“This is an album for those who are in music are looking for something more than the simple rhythm of drums and easy to sing the chorus. (…) But this is not an album from the series “I’ll show what I can do,” perhaps five years working on this album created a distance his music composition. And it was heard – it is more important for the author of an interesting sounds and binding than checking identity documents to technical skills. And this is called maturity.”
