4 stars To my personal taste, this third album by SBB is stronger than the second album. Even though it's not in close similarity, this album reminds me to Chick Corea's Return To Forever. The use of mother tongue language as vocal (by Jozef) has made this song rich in textures and style. The opening track "W kolysce dloni twych (Ojcu)/ In The Cradle Of Your Hands (To My Father)" (9:07) is dark at opening / intro part featuring mellow vocal. AT approx minute 5 the music moves in dynamic way with drums as beat keeper and guitar solo as lead. The tempo moves faster during interlude part as shown by faster drumbeats. The keyboard solo is really stunning and energetic.

The second track "Z których krwi krew moja / From Whose Blood, My Blood" (10:11) continues the style of previous one with now more bluesy and jazzy opening. The guitar fills at the opening are played softly. The song features vocal, as the opening track does as well. The interlude part with moog solo and guitar solo is very nice. In the middle of the track the music moves into faster and more dynamic style of music.

The album's epic "Pamięć w kamień wrasta / Memory Grows Into Stone" (19:48) takes too long opening part to have the music taking off. It only happens at the later part of the music.

In terms of similarity, this album is in a way similar in style with Billy Cobham "Spectrum" album where it features Tommy Bolin as guest guitarist for one song. Overall, this third album is an excellent addition to any prog music collection. Trouble is .. the recording quality is not that good: too much bass and the mid range is not clear enough. Keep on proggin' ..!
