In the mid 90s Zdob si Zdub started as a hardcore punk band and soon moved towards a more folkpunk sound, added a heavy brass section to their line up and started to experiment with different styles like electronic, drum n bass and alternative rock. With their charisma and electrifying live shows Zdob si Zdub today enjoy the status of a top live act not only in Moldova, Russia and Romania but now also all over Europe. In last year's Eurovision Song Contest 160 million people rocked out to the eccentric song "So Lucky" from the upcoming Asphalt Tango release "Bastia Mafia". Since mid 90's Zdob și Zdub combines hardcore and Moldovan folklore in a unique and elegant way, offering a spectacular live show... add some hip-hop, drum'n'bass, jungle, punk... and we have an original music crossover, the meeting point of urban intensity and rural spirit. This charismatic band leaves deep traces in Moldova s music history, however feeling at home in front of any audience it reaches. Zdob și Zdub performed in more than 20 European countries, from small clubs to big festivals, like Roskilde in Denmark, Sziget in Hungary, Exit in Serbia, Peninsula in Romania and many more. Over the years, Zdob și Zdub opened for renowned bands like: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Emir Kusturica & No Smoking Orchestra, Korn, Biohazard, Rollins Band, Rage Against The Machine, Soulfly, The Garbage, Fun Lovin' Criminals and many others. In order to bring additional authenticity to its sound, Zdob și Zdub recorded songs, but also performed live, with traditional singers, such as Vasile Dinu (MC Vasile, from Romania), Osoianu Sisters (Moldova), Trio Erdenko (Russia). The music s personality is also transmitted through the videos that accompany 17 songs.

It's not a terrible record at all. "Good Bye" may be slow, but it's not dull. It has warmth, humanity and clever, catchy pop hooks. "The Holy Fuel" is probably fantastic live. The Pixies/Nirvana trick of soft verse/loud chorus is used to great effect here, although it could use a little more energy. And the group has finally put the absolutely incredibly awesome "So Lucky" on a CD, which kicks it up a star in the rankings from this fact alone.
If you haven't already, buy Ethnomecanica or Agroromantica. Two awesome discs. As for this one, compared to what the boys are capable of doing, this one is relatively lifeless and (except as noted above) utterly conventional.
