REVIEWS FOR 'ALL OF US' by IMPRESARIO
While it was likely intended more for the serious audiophile than it was the average pop music consumer, there’s no debating whether or not Impresario’s All of Us is a terrific album that hardcore experimental enthusiasts and causal listeners should be able to enjoy equally this fall. The independent beat has never been as alive with eclectic power as it is right now in 2020, and if you want to understand what all of the critical fuss has been about, All of Us and the collective works of Valerian Ruminski are definitely worth spending some of your time with this season.
John McCall- Too Much Love Magazine- Nov 2020
All of Us is an emotional, endlessly concept-driven album that doesn’t really let you steer away from its complexities without getting lost in another web of hypnotizing harmonies or thought-provoking poetry around the next bend, but for some of us, that’s just what we needed to give this unimaginably strange year just a little bit of sonic intrigue.
Clay Burton- Indépendant Music and Arts-Nov 2020
“Smile” introduces a brooding poeticism into the mixture of material only to pull us away from the vocal-centric style of arranging in favor of blasting “You Got Me” and its fabulously outrageous electronic beats as loudly and proudly as possible. It’s definitely the most flamboyant transition of All of Us, but I’d be lying if I said that it was the only element of avant-garde experimentalism here. “Love is Not a Time Machine” and “Vegaquarian” follow similar routes out of the mainstream and into the dense decadence of a neo-art rock I really want to hear more of in the future.
Michael Rand- Mob Angeles- Nov 2020
In his new album as Impresario, appropriately titled All of Us, Valerian Ruminski reaches out to the masses via every inch of sonic space he can occupy through our stereo speakers this fall and portrays a brooding story told through both original and cover material, and from where I sit, it’s a masterful sequel to Songs from Inside by every measure.
Troy Johnston- Official Fame Magazine- Nov 2020
Strutting forth to the beat of a neon R&B/pop crossover, the title track in Impresario’s new record All of Us is undeniably as eclectic as anything the powerhouse vocalist Valerian Ruminski has ever stamped his name on, but truth be told, his performance in this most recent affair is actually one of his most moving. There’s an unfiltered passion that flows through his approach to the verse in tracks like this one, “Give Life a Chance,” the prog-rockish “1865” and flooring “Love is Not a Time Machine” that is almost impossible to impede, and for me personally, it’s reason enough to give this record a listen.
