Cello in music of Romislokus:
Listening to it, I hear a variety of styles blending together, including progressive rock, space rock,
orchestral sounding pop, ambient, dance, and classical, the latter due in a large part to the moody cello-playing of Irina Unakovskaya
- not something you hear often in rock music.

About Irina's playing:
There's also the excellent cello work of Irina Yunakovskaya.
Her wonderful playing does add nice dimension to the music.

European Progressive Rock Reviews about the album
Vinyl Spring, Digital Autumn:
The arrangements are full and complete and everything is held together with the cello and violin
which grace the music with chilling yet soulful notes. The violin, but most especially the cello, is well used giving this whole body of work a haunting almost classical edge.
The end result is an album and band who can compete with the best that Europe can offer.
