Esthetic Education. Werewolf.

Well, the second album had finally been released – we had to expect for that for practically two and a half years. Though, this time was not really empty – Esthetic Education had time to release a maxi-single and a concert album. However, they waited for a new studio work impatiently – the group at the first attempt became a bright, unordinary phenomenon on Ukrainian scene. Actually, no global changes have happened here, music by Esthetic Education remains special indeed. And – the group continues to justify its name. It easily combines the somewhat nervous manner of indie rock with the best displays of brit-pop, with cool emotionality of Scandinavian underground. However, these are nothing but relative definitions. Speaking otherwise, light, graceful melodiousness plus furious onslaught – elegance and, at the same time, enormous tension of all forces. In this music, there are a few layers, varied flows at once. And they sometimes intersect, fight – and then the sounding of fighting takes in all other sounds. And sometimes – they simply flow parallel and transparent, and then it is possible to see several distances deeper. As well as human soul – sometimes turbid, and sometimes clear. But, in any case, live. At least – while it is not indifferent.

This group represents Ukrainian rock'n'roll music of today. It is popular in Ukraine and in Russia by its drive music, strong, unusual vocal, own style. This is their second album. Their style has slightly changed according to modern music tendencies.

Stoned Jesus. Seven Thunders Roar. /digi-pack/.

This is something new, born due to deep immersion into the old – perhaps, that is why the press release states: "Stoned Jesus play vintage rock in the best tradition of the '70s, inspired not only by heavy blues, early progressive and classical psychedelics, but even grunge, stoner and post-hardcore of the '90s"...

I would call this music hard blues – but do not get surprised when you hear in it surprisingly transparent trip-hop mood. It would seem that these both styles could hardly be called optimistic. Conditional minus. But, as it happens from time to time, minus to minus has given us an unexpected, but so warm, intimate plu...

Esthetic Education. Leave Us Alone.

From the very beginning these people promised that they would compose a high-quality European music, and to my mind it is exactly the thing they are busy with at the moment. This maxi-single, I think, is another confirmation of this fact.

Если честно, купил альбом просто для коллекции...Почему то в последнее время никто из бывшего ОЭ не вдохновляет. Как всегда отличная работа, но почему то не захватывает...в качестве фона - отличный вариант
