Somewhat of a departure from the previous albums, less of the sad songs over tunes you'd expect at a wedding - as described by my friends in Ivano Frankivsk - more of a pitch at the sounds of Vopli Vidopliassova (VV), Ukraine's own mega stars of mixing, rock, punk, funk, ska and traditional folk. Stays well away from `turbo folk' which is a great thing and to be applauded. Their versions of the Ukrainian traditional songs Ty Zh Mene Pidmanula and Horila Sosna - VV's set staples aswell- are excellent, where Len's vocal prowess really shines. However, I had to knock a star off for the risible Sex Pistols covers. Hit the skip button before they even start. Worthy addition to any collection, and sits well along side VV's classic Fayno - which really you should buy first.
