Editorial Reviews

2009 collaboration from former Soft Cell vocalist Marc Almond and Russian producer Alexei Fedorov, a tribute to legendary Russion performer Vadim Kozin. Kozin was the Soviet era's much-loved, exiled then forgotten singer of Gypsy Folk and Russian Torch Song Romances. Marc discovered Kozin's work on his first visit to Russia in 1992 and was immediately taken with the purity and passion of his voice, as well as the beauty and melancholy of his songs. Recorded and mixed in Moscow with Fedorov, Oprheus in Exile features Russia's most famous Folk ensemble, Orchestra Rossiya, and sees Kozim's lyrics specially translated for Marc. The flamboyance and despair of Kozin is juxtaposed by the ever-present optimism of a lost genre of song. Marc gives these universal concerns an overdue airing on a unique album that gives the original songs an all-new big, classy and stylized orchestral production, yet stays true to the original feel and roots of the songs. SFE.

If you live in the United States, chances a better than not that the last thing you heard from Marc Almond was via Soft Cell, who gave us that wonderful early 80s technopop masterpiece: their splendid cover of "Tainted Love." However, if that's all you know of Marc then you've missed out on one of the more ecclectic, misunderstood, dynamic solo careers in music today. The last 30 years may not have been kind to Marc Almond if you judge his work only by top ten smash hits (although he did have a number one in the UK with 1987's "Something's Gotten Hold of My Heart"), but Marc has nonetheless been very kind to his loyal fans, giving them a steady stream of romantic, dynamic, works that span a rainbow of delicious, exotic genres.

"Orpheus In Exile: Songs of Vadim Kozin" is the newest bold brushstroke on his ever-expanding musical canvas. "Orpheus" is actually the second of Almond's forays into the Russian musical landscape, the first being his recent "Heart On Snow" album. But where "Heart On Snow" provided a wonderful overview of beloved songs from that country, "Orpheus" narrows the focus on "Russian Orpheus" Vadin Kozin, a singer/songwriter who, though immensely popular in his day, was largely swept away in Stalinist paranoia and general homophobia of the early 20th Century, to be largely lost in the fraying edges of an evolving Soviet state.

I absolutely love this album! Those familiar with Maurice Jarre's classic "Doctor Zhivago" soundtrack will be delighted to find similar textures: snow-laced gypsy strings and aching accordians which, from the first note, transport the listener into the forgotten Russian-edged French Chanson style of music. .
