3 stars The distinctive tract of this album is that it can be split in two parts: the good and the bad.

The good consists in the instrumental tracks that are still improving, while the bad is in all the parts sang by Senmuth.

His usual distorted voice is, more than on other albums, obscuring the music. An example is Pokromke Dush", the 6th track whose instrumental part is very good but when he sings is irritating.

This doesn't happen when Ana Cephal sings on "Brain Hunter". I hope Senmuth has realized that distorted voices can enhance a song but they are not always the best way to vehiculate a message.

There are some highlights in this album: in particular "Rip", "Alternative Vision" (the instrumental part and the guitar riff), "Tere Liye" and "Вспыхнула и Погасла".

The last two tracks are not bad, but the melodic line is a bit trivial. With a 4/4 tempo they could be transformed into disco-house songs. The closure has something of the "Tatu" (if the pop duo name is correctly spelled). This is the first Senmuth's song that I could consider "commercial".

So it's not a totally bad album, but the usual 3 stars are now rounded up.

octopus-4 | 3/5 |
