5 stars It's one of the best works SBB had to offer in their career. A few projects can draw you in like this one. Metaphoric lyrics (for those who understand polish) amplify the electrifying atmosphere Skrzek creates along with Jerzy Piotrowski on drums and Antymos Apostolis. Just as their other projects in 70's, this one is built upon very powerful melodies, simple but very philosophical lyrics, temperamental drumming and very good sounds of keyboards that never seem to get tiresome even though keyboards are all over the place. The sound colors are beautifuly blended with the atmosphere Skrzek is trying to evoke. The songs are very cleverly built with the necessary time dedicated for the listener to get "into it", and more you listen to them, the better they get. Clearly, "Z Ktorych Krwi Krew Moja" dominates the album, with fantastic structure to the entire song. The singing, where present, becomes another dominant instrument - it's a part of a structure and Skrzek is at his best on this album. Piotrowski's drumming is charged with energy and precision - he had a reputation of one of the best drummers in the world at that time. Some musicians said that thay could adjust the chronometer by his exact beats and he is certainly proving that on this project. I think a more space should have been given to guitar as Antymos Apostolis (of Greek origin) displays great intrumental skills where given a chance. One of my most favorite pieces in my collection and I highly recommend. Who should I compare their music with? I think theirs is so original and as it never tries to immitate anyone that to put them in a certain category would have not done justice. But if you like long compositions, thoughtful concepts, improvisations, strong melodies, powerful rythms, electrifying atmosphere and experimenting with sound colors, then your money will be well spent. I give five stars to this album, no question about it.
