4 stars It may be sounds strange, but this album, released in Russia only, is much better, than Two Siberians next, international release "Out Of Nowhere", recorded and released in US with big team of fusion known musicians.

And I know, why. "Out Of Nowhere" was released as commercial release ( and because of that supported with some international well-known names). And main problem was label tried not to present interesting musicians, but to sale exotic product. Even their name are oriented in exotica fans ( Two Siberians name is using for international market only, in home country they are known as White Fort). As a result, almost all compositions of "Out Of Nowhere" are modern form of Russian folk song, or original composition with heavy Russian folk influence. Something between vodka and matrioshkas, kitsch for foreigners. And even participating of good fusion guest musicians didn't help.

This album, Two Kings, is good record for domestic market. So, no matrioshkas, no vodka, just interesting acoustic jazz fusion with strong classic elements. The only minus of this album is there are just duo ( violin+ guitar), so music is quite specific. I think nearest example of similar music is McLauglin/Dimeola/De Lucia trio acoustic albums. If you like them, I believe this album will be interesting for you. I believe adding of rhythm section and some additional instruments could make this album almost great. But even as it is "Two Kings" are interesting enough for acoustic strings jazz fusion lovers. And for sure, much more better entry work.

Strong 3,5
