Generally stuff based on or about Russian life is of a high quality; Tolstoy, Stravinsky, Shostakovich, Red Alert 2. Yes, something to do with peasants working fields in cold, desolate wastes brings out the muse in all of us. It's rather fitting that a bunch of Finns should take up the mantle and sing about Russia too; after all, it's basically just one big cold, constantly snowing/drizzling socialist country up there. Indeed, KYPCK do a great job of sounding as soviet as possible; there's that grumpy "I've had too much vodka, I must beat up my wife" sort of stomp, and a real cold industrial feel that accurately represents working in a factory in Siberia in the middle of winter. Luckily being cold, bitter and vodka soaked isn't a necessary thing for enjoyment of this album, so whether you're beyond the iron curtain, censoring the internet in China or even oppressing the working class in America there's plenty here for the whole family to enjoy.
