"Today we have the grounds for joy. Oleh Skrypka, the frontman of the frontgroup VV, has recorded his solo album. I think, you may be sure in advance that you will not be bored while listening to this album. It will not be boring because Skrypka is constantly looking for something new and is constantly finding something new. And he is constantly exceeding the bounds of his own boons. It was in his compositions that I first heard the mixture of the Eastern tunes and Ukrainian folklore at the background of cheerful punk-rock. As for this album, one may say that this is a romance plus la chanson (in its French meaning, including the language of performance as well). This is the collection of songs which were and are loved if not in the whole world, then in many houses of the world. Being arranged by Skrypka himself, these songs get new and a bit unusual, if not interesting, sounding. With his own vision he appeals to several cultural layers at the same time. In a way it is another attempt to get to a new level of communication, to discover a new universal language. That is why, I think, even people with quite different preferences in music may find something interesting for themselves. No, this album does not shoot. It repairs, it sets to consonance of everybody with everything. Listen what the evening is telling you about. It is a nice story-teller. Are you a good listener?" Anton Yozhyk Leyba (Hedgehog)
