"I believe that most people in the world like good music, regardless of the genre. If it's good, it's good. However, there are some genres of music out there that are quite polarizing like heavy metal or smooth jazz. Alexander Shulgin song, "My Moscow" would certainly be considered smooth jazz, and right off the bat, that may turn a lot of people off. However, the acoustic guitar playing of Paul Drew adds a sort of flamenco feel that comes from the minor scale pattern used, and also is a result of the nylon strings (which I believe guitar players often under-appreciate). Chris Aldridge adds a clean sax sound and his tone works well for this style. Though Shulgin's skills as a composer are more clearly on display on other tracks, his compositional chops are still present here, regardless of the simplicity. So, if you can get past the whole smooth jazz thing, you should be able to enjoy this track." - Will Cohn, MusicDish e-Journal
