Vopli Vidopliassova. Himn-Slaven Ukrajiny. (CD+DVD). /digi-pack/. (Hymn-Glorification of Ukraine)
About a year ago Oleg Skrypka had the idea of recording the national hymn of Ukraine and releasing it on a disc. At that the motivations were both patriotic ones and, predominantly, rock musicians' professional curiosity how the hymn will sound in rock arrangement. Therefore, in fact, motivated by the most honest and best displays of their own selves, the guys undertook performance of the hymn of Ukraine. By the way, it should be noted that the need for updating the first line of the text has long already been soaring among Ukrainians, emphasizing above all positive and optimistic aspects of things. However, VV did not intend to undertake the absolute role of changing the habitual and legalized word, that is why they announced an all-Ukraine competition for the text of glorification among the Ukrainian people. It is probably easier to count the number of poems created by most prominent poets of the world than to specify the number of variations that people started sending to the mailbox of "Vopli Vidoplyasove" web site. And the guys, not to waste time, started the laborious work compilation of the best lines, and whether they succeeded or not it is up to the audience to judge, because a surprisingly beautiful folk text of the hymn has appeared. And, as a result, in order for that all persons interested could feel full involvement into such an important mission, Oleg Skrypka suggested releasing a karaoke disc, at that everybody can either listen VV's version of the original hymn of Ukraine, or learn the words to the end, or try recreating the melody, or create their own text, or just alleviate their civil dignity at singing the main song of Ukraine with the new, indisputably noteworthy folk text.

The musical base is accompanied by video consisting of selected best artistic works by Ukrainian artists: Pymonenko, Vasylchenko, Shevchenko, Repin and a lot of others, which adds to individual feelings deep pride of the cognitive identification status: "I am a Ukrainian!"

Oleh Skrypka, Les Podervyansky. Humanists. (premium release). /digi-pack/

This recording is the case of an exclusive creative collaboration of two personalities significant for the modern Ukrainian culture. It is a pity that Les Podervyansky does not sing here. Instead, Oleh Skrypka actively participates in duping the plays, and this creates an additional comic and grotesque effect.. Published for the first time.

ManSound. Hymn of Ukraine. /mini-pack/. (State Anthem of Ukraine)

All the three versions of the Hymn are variations in the range from gospel and soul to swing and, to tell you the truth, all the tracks sound just cool. Common sense seems to prompt that we should expect for a skeptical attitude to this kind of experiments. But, dear guests, I insist the disc is a very qualitative, joyful, live present for all admirers of jazz.

Oleh Skrypka. Schedryk /Carol of the Bells. (single). /digi-pack/

For almost a century "Schedryk" has been traveling in the world in the truly fantastic arrangement of the genius Ukrainian composer Mykola Leontovych. However, one should not forget that the age of the schedrivka as it is must be already more than a thousand years, and every generation of performers fills it with energy and pulsations of its time.

Vopli Vidopliassova. Chio Chio San. (single). /digi-pack/.

The new work by VV managed to cause a lot of agitation even before the official release and that was absolutely deserved. This refers both to the song, and the video for it Oleg Skrypka and his friends are not afraid of subjecting themselves to creative experiments, that is why the video "Chio Chio San" for many became a real surprise..

Vopli Vidopliassova. Lado. (maxi single). /digi-pack/

A deserved answer to all the skeptics who said that VV would no longer be able to compose a single strong piece. They've managed and work over a few new pieces is in process now. Moreover, "Lado" is, presumably, truly one of the most beautiful songs in the whole history of VV.. If one dared drawing conclusions on the basis of only one song it would be possible to say that VV is acquiring a new face.

Tastefully done. Anything which promotes the Ukrainian national anthem has to be a good thing. Well done Skrypka!
