Prog Reviewer
5 stars Once again we are meeting the Classic of Russian Art Rock.Incomparable band,which had no equal ones in Soviet times in both music and stage show sides,managed to release the archive of early recordings only after splitting up - sad,indeed?Remastered but no way RE- RECORDED material is astonishing - just take a listen to nervous "Ireland,Olster"(5th track),wonderful ballad "Rain"(2nd track) or "Martian Chronicles" epic divided into two separate songs(tracks 9 & 10).Such semi-epics like "2000 Years"(3rd),"An Old Ballad"(12th) and "The Ship"(13th) show band's mature professionaliosm and unquestionable genius of Alexandr Sitkovetsky,lead composer and guitar player.Oh boy,I don't want the Legend die!!!I hope,the immense success of Reunion Tour in 2005 (just give a spin to DVD,which contains the last show of the tour!) shall make the guys think of reunion to make an album!!!Long Live Russian Prog!!!
