Review Summary: Kneel before the goddesses of Russia.

If you are a Russian (or someone who prefers underrated/under-looked/unknown/only-known-in-certain-countries bands - ex. pizzamachine), you would know the triple threat girl group, Serebro. Basically the replacements of t.A.T.u, Serebro has already released a multitude of number one hit singles in Russia. These girls are currently, for all intents and purposes, the goddesses of Russia. It is not surprising then, that a tiny little EP from Serebro would cause Russia to treat it like the last slice of pizza on Earth.

You have to respect Serebro for attempting to fill the shoes of one of the most popular pop groups ever conceived of (t.A.T.u). Serebro's debut album was a blatant ripoff of t.A.T.u's style, and since it worked before, Serebro made it work again. However, Serebro is a much classier act, so no songs are as irritating as they have potential to be. The girls have soft vocals, nicely flowing through their music. They also seem to know their vocal limits, which is always welcome. In this minuscule EP, they carry a few parts from their debut style, and dump the rest. Serebro is showing signs of originality, smashing their unoriginal shell.

Serebro's sound is now eerily similar to old school trance music - it sounds surprisingly good.
Imagine the most blatant synthesizers you can think of, and then multiply them infinitely. This type of trance music will blow the roof off of any building; they have resurrected a long-dead style of trance music in gut-punching fashion. Trance music often lacks power when recorded on a disc, but this EP will turn any house into a roaring stadium. Alright, so maybe the album is annoyingly simple, but at least it is fun. Now closer to trance music, the girls of Serebro have separated themselves from their older sister, t.A.T.u. This EP signifies an interesting new direction that will hopefully be continued in future albums.

The middle one looks like she'll punish you if you do something bad. I like that.

(IT'S A MACHINE OF PIZZA.)

Great review. It's sweet, short, and to the point. Have a pos mate.

Also -

This doesn't matter in the least bit, but I wondered how far this review would get before making a t.A.T.u. reference; answer: not very far. I miss those girls; are they still around?

Hahaha you're asking the right guy! I actually reviewed their album, Waste Management, which was released at the end of last year. Unfortunately, they're on a hiatus right now...

Their debut was really good, but it's hard to keep up on these girls. Did you purchase the EP somewhere, and if so, where?

I didn't buy. Itunes or Amazon I suppose (digital format). Also, I believe some of these songs are free on Serebro's website but you'll need to know Russian haha.
