5 stars With their new album (the first one within the Compassionizer project) Ivan Rozmainsky and his team continue to explore new realms of the musical reality. It is an exploration in the proper sense of the word because as typical for this artist even within one composition he rarely gets stuck in one motif even happily found but always boldly proceeds his way through the limitless space of musical associations and reflections. The Whole Creation Travaileth in Pain Together, one of the best works of the album, with its feel of disturbing suspense and oriental touches inventively created by the rubab and doira opens both the album and this twisted adventure as quite consistent with its title. May be my favorite of the whole collection is 1907 with its the noble and persistent ardor and beautiful baroqueness of the melody. The music of the whole album combines fluidity and precision in expressing the richness of human moods and emotions, and by the way it is why I can easily imagine many of these compositions as a great accompanying melody for an art-house movie. It is definitely a big success of Ivan and the team and a next important step in their musical evolution.
