3 stars I was a little surprised with this one, having really enjoyed "Psychopuls" i was expecting another KING CRIMSON sounding record. Not even close. This is their debut and I was impressed at how clear the sound was. Excellent production. As usual the vocals are in Polish and are the only real negative for me.The keyboard play dominates this record, although the drumming is very well done.

"Kazdy Dzien To Wiecej Ran W Twej Glowie" is a long title eh ? It opens with a bombastic display of sounds before settling down to piano and gentle vocals as washes of synths come into play.The sound becomes intense 3 minutes in led by a drum / synth melody. Some in your face (ears) bass towards the end of the song. Nice."Galeria Iluzji" is one of my favourites on this disc. It has such a powerful sound of drums, bass, vocals and scorching guitar. Some strange sounds towards the end of the song."Autoportret" opens with piano and reserved vocals. Drums come in as the vocals strengthen. Soaring guitar solos come and go. Synths come in late as the song ends with the sound of a gong. "Strefa Cienia" is an uptempo song with some raw sounding guitar. The bass lines are great as the vocals and synths follow.

"Ogrod Przoznaczenia" is my favourite track and I agree with my friend tszirmay that this is "achingly beautiful". Acoustic guitar,flute and synths create an especially beautiful melody 5 minutes in. Some crisp drumming earlier as well.The final song "W Krainie Szmaragdowego Jaszczura" opens with some ominous sounds.The drums and synths sound so good when this song is played loud. Vocals and flute follow as the song kicks in before 3 minutes.The vocals are strong and there is some ripping guitar 8 minutes in then check out the drumming !The final 3 bonus tracks are live versions of their songs. And "Galera Iluzji" sounds amazing ! Atmospheric sounding guitars really make this a standout track.

This is a quality release ! Excellent sound and playing by all. I much prefer their "Psychopuls" album though with that darker, heavier KING CRIMSON sound.
