evilnoevil This album reminded me of what we all love rock of 70's - fun, courage, sudden surprises, and the most precious - it really ROCKS! Bravo and thank you the mastermind Yuri Volodarsky and all the band!!!

getting_tighter The "Life Is Good" and "Money In My Pocket" have a world hit power and quality. Mr. Volodarsky did an amazing job composing this record. Production is also second to none, simply immaculate. The list of talent involved in this record is remarkable. I would love to see Mr. Volodarsky focus on these two hits and give us a gift of a new record next year. That would be absolutely amazing!
Meanwhile I can’t get the Money off my mind :). It's infectious!  

musicenthusiast3000 A refreshing take on the progressive rock we've come to love from decades pased. Crisp production/mastering without sacrificing the authenticity and grit that is sancrosanct to the genre. Favorite track: (I Got) Money in My Pocket.

exper1982 This is a very tasteful and colorful work. It is a crisp and intense combination of theme, composition, lyrics and quite an impressive performance. Full of dynamics, these raw and powerful pieces take you on a journey through human experience, bring out a sense of adventure. The album is talented, imaginative and professionally done.

Michael Caplan It's retro prog like I love but it has a modern flourish. Highly recommended for fans of Genesis, Gentle Giant, Yes, and early King Crimson. 5 star.

Here is what international media saying about the RTFACT. Life is Good:

RTFACT review from THE PROG MIND 8.5/10 (5 Stars)
theprogmind.com/2017/09/08/rtfact-life-is-good/

“…original modern interpretation of classic progressive rock music...
...RTFACT is an Album of the Month! October 2017!"
Fred T. , NewEARS (New England Art Rock Society), USA

“Standing ovations! A brilliant debut album!”
Artur Chachlowski, MLWZ Radio Show, Poland

"Money In My Pocket" is the "Song of the Day”
RockSerwis FM radio

“RTFACT is Album of the Month! November 2017!
AAFM Xymphonia, Netherland

Fans of ELP, Gentle Giant and other early 70s prog will dig this grab bag of bright compositions featuring solo performances by Oz Noy, Nad Sylvan, Jeff Scott Soto and many others. Life Is Good – the debut album by Russian/American project RTfact – is an archaeological trove of musical nuggets, with soaring vocals, Hammond B3 wizardry, muscular guitar solos, and a supple rhythm section that grooves as hard as it rocks. Composer Yuri Volodarsky grew up in the USSR, a kind of parallel universe where limited access to Western music only increased his passion for it, while firing his musical imagination. And imagination is everywhere on Life Is Good, from the Spock's Beard-style vocal counterpoint of the title track, to the bizarre saga of an unlucky bank robber in Money in My Pocket, to an epic tribute to ELP in The King, the Master, and the Timekeeper. But while Life Is Good celebrates the joyful, whimsical vibe of early prog rock, the newcomers on the album bring a modern, fluid energy to the party.
