Album review

We have almost accepted the fact that music for cinema genre has become not topical for today’s music lovers. Pillars of the genre have left the scene, faithful fans have switched to more fashion today alternative teams like “Gang Starr” and “Phusion Culture”, and the founders of tuneful soundtracks that often were the reason to watch a movie have become assets of musical encyclopedias. But exceptions do exist, and if previously we were surprised by British from “The Cinematic Orchestra” today the Russian group “Pervoe Solnce” makes the company with them with their double album “Moments of Joy”.
