Albums by Olga Bogomolets have always stood out due to their quiet beauty, but this time the new disc is a step forward as well. Previous works, you should agree, were close to usual bard singing – in the post-Soviet understanding of this word. The album "Two of Us" is the song of a bard that intersects with romance and blues. It means, clear thing, that music here is more complicated, multicolored than guitar or piano accompaniment. But, at the same time, this music is so transparent, almost unnoticeable – but not empty – that you even not at once pay attention to it. It does not admire itself in a mirror – but perfectly supports both the singing, and lyrics, correctly underlines accents, makes the moods and hints more refined. The important role, but – the music stays a little bit in the shadow. Thus, the leading role in the album still belongs not to the notes, but to the words. However, it is not surprising – because poems of, say, Lina Kostenko simply cannot be heard inattentively. And they were evidently selected not casually. Add here a few poems by Igor Zhuk, Iryna Zhylenko, Mykola Vingranovsky and by Olga Bogomolets herself – it is clear that the lyrics here cannot be just a rhymed background. It is beautiful – both in form, and in contents.
