4 stars This album may sound a bit secondary, since there are so many neoprog albums in the vein of ROGER WATERS, PINK FLOYD and MARILLION (also bits of early IQ records could be discernible). But the music on this album is a decent prog. It has catchy but not mundane tunes, interesting keyboards and guitar solos, the music is thoroughly sung and played and the production is spotless. The highlights are four opening tracks and the coda, there is also an interesting instrumental track "Talk To Aliens". It is an concept album exploring the topic of how would it be if you could you have had all your dreams fulfilled. The tracks are smoothly blended together into one, long song, the length of the tracks is balanced and they are joined with catchy instrumental themes. However, the only drawback are lyrics, because of which the development of the concept seems unfinished, IMHO. It is clearly visible that the author is more an musician than a poet and that they were translated to English from Polish. But not everyone is born Peter Hammill or Fish and great lyrics are a rare gem even in prog rock, so this is hardly a charge. Why have I rated it with 4 stars? Because it is decent, very audible music, which could give pleasure to any progfan, therefore would not spoil any collection, but otherwise, this record would smoothly fit into it.
