4 stars First Jaga Jazzist release on major label. Excellent melodic and atmospheric music combining jazz elements with relaxed electronics. Whenever the result sound is somewhere in between of two genres, I believe this music could please jazz lovers and electronics lounge fans both.

Songs are very different, perfectly arranged, and in different places accents vary from pleasant house/lounge electronics to atmospheric jazz. Possibly, some songs are a bit too "lounge-oriented", but the album in common is different and pleasant.

I believe one of main strong point there ,beside of melodies, is attractive combination of soft electronic beats and sounds with "true" acoustic jazzy elements. Still not full-bodied and matured as later works, this album contains some excellent rhythms and generally is less polished, then what will come later.

Includes beautiful composition, dedicated to my home country (recorded soon after they visited it with live show).

Interesting and competent work, not less than 3,5.
