5 stars I never thought much about neo-progressive rock. I did try to listen to Pendragon and Marillion but I didn't quite find it to my taste. (Apart from IQ that is...). My wife went on a business trip to Poland and I had heard vaguely about Collage so I asked her to try and find Basnie (their only album at the time) and she did ! I think she found one of the rare available CDs in Warsaw at the time !!! And when I first put it on, I was totally blown away (sur le cul as we say in French). This is just excellent neo-progressive. No other band has done as good. The music sort of makes me think of Marillion. The drums, keyboards, guitars, bass... well all the instruments have a great sound and the playing is subtle and full of feeling. The vocals are in Polish. So what ? They are brilliant and that's good enough for me. I sometimes find myself trying to say some Polish words from the songs ! I got so interested in this band that I asked a friend to translate the titles for me. I was so disapointed when I heard that the band line-up had changed and that they sang in English that I lost interest. Must be the best neo-progressive album of all time !!!
