Review by Prog-jester
3 stars I have to agree with Alexander (Paper Champion) here: SILENCE KIT's debut is no way an essential record. It gained cult status in Russian underground, and I believe it was a huge breakthrough back in 2002, but now whom would you surprise with music of that kind? ;)

Each track here is of different nature, even genre. 'Transmiss to Fades' is 5-min long ambient intro. 'Twenty Eight + Two' bears some shoegaze influences, but this is mostly brit-pop/art-rock thing. 'Francesca White' is energetic post-grunge radiohit (though I doubt SK would ever get a spot on radio, even with this song). 'Lunik', a shoegaze/dream-pop ballad, flows into instrumental 'Lunik: Ceremony', which is definitely first Post-Rock track here ;) 'Soul Departure' is another alternative tune, and closing 14-min long epic 'Objects in the Mirror...' is pure Post-Rock, with some obvious Prog hints here and there.

More than a half of the album was available free on Russian 'FreeMusic' site legally, and some tracks are still streamable both on band's MySpace and LastFM, but if you want to get the real SILENCE KIT, begin with 'Pieonear'. This is the thing to tear you apart! As for eponymous debut, it's good but definitely non-essential record, recommended for collectors and those who became interested after reading this all...thanks for reading, by the way!
