3 stars The first ever compositions from this Russian band.

The mainman in Little Tragedies, Gennady Ilyin, has a degree in music from a Russian university and is classically trained. That is pretty evident here and on all their albums. Little Tragedies comes into progressive rock from the classical side of scene. Well, approaches progressive rock, that is. Rock, this is not.

What we get here is cascades upon cascades upon cascades of church organs and other tangents. It is like sitting in a cathedral and listening to the organist there playing a symphony. This kind of symphonies. Unfortunate for me, I am sitting in a half decent office and is staring at this monitor. I wish I was in a cathedral though because that would had enhanced this experience/piece of music x amount of times.

The music itself is good. Most of it is brooding passages and melody lines which captures the subjects brilliantly. There are some lack of good melody lines. But I am coming back to this cathedral thing where this music should be enjoyed and not in a grubby office in the middle of nowhere. This is music to be experienced. Not to be listened to. Fetch me a cathedral and I will give this a four star rating. Without it; three stars will have to do.

3 stars
