The album included an «electric» version of Roman's Award-winning song Alien's Dream, which was written for the latest project World Of Guitar Trio and is dedicated to Steve Vai, who very kindly responded to the new release: «Congratulations on your record. And thanks so much for the touching Alien’s Dream. It’s quite beautiful! I like music that has some rich changes and cool melody!»

Congrats on 25 years of making music for the world to enjoy!

Reviews:

"Russian guitar wizard Roman Miroshnichenko returns with a new fiery album. Wizard is not overused here as his technique can be matched with the very best in the world. My first impression was that he sounds quite a bit like Al Dimeola with a more metal influence in the mix. And of course one of the first things you can read about Roman is how he has worked with both Al Dimeola and Steve Vai, which just about explains it. I may have known that, as this is not the first time I have heard his amazing playing. The one thing that strikes me every time I hear him is that he is a bit easier to emotionally connect to than many of the guitar wizards like Malmstein and yes, even Al Di Meola. In part that may be due to his creative mix of acoustic and electric passages as well as a variety of pace and power. Good dynamics and fantastic playing make this a fine album." © David Hintz, FolkWorld #64 11/2017
