Okay. Where do I start? Masterpiece? This is
incredible! Once again deceived by initial perception! This
is a fat (phat? – or both) album of MIDI instrumentals, all
original that resemble the styles of progressive rock, and
deliver sounds recognizable from past artists such as Rick
Wakeman’s “Journey to the Center Of the Earth.” Any regular
MIDI user will recognize the enormous sounds that we are
all use to hearing, and choosing not to use, because of the
same reason! Well, here, Ruslan takes these sounds, and his
ability as a drummer, songwriter, composer, and schooled
musician, and creates an incredible compilation of songs
that will make your jaw drop.
After visiting his website I understood more about his background,
and where he was coming from. For this particular case, it
helped me in reviewing and listing to the album. I would
recommend getting a hold of this album. If for no other reason,
it will make you realize all of the ways you can use GM tones!
You will hear a broad range of styles from classical, rock,
jazz, and what is probably similar to the typical styles
of music he grew up with. As soon as you are done reading
this, go visit his web page and try to get a hold of his
music. You will enjoy it.
