I had high hopes for Antony Kalugin and Karfagen after their promising first CD "Continium". It had some excellent instrumental works but suffered to my ears by being a bit too "new age", particularly with the drum sound and some of the synths. So, what to make of the follow-up?

Well, once again the artwork is excellent and, with 16 tracks totalling 65 minutes, you certainly get your money's worth but there's no real sign of progression here. It's all a bit too much like background music and there are no real standout tracks like "Marvelous Dance" on the previous CD. Again, it's nearly all instrumental, based around Antony's excellent keyboards skills, and there are some nice touches on the guitar. A real drummer is credited but the drums still sound too much like a machine.

If you liked the first CD then you will probably like this, but I was hoping for better things.
