Imagine the Bolshoy Ballet dancing to Mannheim Steamroller while an Iron Butterfly light show is projected all over the stage and you'll get an idea of what to expect from KeyOrchestra's BORN AGAIN... a definable category to be totally cool!!!
- Mike Parker (Buddy Hollywood Magazine)
The songs on the "KeyOrchestra" elicit such a variety of emotions and memories it is hard to not admire the hard work and devotion put into the culmination of these works. Born Again, the title song, is the perfect introduction to the album with its smooth rhythm and electronic dance beat blended with a flowing keyboard movement. Bouquet of Fantasies, slows down to a symphonic Jazz riff blended with electronic and celtic-esque sounds. Forward to the Past brings Olga Lomteva's opera voice to add vocal composition to a gentle electronic flavor. French Song uses ethnic vocals and mellow New Age music to create a musical blending of voice and tone. Morning in Manhattan can best be described, at least by me, as the aural picture of a dance party spilling out from Juilliard and into the streets of Manhattan. All in all this CD is a vibrant variety of classical skill, joyous composition and talent, talent, talent. I can envision great things for this band and I wish them only the most prosperous of futures.

Imagine Crystal Method or Enigma, but with Sarah Brightman on vocals. The basis of Key Orchestra's music is a synth-pop electronic groove punctuated with so-so keyboards and good guitar licks, and in some songs, very good operatic female vocals that may be the strongest element of the album. There are some good piano lines, and the song structures are almost progressive or jazzy - but there's so much of that new-agey programmed synthetic percussion that some listeners may be turned off before appreciating the strengths of this music.

And Ithought... (Bouquet of Fantasies) And I thought original music was dead. Absolutely amazing sounds!
I'm guessing you guys had a lot of fun creating those! Production - Top notch. Melodies - Dreamy! A truly professional, original and surprising track!
Great job on this one!
- Fred, USA (Composer/Producer)
Interesting!!! (The Immigrants) great use of samples and sounds, love the rhythm and the synths and the atmosphere, wow then the guitars remind me of a UK band called the specials in the late 70's early eighties then it breaks into a lounge type sound . This has got the lot except a break through vocal but it doesn't need it as u have loads going on and its mixed really well. this is great. Love to hear what you think of our tracks
Lazy summer days..... (Dream Valley) I am liking this too. What a beautiful dreamy vibe you have with this. So wonderfully laid back, the sort of tune that makes me think of lazy summer afternoons by the beach. Stunning mixture of electro sounds and acoustic upright bass. The pads are awesome. All the instruments were chosen with one thing in mind, that was to create a cool laid back, chill out zone of a song, and it has succeeded. It works for me....
- Steve Martin, UK (Guitar/Producer)
Very cool track! (Morning in Manhattan) Nice intro...very cool beats, makes you want to move your body along with the tune...Very nice synth pad, cool sounds all around the stereo field... A pleasant listening for sure, well produced and arranged. Congrats, amazing work!
- Carolin Liena, USA (ASCAP Songwriter)
Oh yeah! (Jump) Now we're talking..love the upbeat ethnic feel to this...nice use of the vox and synth elements. Also some nice organic sounding melodic instruments...you are all very talented and have some pretty unique music... I really like this tune, gets a MIX PIX from me...great job :)
- Bob J Marvin, New Zeeland (Producer/Sound Designer)
Brilliant (Olympic Spirit) reminds me a bit of Jarre "revolutions" but this is a house wonderland, sounds everywhere, i will get my headset on.
Great tune, Great band!

Full of eastern promise..... (Morning in Manhattan)
This made me sit up and take notice straight away. It has a lot of elements I like in music from the eastern ethnic vocals to nicely composed electronics to a hint of Yellow Magic Orchestra. I like the tune very much, and could easily listen to this over and over again. Very nice production to this very "danceable" track. The ending could do with a bit of editing as I could here the start of another track right at the end. I like this a lot.
Imagine Crystal Method or Enigma, but with Sarah Brightman on vocals. New original music, beautiful melodies, perfect grooves and excellent sound design. Creative combination of Pop-Rock, Electronica, Modern New-Age & Spiritual music with elements of Symphonic mixes, opera and ethnic voices. Remixes of famous Classic Rock and Classical Masterpieces.
