Okean Elzy. Gloria.

I did not expect that. And what can you say here? A lot of people waited impatiently for the release of this album, so it will be sold off irrespective of what will be said about it whether it is good or boring, green or speckled violet (not to forget to knock! We are also the mystery of the third planet, arent we?). Still, really, something has changed for better because here and now smearing of tears over a face, which is called crying, is gradually turning into sobbing, and I say that figuratively, not for the sake of offending somebody. You see, to cry or to whimper is one thing, but to wail and to sob is another thing - there is some pathetic element in it, some passion and energy, which may as well exceed the scale, tore clothes and uncover not only breasts, but also bones and blood pulsation. Considering the matter from musical point of view, personally for me this manner of presentation sometimes reminds stones, which are rolling well, you understand what I am talking about. This is a compliment, but the quality of the album yes - deserves compliments. There was a film entitled "Crazy Dog and Gloria". I dont remember its content now, but as for its title its wonderful. It seems to me that the same thing happened to "Ocean Elzy" at last. May be, for the sake of thatit was worth while changing the group members with the exception of Guru, of course. Now it is interesting what will happen next. Because judging by ears to be continued.

Svyatoslav Vakarchuk. Vnochi. /digi-pack/. (At Night)

In spite of that At Night compositions do not meet the pop-format, the album is aimed at mass audience. The name, voice and the specific, characteristic of only Svyatoslav Vakarchuk melodics of the compositions will help fans of Ukrainian music become acquainted with new music forms, to seize new music territories.

Dudko quintet. Sofia.

"Sofia" is not something soft and sweet. Fresh improvisation music with the Slavonic flavor bright and rather poignant music, which in no way fits for serving as just a background. It requires attentive listening, and it is just pleasant to listen to it attentively, to track the line of each instrument...

Svyatoslav Vakarchuk. Brussels. /digi-pack/.

The main thing is that this music is not committed to a certain style, but rather to a certain brand, a quality of expression. So, if for the sake of this quality one needs to add some atypical colors it happens in an easy and natural way. Such a cool simplicity. At the same time it is a team play, in which no one pulls the blanket over himself.

Hud:mov. Trampliny.

As for me, this work of art is marked by lightness, at that this lightness is more pleasant than vain. You see, there are thoughts present here, and they are different, but they are not put on a pedestal, on the contrary, they fly simply and easily somewhere near your head.

You, guys are awesome and the new album is just wonderfull, but still there is something missing in it. Yes, the energy is there, yes, Slava Vakarchuk still deserves the titul of sex-symbol of Ukraine, and not only Ukraine, but the charm, the style, the uniq part that made OE so unlike everyone else and the one I fall in love with a year ago is gone.. I just cant find it in any song on the album.. Its just not there. All the songs are perfect. WAY TOO PERFECT.. Its like wearing jewelry. When its not so much of it, it makes you look better and gives you your uniq charm, but when you are covered by just spoils all your outfit!! So better not wear it at all in that case..
Anyway, good job, guys. Just try to get the OE style back

More and more proving themselves to be a classic rock band capable of almost anything. Shades of Freddie Mercury in many of the tracks...and the band has the talent to lay a solid and creative foundation. They keep getting better and better. Highly recommended! Now when does an album in English come out - that would be something! The world is waiting!
