4 stars The sticker on the cover says it's in UK and KANSAS vein.Well, that's true for the opening hymnesque title track...but later it becomes obvious that CRIMSON's most Symphonic years serve as the main inspiration.

LOST WORLD's second album, far better than too much songy-oriented debut, offers a high-class instrumental Prog in TALISMA's vein - short (not longer than 7 minutes) but varied and flawlessly played/arranged tracks. The best ones here are beautiful "Infinity Street" in very TULLesque vein, fiery "Simoom" and "Collision of the Elements", quirky and atonal theme. "Schostoccata" is an Schostakovitch's piece adaptation, and it sounds very natural - in very LOST WORLD's vein. Some tracks like "Scenery with Guitar" (which sounds VERY like lost CRIMSO soundscape from 80s!!!) or second part of "States of Mind" offer more peaceful and even mellow mood. Being professionally performed and recorded, "Awakening of the Elements" can serve as a paragon of RUSSIAN PROG - inspired by Symphonic Classics, written with great melodic gift and avalaible world-wide through MUSEA label ;)

If you like Symphonic bands like LITTLE TRAGEDIES, UK, early KING CRIMSON and Prog inspired by traditions of Symphonic Melos like AFTER CRYING or QUATERNA REQUIEM, this one is definetely for you.Highly recommended for all Art/Symphonic maniacs!!!
