      Not for me!

      You can almost always trust the Ruskies to come up with something quirky. although the basis of this album is not exactly new. Somewhere between Russian blues, Leonard Cohen gargling with sulphuric acid after too many cigars and an ancient monster, this is a slightly watered down version of Tuvan folk music. This southern Siberian part of Russia shares the odd habit of throat singing with nearby Mongolia. Yat-Kha are the band to have made the music more well known by modernising it through the integration of pop and rock elements such as the electric guitar.

      This seemingly ancient sounds as strange as it does deep and spiritual. One of the problems though is that I don't really do deep and spiritual, eventually the hypnotic sounds become a bit too trendy and chill-out for me. The album is summed up by the last track "Sodom I gomora" but perhaps not by style (which is quite scary) but by the result in this case it sounds like a horror film score but the whole album suffers from soundtrack syndrome with much of the earlier songs sounding like battle cries from a Genghis Khan war film.

      A lot of songs tend to sound quite similar and as ideal as the throat singing is for a Benilyn advert, I prefer the albums where it's a little mixed up with a bit of punk. No doubt this would be hyped as amazing if it was a little well known, it doesn't do a great deal for me though.
