"...One of the things that makes Roussak unique is that he seems to be equally comfortable with classical, jazz, and rock music and often combines the styles within the same pieces. His mastery of the piano is readily apparent with dazzling fingerwork and impeccable technique... Blue Intermezzo is a breath of fresh air and I look forward to hearing more music from Andrew Roussak for many years to come! I give it my highest recommendation!" Kathy Parsons MainlyPiano.com, USA
"...All 12 tracks are very much worthwhile and make a wonderful collection -  it really works well as an album. They are played with passion and skill, demonstrating  once more what an great musician Roussak is. The recording is very good as well to my  taste....All around, a top notch CD, and an original gift for the holidays season.  On a scale of 1-6, a 5,5 masterpiece."  ArtRock for Magle Intl.

"...Much of the album is all instrumental deluxe, but the select vocal parts are  outstanding. From stadium sized to heavenly, the female parts are dreamy.  The listener will be thrilled with acrobatic keyboard action, some powerful  stimulating passages, and plenty of changes along the way.   A top of the line release, with grand use of multiple textures, smart combinations,  dynamics galore, and adventurous pleasure. A beauty!  RECOMMENDED.“  Lee Henderson on BIG BEAUTIFUL NOISE, USA "...During my first listening session I got more and more excited, and gradually I was  carried away to Keyboard Prog Heaven, what an exciting sound, and I love the  ultra-bombastic climates. Most tracks contain up-tempo beats, fuelled by a powerful  and dynamic rhythm-section...If you love keyboard driven prog like ELP,  Rick Wakeman solo, Trace, UK, Triumvirat, Erik Norlander, Par Lindh Project,  Little Tragedies or Gerard, this third solo effort from Andrew Koussak is an exciting  musical experience!  Erik Neuteboom BACKGROUND MAGAZINE, Holland "..."Storm Warning" begeistert durch tollen, stets eingängigen Prog im  Hardrock-Gewand: Obwohl Roussak bisher in erster Linie als Keyboarder in  Erscheinung getreten ist, halten sich Saiten und Tasten auf diesem Album die  Waage, was für jene ausgewogene Mischung aus Hard Rock und Prog sorgt. Also,  wie lautet das Urteil? Andrew Roussak hat ein ganz starkes Prog-Album abgeliefert,  wie man lesen kann, das beste seiner Karriere. Das würde mich nicht wundern.  "Storm Warning" ist eine klasse Scheibe!  Nik Brückner Babyblaue ProgReviews, Deutschland
My newest album
„..In general I am sceptic when it comes to prog rock renditions of classical music.  Even though they are my two favourite music genres, their combination usually  does not agree with me, even by bands as famous as Ekseption, Renaissance,  Yes, and Emerson Lake and Palmer. On his previous albums, Roussak has  shown that he can do this better than most, using compositions by Bach, Vivaldi,  and Dowland. Here he goes a step beyond - I think this is the best modern  rendition of a classical music composition I've ever heard.“ ArtRock for Talking Classical, Denmark "Storm Warning" war ein ganz starkes Album, das beste seiner Karriere. Es  begeisterte jene, die es begeisterte, durch tollen, stets eingängigen Prog im  knackigen Hardrock-Gewand - und das, obwohl Roussak eigentlich Keyboarder ist.  Klassisch beeinflusster Prog und (ebenso klassisch beeinflusster) Hardrock hielten  sich in perfekter Balance. Würde Roussak dieses Kunststück noch einmal  zustandebringen? Yep, würde und hat. "Crossing the Line" ist wenn, dann eher noch ein Tickerl  besser als "Storm Warning".  Nik Brückner, Babyblaue Seiten „…Crossing The Line is the first of three instrumental tracks on the disc.  Immediately one of the highlights and a song to sit down for. In just over  seven minutes, all registers are opened and there is variation with piano,  authentic sympho and a contemporary Arena-like sound. Catchy is an appropriate keyword. It's the best I've heard from Roussak…“  Hans Ravensbergen,  Progwereld  HOLLAND

„Die sieben Titel bewegen sich wie selbstverständlich zwischen klassisch, barocken  Elementen bis hin zum komplex, progressiv, rockigen Stilmix. Melodisch, manchmal  pathetisch, aber auch episch, so kann man mit wenigen Worten seine Kompositionen  umschreiben. Roussak verbindet Klassik mit der Moderne, dafür verwendet er neben  ausgeprägten Instrumentalparts auch wohldosierte Gesangslinien. Auch wenn dieses  bereits von diversen sehr profilierten Künstler ebenso perfekt vorgemacht wurde,  kann man Andrew Roussak nicht des Plagiats bezichtigen. Unbestritten, er  beherrscht nicht nur auf „Crossing the Line“ seinen Job…“  Horst-Werner Riedel, Betreutes Proggen
