I personally, for example, was not brought up with songs by "Opalny Prince" – I'm listening to them for the first time now. But I listen – and there rises inside me a strange feeling of nostalgia. Not for the times, no – that is a different thing. This is nostalgia for something right, something primary. The sounding of "Opalny Prince" immediately, from the first seconds convinces that they were at the very sources. It seems that this group is one of those lucky ones who do not make mistakes. First – because they are really talented. Second – because they are still from the cohort of the pioneers, and pioneers never make mistakes, they just discover new ways, opportunities. At all events, "Opalny Prince" as far back as in the 1980s started doing what virtually all Ukrainian rockers are engaged in now – adding some ethnic flavor to rock music. If you remember, at that time imitation of western standards was more popular – but the guys even then correctly felt the new vector. And, having listened to this disc, you will make sure – almost 20 years ago they were doing their business so intellectually, as not everyone does it today. And it's a pity, by the way.
"Rock legends of Ukraine" is a series of compilations of the best works of known Ukrainian rock groups. These musicians have created modern Ukrainian music.
