5 stars The title of that cd left me worry because of his first part. I said, is Kotebel are becoming a classical band? But when i listened to samples, i was relieved that it's still the same band, only that they added piano to their sound. Their music is a kind of fusion sound that mix together prog, avant-garde, classical and jazz. All the compositions are top notch with complex parts, but not difficult to get the grip on. The songs are well developed in a very interesting atmosphere, and a attention to the quality of the arrangements and the production are clear on this cd. All instruments including xylophone and saxophone create some beautiful sounds with the rest of the usual rock instruments.

I was touched specifically with " Dance of Shiva" , who starts with techno effects and change in a beautiful atmosphere of a kind of soundtrack, peaceful and intense song coming from a Sergio Leone movie. The use of xylophone and chants are lifting the melody to a higher level.

This is a instant classic cd for me that already enjoy instrumental music, this band don't stop to amaze me with the quality of their music.
