3 stars Symphonic prog from an Uzbek project which later developed into Fromuz. This is the debut album from a project with in total two albums.

All music here is instrumental with vocals used as instruments. This is one fifty minutes long suite with no letups. The music is a mix of new age, fusion, a lot of Pink Floyd'ish space rock, Russian symph prog and avant-garde. Think Little Tragedies and Karfagen. A bit Fromuz is also present here. There is also a lot of Eastern folk and classical music present here.

The music ebbs and flows throughout with a lot of change of themes along the way. The first part is very Pink Floyd. The final half an hour is much more classical music.

Quality wise, this album is good. There are some great melody lines along this ride and I find this album pleasing, but not great. A good album, nevertheless.

3 stars
