Review by Bob Greece
PROG REVIEWER
5 stars I have not written any reviews for a long time but I am writing this one as this album is my favourite prog release of 2009 and I want to share it with you all and promote this album a bit - it doesn't have any reviews yet. The abum is available for free download from the Little Tragedies website. Little Tragedies are a Russian band and usually sing in Russian, which might be a problem for some listeners but in the case of this album, there will be no such problem as it is totally instrumental. The album is also a Christmas album. However, as there are no lyrics and no traditional Christmas tunes, it is an album that you can listen to throughout the year. If the cover art were changed, you could be forgiven for thinking that it is not a Christmas album at all. In terms of music, it is difficult to pick out favourite tracks as they do sound quite similar to each other. The music is mainly quite melodic and cheerful although it does stray towards fusion territories sometimes (tracks 1, 8 and 14) but this is quite rare. For those of you who like harder-edged prog, you might prefer to start with these tracks. The main feeling I have when listening to album is that it really is magic - it makes you feel that you are going to a magic shop - or even a magic funfair. I am reminded of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker sometimes by the tunes. So give this album a try if you want to be transported to a magic place - you do don't you?

3 stars A free album from these Russian masters of orchestral symphonic prog. The Christmas tree type of pine tree on the front cover gives the rather wrong impression that this is a Christmas album. It is not and Little Tragedies has slightly shot themselves in the foot with this artwork. The music ... (read more)

5 stars Free for downloading full album ? Great ! I came across their music by Prog Archives' random mp3 play with checking some articles, and I heard beautiful guitars. I thought it is a song of The Enid which I didn't know till then, so I checked the name and player of the music, and I found that t ... (read more)
