One of the media listeners, Alexei Vyborov, a music reviewer, has already managed to share his first impressions of the album he listened to, leaving an independent review in the form of a brief review in the comments:
“The Temptation of the Soul electro-opera is an innovative and multifaceted reading of the story of Dorian Gray. Music that draws an eternal plot in my head with such exquisite taste... About love, beauty, time, happiness, soul and endless loneliness. The album at the intersection of genres is exactly the one that should sound in the theater.
Here it is - the desired opportunity to open to the viewer and listener works that are about important and eternal in an accessible language, modern, stylish and lively ... "Temptation of the Soul" is an hour-long journey in which everyone will feel what it means to live in pursuit of pleasure, explore the depths of his soul, choose love or immortality, death or loneliness. Each track richly and generously reveals all the new plot twists, with their originality and shades of the metropolitan metropolis at night in full diversity. Atmospheres from green clubs and alleys, to the unstoppable movement of streets, space, air, sensations from a bird's eye view or passionate whispers of lovers, intended only for two. Actual, fresh, elegant and poignant. For me, exactly. Definitely recommend for listening and sharing..."..
