4 stars This Russia band founded by two sisters (Kaneveskaya) is back with an ambitious 2 CD album on the story of the universe. This album begins with some space effect before going in the symphonic mode with some delicate guitars and a radical techno break that will become a trademark throughout this 90 minutes journey. The female of Elena Kaneyveskaya made their first appearance on "Methane Rain". We are treated with a big bass sound and a couple of guitar solos. "Gamma Waves has an addictive techno intro before going in many styles of music from the symphonic of Steve Hackett to the Jazz. "Silent World" has an impressive resurgence of the guitars in the middle after some quiet moments. "Valley Oblivion" is a more straightforward song in the style of Mostly Autumn. The second CD is more space and atmospheric. "Following a Neutrino's Flight" is electronic music Tangerine Dream style. As for the epic of 23 minutes "The End of the Satellite Age", it starts with some samples of classic music before getting back to some space and electronic music. There's a clear influence of Mick Oldfield guitar sound on this song. The first CD is more satisfying for me because it covers more ground in music styles, and there is enough good music to give to this more spins. 3.7 stars
