4 stars This music is absolutely (well, I long thought about proper word and finally decided to say just) crazy. Old swing orchestra with Latin rhythms, cabaret like (The Dear Hunter combined with heavy prog sounding), absolutely fast and insane combination, which somehow works. Really, I don't know how can all these ingredients exist one next to another, work together and sound so well (reminding me System of a Down at times, with Serj's emotive and humorous, mocking style (all this stuff connected with evening dress and cylinders - or top hats if you wish). There is also waltz rhythm sometimes, so beware those who love it in rock music. Did I say rock ? I meant rock / metal, I'm not sure which of them is majority, perhaps metal, but they're changing sides regularly. Maybe it's just me, maybe I'm hearing ghosts, but I can see Russian influence here, these old folklore songs from Russian culture heritage. Just very little, but it's here.

4(-) for playful music. Not masterpiece, but very good. Unfortunately, can be quite boring after repeated listening, but it depends on current mood of course.
