3 stars A transition betweem Millenium trilogy which started with Vocanda and ended with Numbers and a taster of new style which started with Exist. Millenium took more aggresive edge and on the other hand more epic breath. And this decision was right. With this EP Millenium gave us 2 gems and one small failure. First gem, opener Epilogue, is a conclusion of the stories told in a trilogy (of course there is no happy end, this is prog rock). The whole band shines - guitar of Piotr Płonka and keyboards of Ryszard Kramarski are omnipresent and the solos are passionate. So is the vocal, I've never heard such passion in Millenium singing. The second track, Dream about Aliens joined together Talk To Aliens from Numbers with Aliens And Me is a realization of great idea. What on album was just another electronic track was transformed into very reflectional, to some extent even mystical piece of music. And another great example of how interesting Łukasz Gall's voice could be, this time it is subtle. However, this idea of enriching old track did not work with Wake up John!, vocal version of closing track of Numbers ...And The Big Dream Of Mr Sunders. What an album was aggresive coda was spoiled with not-so-passionate vocals and lyrics. Overall, the album is very clearly produced. For such EPs the grade of 2 stars seems to be proper, but I will judge it higher, with 3 stars - this album is not just for fans of the band, but not necessarily essential to appreciate the band, especially after release of Exist. What the hell, it is even 3, 5 half stars :).
