"Кривое Зеркало"

Вся моя предыдущая жизнь - путь у этому диску. Мой первый сольный диск, записанный на рубеже тысячелетий, назывался “Зеркало”, в полном соответствии с заглавной песней, написанной тридцать лет назад: ученый видит в зеркале авантюриста с револьвером. В молодости нам и зеркала не надо, мы видим только себя, куда ни посмотрим. Весь мир - одно большое “Я”. Время искривляет зеркало жизни, в отражении часто проступают образы других людей, времен и мест, порой - неожиданно для нас самих.
Владимир Музыкантов

My whole life has lead up to this album, "Warped Mirror." My first solo album, recorded at the turn of the century, was called 'The Mirror', as was the title song written thirty years ago: a scientist sees his own reflection in a mirror where he is transformed into an armed gangster. When we are young, we have no need for mirrors - we see ourselves wherever we look. The whole world is one big 'I'. Time warps the mirror of life, our own reflection starts to show images of other people, times and places - often when we least suspect it.
Vladimir Muzykantov
