4 stars Absolutely masterpiece of Polish Progressive Rock.

The only reason why didn't gave maximum stars to "The Most Beautiful Day" is that this album isn't any musical discovery. Exodus used in a perfect way the best influences from Western Europe bands.

It's hard to select the best track from this album become all of them present very high level. After the first listening the most memrable one is "Złoty Promień Słońca" ("Golden Ray of Sunshine") with strong Władysław Komendarek's synthesizer part and great singing of Paweł Biruła (named as Jon Anderson of Eastern Europe...). It's fantastic and very melodic song which could become real smash-hit if only somebody help this song with good promotion.

Władysław Komendarek didn't afraid to use synthesizer in a big scale. Almost all tracks even that more acoustical ones like "Stary Noe" ("The Old Noah") or "Widok z góry najwyższej" ("The View From The Highest Mountain") are filled with his JM Jarre (of "Oxygene"/"Equinoxe" era) soundlike keyboards.

After the listening of all "The Most Beautiful Day" tracks you will ask yourself a question: a little bit of other bands influences (like Genesis' in title suite) but how they made this music so original ?

Enjoy your listening.
