“Energy, that is enjoyable to hear!..”

“You won’t hear an album like this all year. Maybe longer. 10/10 stars!”

“They have some good buzz going and anyone that was a fan before will certainly become even more of one when they hear "Breaking the Ice." This album is way more than an ice-breaker, it's that and the entire conversation. Well done. 9/10 stars”

““Breaking the Ice” by Privet Earth is truly an innovative and unique album that displays fantastic musicianship and originality from frontman Ivan Smirnov. The vocals are fantastic, the instrumentation and implementation of different styles of music works very well. Now, all the rest of the world has to do is catch up, if they haven’t already. 10 / 10 stars !!!”

“Privet Earth are a surging LA based band for many reasons armed with a brilliant perspective an amazing voice to inspire your vivid imagination. 9/10 stars”

“...the album is leaving the listener beaten and begging for more!”

“It all flies by so quickly you’re intrigued for more. But I’m not sure what hold more value, the production, the vocals or the music, but either way it’s a good blend of styles that make up this band”

“...you already want to hit replay and start the record again, it’s that contagious. 9/10 stars”

“I can see this band really taking off from here and winding up alongside all of their contemporaries, and sticking around with the best of ‘em. This CD is that good...”

“...the band takes us to gold days of New Wave with some Rush in it, it´s impossible to just not stand and start dancing all over the room with its upbeat melodies.”

“PERHAPS THIS IS PRIVET EARTH! TIME. (Score: 9 out of 10 points)”

“Privet Earth is not a band to be ignored; they have something to offer to the music world.”

“...sounds like modern day Axl Rose attempting something groundbreaking and contemporary which we all know is surely an impossibility these days.”

“On their new Ice Ep, PRIVET EARTH! prove that they are the Rolex of Rock music and they are just waiting for you to notice.”

“A recommended look at a largely deserving new star in action. PRIVET EARTH! served on extra rocks!”

“PRIVET EARTH! is a modern day classic.”

“...from QUEEN to NIRVANA, from BOWIE to WHITE STRIPES, from the BEATLES to the CHILLI PEPPERS…….. PRIVET EARTH! has elements of all those & more.”

“PRIVET EARTH! have something that makes you believe they are the savoir of rock music.”

“PRIVET EARTH! have been placed on the forthcoming Grammy voting ballot and it is not hard to see why.”

“One finds oneself lost in awe at what this fella does!”

“It doesn't get any better than this!”

“Never afraid to mix it up, PRIVET EARTH! relishes in the writing of epic numbers that sway from side to side and up and down with whatever will he wants....The ad execs will love this St Petersburg rock answer to Moby.... PRIVET EARTH! has made an album that conjures up images and provokes the mind into probing your senses and I can only applaud him for that.”

“This band (PRIVET EARTH!) might as well already be on MTV... When that day comes (because sooner or later it will come), we’ll say with intelligent arrogance, “We told you so!” **The Album received the highest score (9 out of 10) among new rock releases on the site.”

“Is Ivan Smirnov the lucky cavemen who accidently discovered fire or is he the pure genius of Albert Einstein with his Theory of Relativity? I can’t believe that someone could put together an album this good by chance.”

“A Typical Russian Wonder!”

Anton Chorny - Vezdehod (Russia)

“This voice is far from average...”

“Simply said, PRIVET EARTH! deserves your attention. He has released an album that easily exceeds the standard of rock today let alone the standard of unsigned rock today. Listen now so you can say you knew him when… ”

“It’s predominantly indie-rock, but incredibly flamboyant... PRIVET EARTH! are unique in other ways, especially the insane singings of Ivan Smirnov. ”
