Great musicianship from Andrew Roussak himself on keyboards and piano, with adequate to good contribution from the supporting musicians. The album grows on you with repeated listening, like most good albums. The sound (as far as I could judge by playing on my PC) is good. The highly melodic songs are good, sometimes even great ... an excellent debut with great promise for things to come!

Showing versatility and skill while handling his massive array of keyboards, Herr Roussak appears to be quite a good disciple of his teachers in absentia, particularly on the instrumentals. Overall, No Trespassing is a solid debut effort and should delight many art-rock fans, especially those who don't put musical complexity at the head of their list of priorities.

It is very remarkable interpretation of what the great German composers could accomplish today.
Roussak is not afraid to name J.S. Bach and some other infuluences like Rick Wakeman and Keith Emerson as his source of inspiration and he surely interpretates Bach very well in 70's progressive style...Colossus #34 ( May 2008 ) - progressive magazine, Finland
A Russian keyboard player living and making music in Germany, Andrew Roussak cites Rick Wakeman and Keith Emerson as his primary influences. Add a dash of classical-music sensibility, and you’ve got No Trespassing — a prog-rock mix of instrumentals, songs with vocals and traditional pieces. Here’s a guy who’s obviously poured his soul into this music, winning awards in Germany for his playing, and he’s surrounded himself with talented guitarists and a groovy rhythm section. Roussak imagines what Bach’s “Prelude” would sound like with 21st century enhancement and rearranges the composer's “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring” by dedicating it to his father. “Do Without Me” rallies around a grand piano, Hammond organ and Wurlitzer standoff, while instrumentals like “Wartime Chronicles” and “Vivace Furioso” show off Roussak’s virtuoso chops...

... The artist's clear admiration for Keith Emerson is again clearly shown. After a short piano-introduction Roussak again shows he really is a great keyboard player. Excellent synths and mellotrons in the old Emerson/Wakeman way....
