4 stars It really IS a masterpiece, and IMHO their best album, ex aequo with "Pamięć". Raw, progressive, fusion improvisations, heavy (sometimes they sound like early Sabbath:)) riffs, psychedelic guitar, incredibly thick drum parts and whirling moogs perfectly compiled with gentle piano parts by Józef Skrzek. The general sound of the album reminds me of ELP's early tracks, such as "Tank", "Take a pebble", "Trilogy" etc.

The reason why I didn't give 'em five stars is the somewhat irritating melo-recitation track "Ballda o 5 głodnych", probably inspired by The Doors' "Horse Lattitudes". Well, one might like it. Personally, I'm not sure... The track causes a particularly negative thing to an album, which, in spite of the fact that is compilled of five or six single tracks with their own, autonomic structure, sounds as a one, long, half-improvised piece of music, an endless river of sound, which, somewhere in the middle of the cd, breaks to reveal a mixture psychedelically chaotic noises, whispers and screams (even if the poem is quite good). The only one disadvantage of the album is that, IMHO silly, waste of a few minutes on a CD/LP, that could be spent in a better way (for example, they colud fill this space by some music).
