5 stars "Lost Symphony" by Karfagen is like an vintage art rock fairytale - something special for those who loves Camel "Snow Goose" and Gryphon "Midnight Mushrumps". It`s an instrumental album that is divided on to three chapters, nearly 22 minutes each. I can clearly imagine it as a sides of a LP. First chapter: "The Frog, the Beast & the Wizard" - starts from lush keyboards - perfect positive intro to a symphonic poem where different characters and landscapes takes you to the fantastic world of adventures. You`ll find eccentric and flashing pieces like "The Cosmic Frog & the Beast" & "Salvatore". Classical Rimsky-Korsakov style "Orgaria" where Antony has painted a wonderful mellow pastoral with the beauty and variety of electric organ and gentle "China Wizard" by talented guitarist Alex Pavlov. "Sylph" has a really catchy tunes - atmospheric and dynamic at the same time. Second chapter: "Mysterious Stories from the Kite Town" (brings me an associations with a Nosov's world-famous child`s book "The Adventures of Dunno and his Friends") centres around epic track "Journey Through the Looking Glass". It`s an art rock jewel - one of my favourite Karfagen tracks - reminds me outstanding epic "Mystery" from the previous album "Solitary Sandpiper Journey". I would like to emphasize the art work and production of the entire cd. So it`s highly recommended symphonic rock statement.
