An amazing collection of songs interpreted by Marc. Everyone of the songs is outstanding in every way. Lush orchestrations, strong vocals and mesmerizing lyrics. An emotional roller coaster, of joy to sorrow to defiance to hopelessness and back again to hope. With the story of Vadim Kozin looming in the background it's hard not to feel the deeper emotion in these songs that Marc taps into.
The album has a gypsy-folk, traditional sounding russian acoustic orchestration that I love. It's an exciting novel project. My hat is off to Mr. Almond for this surprising, entertaining, and thrilling piece of work.
I love all the tracks - i can't find one that doesn't stir me in some way.
