4 stars Very nice jazzy prog--often sounding like Pat Metheny, sometimes like Mike Post television themes, sometimes like Strunz & Farrah world music, always amazingly melodic and with crystal clear production. The keyboardist, Kalugin, is definitely the show here but all collaborators are good. Amazingly, some of Kalugin's 'keyboards' sound like real woodwinds! (Are they?) And please tell me that's a real accordian! With computer generated music these days it's hard to tell. Anyway, congrats for a imminently listenable and beautiful 'symphony.' Your music will endure! The album is so new to me that I'm not ready to rate it a five star masterpiece but I'm hard pressed to justify why it's not. It is virtually flawless--except that some will miss the vocal/lyrics of this collection of instrumental songs. And some will not like the absence of metal power chords.
