Condensed version: I loved the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy -- it was one of my "formative books" -- and I think that this album certainly does it justice. The other cool thing, however: you know how you hear the sounds of instruments like trumpet, brass section, calliope, organ, steel drums, vibraphone and synth keyboard on the album? Those are effects pedals. Only guitars were used on this recording, though I personally can't tell. Favorite track: Landing (incl. "Mamushka").
Poesy Rider

Poesy Rider à l'écoute de cet album (très bon au demeurant), j'ai beaucoup pensé à King crimson, notamment la période qui va des années 90 à aujourd'hui. J'ai aussi beaucoup pensé à Elodie Frégé, mais pour d'autres raisons, pas forcément musicales... Favorite track: Lehaim to N.E.P..
Hardo thumbnail
Hardo Debussy, Ravel and Fripp from Russia. Favorite track: The Parovoz Hitchhikers to Japan.

"If you're looking for a musical universe where classical influences coexist with elements of progressive rock and the avant-garde all on the same album then you'll definitely want to check the third full length release from one of Russia's most respected and original sounding bands Disen Gage... The Reverse May Be True is further proof of this units consistent artistic brilliance at crafting both adventurous and thought provoking compositions." – by Ryan Sparks at Sea Of Tranquility (USA)

"The Reverse May Be True is probably the most accomplished of the three albums released by Disen Gage thus far... If intelligent, quirky and off-beat instrumental prog hits the right buttons with you, then this album is definitely one to check out before it disappears." – by Mark Hughes at DPRP (UK)

"Lesson number one on how to mix prog rock, fusion jazz, russian folklore and science fiction soundtrack scores and a little bit of easy listening in a wild mixture of avantguarde rock music... It is soundtrack music to a movie not even David Lynch dares to shoot, because it is at the same time pompously boisterous and inflated as well as crazy freaked out outer space weirdness... Disen Gage is actually the bar band playing at the restaurant at the end of the universe every night for the lucky crowd able to get a seat with full frontal view of the apocalypse. And when they hit full 'mamushka' mode the party is bound to get really wild. And when you wake up the next morning, with a memory of the world having turned upside down you might remember a faint echo of what the title of this album really means." – by Georg Gartlgruber at Monochrom-Cracked (Austria)
