4 stars Wow! Having enjoyed SBB 2nd and 3rd album I finally get used to the kind of music they play and I think this 4th album "Ze Słowem Biegnę Do Ciebie" is the best for my personal taste. This does not mean to undermine their previous albums. And now I know why my colleague collaborator Stephen Lang told me that he adores the band which by the time he told me I had no idea what SBB is.

This album offers a music that in a way is hard for me to classify as it has the elements of fusion, space music and rock. The first part of the CD "Ze słowem biegnę do ciebie" (19:20) reminds me to the style of jazz rock fusion album by Billy Cobham "Stratus" where Tomy Bolin played guitar. But when the vocal line rolls into the music, it gives me a flavor of Italian Prog like PFM. Well, it's not entirely true as this album has different style. Yes, there is part with violin solos that reminds me to Jean Luc Ponty but both artists have different style of music, overall. This opening track can be considered as an epic as it has multi-style and moods combining heavy and light parts. It has also some sort of improvisation (or at least it sounds like and improvisation) like it is demonstrated through keyboard solo at approx minute 15.

."Przed premierą" (19:00) starts with an ambient style followed with a marching snare drums that brings the music into a bit of jazz rock fusion which reminds me to Return To Forever. The combination of keyboard and dynamic drumming is quite enjoyable. Through this track SBB proves that their approach in music through creation of music with multi styles that listeners cannot predict how is quite obvious. In fact, I would say that the music is quite exploratory in nature. Despite keyboard-based composition, there is a stunning guitar solo in the middle of the track (approx minute 8th).

Overall, this is an excellent album.

Gatot | 4/5 |
