The first minute was forced to recall the legacy of the American group Earth, with their priblyuzovannym ambient, but everything falls into place as soon as something starts to Borisov whisper-sings-pronounce in his favorite manner, long known for all those interested in experimental music. Somewhere in there half-heard line, somewhere is just babbling incoherently, and at some point begins to show the text of the song "Acid" Borisov Night Project Prospect, has existed since the mid-eighties. While Alex deals with vocals and guitar, Olga asks rhythmic structures, whose roots can be found in the psychedelic rock 70s and New York, but the Wave of the early 80's. Torn and confused drum loops combined with a constant pulsation perceived and varied dynamics and the stop-time. In the end, it all gives a sense of limited freedom, in which the musicians deliberately break the frame, trying to create improvisational and fragmented near-song structures, to immediately destroy them and start building again.
