So bad, I can't help but laugh!!
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Yearning to hear the songs I learned while on a Study Abroad trip in 1995, I purchased this CD. This is the most horrid version I have ever heard! First year language students could do a better job at pronunciation. Every song has a garish, obvious mispronunciation. The most annoying one is their version of "Kalinka". They do not pronounce it "Kaleenka" (long e) they pronounce it "Kaleeneeka". My advice to anyone who has taken more than a semester of Russian is to keep searching for a better CD. I know I will!"
The singers are not russian

"If you don't mind that these guys have a heavy non-russian accent, then by all means, buy this CD."
A parody?

"I - a Russian! - could do a better job impersonating Bob Dylan than this fellows - pretending they are Russians... And no, it's not only "singing" part: instruments, sound, arrangements are truly aufull! Do yourself a favor - buy "Stars of St.Petersburg" CD, it's the real deal, don't waste no money on this parody..."
