5 stars

This is my 1st review ever on this website, I just don't like to write reviews even though I listen to an enormous amount of albums all the time (about 500 a year!) 2017 is shaping up to be the very best prog year ever at least for me, case and point I gave this year to 40 albums 5 stars (I have a list) and here is the latest 5 stars album review!

I came across this amazing band from the Ukraine about couple of month ago when someone brought to my attention this band and their 1st album from 2009 called "Elehia" I listened to few tracks on YouTube and was stunned, on this web site they got 13 ratings and 6 of them are 5 stars, how come more people didn't hear about this amazing band, including myself? I ordered the CD "Elehia" and was blown away by the whole album!

Fast forward to the new album "Son" arriving November 17th, I contacted the band and received a copy from them and this is going to blow your minds away... The album has been mixed by Bruce Soord, It's 72 minutes of complex, hauntingly beautiful, poetic rock music with lush string arrangements and songs perfected over a decade! 15 musicians including a string quartet, 10 sound engineers, 200 hours of recording in 7 different studios and more than 8 years since the debut album. These are pretty unusual numbers for the Ukrainian music scene, but it barely scratches the surface of how much effort, sacrifice and love for progressive music it took for Obiymy Doschu to finish their epic second album "Son" ("Dream").

There are 3 instrumental songs (5,7,10) I gave all the songs 5 stars other than (6,10,11) 4 stars only, judge yourself. If you don't try and listen to this band, you are missing a wonderful experience, 2 albums... both 5 stars how can you go wrong? the lyrics are in Ukrainian so if you don't understand the words (I don't) the music will compensate you 10 times fold! A VERY HIGH 5 STAR ALBUM!!!
