It is not for the first time and may be not last that I blush of pleasure, because for all that, I am right. Live album of an interesting group practically always becomes an event. It happens so because it is not a final invariable result, it is a real brisk process. In such cases masking is impossible. Mistakes are not mistakes here, because all this performance is alive, it breathes, rejoices and suffers. This is the skill and emotionality in pure form, and you are concerned with it simply due to the fact that you are listening to it. You are listening to it and become a participant of it, as the way you listen changes every moment the way this music sounds. So, Okean Elzy doesn’t frustrate you. After cool touch of "Supersymmetry", when fire was a bit aloof like star light on winter night, this "Acoustics" is just the thing which can warm and charm, move and inflame. Because its main feature is emotionality. It is like an experienced lover who has not lost his passion and tenderness. It is like a man who every time is able to love as if it were for the first time and make love as if it were the last time.
