From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars A free album from these Russian masters of orchestral symphonic prog.

The Christmas tree type of pine tree on the front cover gives the rather wrong impression that this is a Christmas album. It is not and Little Tragedies has slightly shot themselves in the foot with this artwork. The music does have a wintery theme though, but winter can also mean January.... or February. Anyway; nevermind the artwork.

As usual from Little Tragedies, the music is orchestral symphonic prog with masses of woodwinds, keyboards and some guitars. This in addition to the drums and bass. There is no vocals here. The music on this album is like ELP meets a troupe of woodwinds players. Some of the songs here also sounds like those two meets a lost Dream Theater. Yes, there are even some progressive metal tunes on this album. That in addition to the classical music here with a heavy slaint of Russian folk music.

The quality is good throughout. There are no remarkable tracks here though and the music passes by as excellent, non-offensive background sound to some ironing and house cleaning. Not to mention trying to crack the latest crosswords from The Times. This type of music is bordering to muzak in my ears. But it is very much a worthy free download from their homepage. Make up your own mind, please. My mind is a three stars award though.
