Moscow Сalling (titled Gorky Park 2 in many countries, including Russia) is the second album by Russian rock band Gorky Park. It was released between 1992 and 1993. Four music videos was made for the album: "Moscow Calling", "Stranger", "I’m Going Down" and "Tell Me Why".

Reception[edit]

The album went completely unnoticed in the U.S., where the band's MTV hit "Bang" was long forgotten by most rock enthusiasts and the taste of the audience had changed, but was well received in other countries. It sold 500,000 copies outside the United States,[1][2] notably becoming Platinum in Denmark.[3]
