3 stars Russian neo-folk prog band, based in Israel. Nice acoustic sound, very characteristic for Russian alternative rock of the time atmosphere, no Middle East or klezmer influented at all.

They sing in Russian, so not everyone can understand lyrics, but in fact it is not a big problem. Not because their lyrics are of the low level, not at all, but in fact all the songs have similar dreamy and psychedelic poetry, which doesn't change heavily your impression from the music.

Again, both sound and lyrics are very symptomatic for many Russian alternative bands from 90-s, mixing neo-folk, acoustic musicianship and songs with lyrics, bringing you out off real life problems (there were a lot of them in Russia of 90-s, believe me!).

So, even if songs musically sound often too much similar all album long, acoustic sound is nice and musicianship level is good. I don't believe they could be interesting for wide range of listeners, but some interested in quality Russian neo-folk rock could find many pleasant moments when listening this album.
