4 stars The idea behind the Russian project GROUP 309 was conceived in 2007, when composer Pishchulov discovered the poetry of writer Dasha Yashenko and desired to give it a fitting musical representation. Musicians sharing his musical vision were assembled and songs created. In March 2009 the project was ready to be realized, and in 2010 it was finalized as the Russian label MALS Records decided to release the album.

Those who prefer their art rock to be of a gentle, melodic nature featuring nods in the direction of pop music will most likely find the symphonic-inspired material explored on Group 309's debut effort "Dreams of Sea" to be of interest. There's a distinct emphasis on harmonic melodies and gentle moods that might alienate those accustomed to and desiring music of a more adventurous nature in general, and the all-Russian lead vocals might limit the commercial potential somewhat too. Other than that, this is a fine release of its kind.
