"So. The album is really queer, its style is "for one’s soul". To the question "for whose one?" we answer: a hippie’s one, whatever this word may mean. Nobody here strikes a pose, tries to prove anything to anyone, shaves or avoids tabooed lexis (attention!). Something different takes place here – a "session" for the sake of "session", even though in the empty "flat", and a bottle of beer as the closest friend. At least, it is within the reach. It is a man's dialogue with the air, when the woman has already left, but her image is still melting in the mirror. The day has nevertheless begun – you are surprised but alive and somehow even healthy, at least, so it seems. It snows in the northern window, the western one is wet with fog, the southern one has burned down. And you are in the middle of all that – what other explanations do you need? There is nothing. A hangover philosophical song."
