Olexandr Ihnatusha. Bily vovk. /digi-pack/. (White Wolve)

It is very pleasant. And also a bit nostalgic, but once again - it has a pleasant content. The explanation may be found in the fact that Oleksandr Ihnatusha is a producer. At a certain moment it seems as if you were listening not to a simple musical album, but to a collection of songs from films. From old and kind films about love, striving, laugh and tears, nonsense and serious questions of life. About the truth of our life – not that truth, which one can find in papers or TV news, but the truth, which one can find in the eyes of a smiling person. Sometimes this person is five years old, sometimes – seventeen, sometimes – as much as usual people do not live. At another moment it reminds the songs of bards – not those who live in the British Isles, but those who live in post-Soviet countries. After that it seems as if you had opened a music box which has been found in the thickets of adult belongings – in it melodies and lyrics have been hidden, and very often it happens that adults lack them. The next moment you understand that the actors who perform in this theatre have such expressive faces that they need no masks or make-up. May be, they play parts. Or may be those parts play them. Everything is honest. Then it becomes cosy.

Audio cassette/ ..He is a successor of a certain art tradition, a performer with his own face and style. With a nice face and a clear style.

Ihor Bilyi. Ya – ne lyalka. /digi-pack/. (I Am Not a Puppet)

Actually, this is the author's album – Igor Bily is the author of all the lyrics, and he did not organize any band to that end. All the songs are for two guitars. Concise, clear, and simple enough. However, the key emphasis is still on the lyrics – it is worth listening, hearing, and understanding. Attentive songs are always relevant.

Volodymyr Shynkaruk. Shestystrunnyy doshch. Vam, molodym... (Six-String Rain. For you, the young...)

...if the inner world of a person is multidimensional – it is possible to wander in these dimensions infinitely, and about each of them it is possible to tell some story. Volodymyr Shynkaruk seems to have in store an infinite number of such histories – and he knows how to tell them honestly, deeply, interestingly. So that at a certain instant his stories become – your own.

Volodymyr Shynkaruk. Perekoty-nebo. (TumbleSky)

This seems to be that very bardic song, although in the sounding there is now more transparent, delicate sense, which is conveyed not with words, but exactly with music. But at the same time, the word has not become less significant. As it should be when the issue is intelligent, thought over, internally experienced texts, not just rhymed lines of certain meters.

Eduard Drach. Nebo Ukrajiny.

Edward Drach appeals to the Kyivska Rus history either in strict historical or at a poetic foreshortening at least in this album. Actually, that is what he us a poet for. More precisely - the bard.

Serhij Moroz. Jarij, Dushe...

Vasyl Stus is one of those poets who are known to everybody who knows at least something about Ukrainian poetry. That’s why it is not a surprise to anyone that from time to time musicians of quite different styles and trends turn to his literary heritage...

Совершенно случайно по проводному радио года три назад услышал презентацию альбома "Белый волк" и чуть не упал со стула. Было так неожиданно и свежо, как давно не было. Настоящее творческое потрясение. Спасибо за талант. Удачи!

Надзвичайно чудовий альбом - не просто окремі пісні, але саме поєднання поезії з піснями створює надзвичайно інтимну інтонацію всього диска від початку до кінця. Кожна мелодія індивідуальна, підібрані інструменти створюють тривимірне сприйняття окремого твору; пісні подані як вистави.

З перших речей альбому відчуваєш, як піднімається настрій. Пісні одразу беруть за душу щирістю тексту і виконання, дуже приємним аранжуванням. Тішуся, що маю цей альбом. Дякую його творцям.

Олександр Ігнатуша просто прекрасний. Прекрасний і дуже самобутній.
Дуже жаль, що лише єдиний альбом. Це взірець того, як потрібно робити
справжню, якісну музику. Дай Боже сил і наснаги на наступні звершення!

В першу чергу раджу слухати поціновувачам поетичного Слова. Прекрасний зразок авторської пісні, хай, навіть, не під "акустичку"- старі барди зрозуміють, про що мова... Чекатиму нових дисків! До речі, привіт авторові від старої знайомої на ім`я Юля, з якою колись зустричалися у Сергія Петровича Московченко

The scent of Bulgarian tobacco...

This is some album, music of the utmost finesse is about the simplest way to describe it although the only thing that really does this album justice is to listen to it. While listening I get the feeling I am in some smoky, elegant, Ukrainian jazz club where the best in vocal talents, poets, singer-songwriters, film directors are all gathered. ( ...last but not least by all means the omnipresent bevy of Ukrainian beauties!). His style reminds me of the great traditions of the French bard Georges Brassens and of the Russian Alexander Rosenbaum but the music has so much originality that it doesnt quite fit both of those, Ihnatusha does in my modest opinion at least deserve to be in the same league as those two. His performances on theis album convey the same depth of meaning as Brassens and Rosenbaum. The songs are rare in that they are supremely catchy and have lyrics that will get you poring over their meaning for years, well they are poems after all and what masterpieces they are...( my favourite so far is Drach's one about the birds and the letters )

The album has everything, great vocals, exquisite lyrics, more please from this artist! One cd is not enough.
