4 stars "Glimpses from the Story of Mr Bogd" really? You better produce with a title like that. Fear not, we have a little shiny gem here. Let's clear away the mud and see what we've got. Chichikov kicks off with a pleasing acoustic folk intro before driving off with foot tapping head nodding rhythm. If my knees weren't shot I'd be bopping. Tilly comes into view with a pleasingly stuttering waltz - he leads into the Hall of Mirrors at the Fairground. The three heads arrive with vocals and acoustic with an eastern vibe. The mice (9 min): apparently nobody cares. Well, we have forest paths spear wielding maidens, paths to hell ... and luckily a god wakes to help the humble mice (both mice and forest are saved - woohoo) Hmm. We have all the musical chops and changes, we are familiar with in prog and it ends with a cliched return to the acoustic & vocal and thunder rumbling in the background. It's not bad, but it's not great. So what promised to be a diamond turned out to be a quartz. A nice quartz but not an essential part of the collection. If The Mice had nailed it this would have been a 5* contender. As it is it's still an excellent addition to any collection.

I keep playing Chichikov as a pick me up. It's great.
