5 stars Once I said many of melodies created by this talented team can act as a perfect soundtrack to a movie. I would say this album is a new stage in the artistic development of Ivan and his peers because any theme in this work IS a movie with real plot twists, suspense moments, climaxes, and endings, happy or not. All the themes are inventive, expressive, and I would highly visual. Using only the power of the sound Ivan literally paints a dynamic series of pictures (always very personal and subjective of course) like in cartoons. By its free flow of an artist's thought and impetuous and continuous change of surrealistic images this collection looks like a third season of Shivering Truth by Vernon Chapman expressed in the language of music, though more diverse in its moods and genres. Every theme is like a story. It can a fairy tale like I need you to help, or a ballad like Narrow in the Road, or sometimes even a detailed documentary, though full of cry and tragedy, like Kramatorsk. And every one is a real gem and masterpiece. A great deal of effort is felt in every component of this work. One of the best if not the best album of Ivan and his team. My congratulations!
