These boys have promised to get mature, and they are really getting mature now. At first sight you can’t identify the signs, which show their maturing, but you may feel - something has changed in them and something is ripening. Their music has not become more difficult because of that - though getting mature is often accompanied with getting some "weight" – on the contrary, it has become just more precise and clean, but in no way ascetic. In other words, there are practically no extra movements or extra noise here. Besides, the group’s vocalist Valeriy Harchyshyn is getting mature as the author of texts as well. To be more exact, he is becoming deeper. Behind these lyrics we can see a man, not a youth. A young man, but still a man. What difference does it really make? It lies in the following: the first one feels and the second one is inclined to comprehend everything which is felt by him, at that to comprehend not only within his shell, but at different angles. As a matter of fact, one can’t claim that the second is better than the first. You see, he is already different and this particular fact is very important. The change of the quality of a worldview causes the changes in personal manifestations related to the outer world and it is exactly the availability of such changes that evokes interest. Isn’t their lack called degradation? So, as every river, "Druha Rika" is getting bigger, the same way as the sea grows, and for some reason it does not agree to disappear before it meets the sea. And what will happen then? Will it disappear? Or, may be, it will simply change its quality again?
