 2003, followed by "Awakening of the Elements" in 2006. Since then they have added a fourth member to their line-up, added the Band description to their collective name, and in the fall of 2009 they released their third production, "Sound Source," on the French label Musea Records, an album two years in the making.

"Sound Source" is a solid production and should be of general interest to those who like adventurous instrumental art rock, incorporating elements from folk music and classical symphonic compositions. And while there is an emphasis on strong melodies and harmonies throughout, this quartet isn't afraid to venture into realms demanding a higher degree of compositional sophistication either. Fans of bands like Jethro Tull and Kansas will arguably be ones who'll find this material most familiar on initial inspection, but the intricate musical manoeuvres of this band and the width and variety of musical expressions guarantee them finding an audience well beyond the realms of these examples.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
