Karfagen - Principles and Theory of Spektra (2020)

The twelfth album from this band from Ukraine.

Anthony Kalugin does keyboards, percussion and vocals here.

He has got help from numerous guest musicians who has added drums, bass, guitars, knob accordion, oboe, flute, bassoon and violin.

This is the second 2020 Karfagen album. I guess the maestro Kalugin became bored of the Covid 19 pandemic and isolation. Studio, it was, then. He also released an album under his own name too and I will review that album pretty shortly.

Quantity does not mean sloppiness and lack of quality. Not from the maestro Kalugin's hands and studio. 

The music here is mostly instrumental and keyboards based. You also finds a lot of guitars here too. But the keyboards does most of the job here.

There is an Asian feel over a lot of the material here. The countries and territories along the Silk Road plays a vital part on this album.

The album is fifty-five minutes long and not everything here passes muster. But most of it does and this is an interesting oriental sounding album.

It is also a good album and one well worth checking out.
