Language Of Stone Ilya E.Monosov : Seven Lucky Plays, or how to fix songs for a broken heart (US,2008)**'
Obviously the collection of songs here is well arranged. The songs themselves however are rather rationalisations of rather egocentric imaginations with a voice, which even baritone-whispery expressed is recalling the same form of deliberateness of putting this all to words. I can’t get rid of the feeling the lack of deeper imaginations of feelings in love are to blame.
