3 stars In 1990 three Russian students, Vasiliy Soloviov , Alexandr Akimov and Andrey Didorenko decided to form a band under the name of Lost World.They put up numerous shows in Art and Music colleges and in 1995 they also recruited singer Alexei Rybakov.The band recorded seven albums and over 30 CD-R's, changing hands only in underground circles, however the seeds of their efforts finally led to the birth of their first official work in 2003, when Russian label Boheme Music released the debut ''Trajectories''.

Heavily influenced by Classical, Avant-Garde and Chamber Music and with the other foot grounded in the complex rock forms of KING CRIMSON, Lost World played an energetic Progressive/Art Rock with huge doses of energy and series of dark atmospheres, divided in 14 short tracks.Most of them have a very raw sound, reminiscent of ANKH, with violin and flutes in evidence producing sharp rhythms and atonal soundscapes.Another mass of tracks has an intense Chamber Music/Avant-Garde feeling, led by flutes, dissonant structures and deep sound/electronic effects.A few of them contain also vocals and belong definitely on the lighter side of Art Rock, sounding like smooth orchestral ballads full of string sections and delicate flute parts.Among these stylings the listener will also detect a light Post-Rock influence, especially when guitars take over.Maybe the lack of melodies makes this one a pretty obscure listening, but Lost World could definitely come up with series of strange yet attractive atmospheres created by the instrumental parts.

Weird mix of Chamber Music with Heavy Rock and light Post-Rock, that deserves plenty of careful listenings to be appreciated.''Trajectories'' is a recommended album, among the ones that walk on the path of future regarding Progressive Rock music.
