"Boris Midney epitomizes sophistication and subtlety in dance music. His records transcend the medium and were years ahead of their time...in fact they are timeless for there has never been another producer remotely like him. Even Cerrone, Costandinos, Moroder and Chantereau of Voyage cannot touch him. Additionally Midney plays all keyboards and horns himself and does all the arrangements as well as mixing and cover art. His rigorous training as a classical musician in the Soviet Union is displayed in his unusual structural form as well as his Rachmaninoff-like melodies. Highly reccomended also is his album entitled Beatiful Bend which contains the masterpiece "Make That Feeling Come Again"."
Richard Kleiderman disco or East European disco?

"I don't really know what to make of this album. On one hand you have at times melodies reminiscent of monumental pianist Richard Kleiderman (in "Do Me Good" for example); on the other, we sometimes hear distinct East European tunes cloacked with disco arrangements. No doubt, this is the weirdest musical mixture I have ever encountered, and I don't mean it to be read as being bashful or critical.I enjoy "Join The Dance" and "Do Me Good" (the former in particular, which is a better track than the latter). At the 3 minute mark of the former, the lushful, excessively fresh, youthful singing is discarded at once and the song's melody structure changes to a repetitive East European routine, demonstrating what I said in the previous paragraph.
"Do Me Good" employs enjoyable tunes, however strange they might be. "There's A Way..." is of roughly the same caliber as "Do Me Good". "I'd Like To Get Closer" has a pretty good tune and melody, its beat is darn good too and it has very intense string arrangements - to a higher degree than the degree of the string arrangements on the other tracks, which is pretty high anyway.As with virtually every Midney project, the lyrics are pretty shallow, not to mention being cartoony, childish and the schoolgirly singing. Unfortunately Midney seems to accentuate this charecteristic of Eurodisco more than any other producer of his niche."
