AllMusic Review by

This compilation features the work of four artists -- TK, Yuri Garin, Vadim Mischuk, and Leonid Sergeev -- who each employ a contemporary production quality to old-school Russian folk music. It's a synthesis that sounds kind of strange; the production is as glossy and synthesized as mid-'80s pop/rock, yet the music alludes to the forgotten past. Since Russian folk isn't exactly the easiest style of music to come by, though, one might have to settle for this, even if it's far from the ideal place to appreciate such a fossilized sound.
