5 stars PINN DROPP is a new progressive rock outfit from Warsaw I rapidly went on fire after getting in touch. It was their initial EP exactly, consisting of three appetizer, which all were intended to be part of the regular debut. However, it took about a year until the album release became official finally. They have slightly reworked the songs in between. Eh, in the meanwhile it felt that familiar, liking this more and more while listening again and again. So I was a bit surprised, couldn't assume that this ever might be a case of revision. On Unresolved for example cries of seagulls are more present, maybe intended to serve some native East Sea coast vibe more intensively? The songs are nothing else than refined once again, though yet not overproduced. That proves they are acting with carefulness, hence I'm still amazed. Hey, old or new, we even are in the comfortable situation to compare in the end!

PINN DROPP are providing rock songs with finesse and profoundness, quite a revelation for a prog aficionado who is keen on modern heavy progressive stuff. Clever song writing, highly melodic, this is on the same level with the latest 'Art Of Illusion' album. Special kudos to guitarist Piotr Sym, who has wide influence concerning concept and compositions. Well, probably intended, do you like to argue about the album title? Rather contradictive, is it meant in the meaning of 'Nobody Is Perfect'? Or simply used as a catchy phrase? Anyway, 'Perfectly Flawed' is a well thought out sound collection with nearly 80 minutes running time. Entertaining all the way through, without exception. Arranged both with complexity and super catchiness. Perfectly balanced due to a proper blend of rocking parts as well as restrained moments featuring prospering acoustic guitars and piano lines.

Mateusz Jagiello's vocals are refined with some effects and special arrangements on top. And furthermore, at some point it's definitely worth it to concentrate on the band's rhythm section, speaking of Pawel Wolinski (bass) and drummer Dariusz Piwowarczyk. The latter also involved in defining the shape of the band's sound right from the beginning. Thumbs up again! As for that here is a new rounded affair at start at the end of the year 2018. No need to highlight a special song, as the whole issue runs like one extendend epic. That will also include the cinematic bonus track, which solely is available when it comes to the album's digital version. Since the Riverside lift-off I have noticed a lot of promising heavy prog bands hailing from Poland. PINN DROPP definitely are capable of taking the lead, if they will continue in this way. Perfect? Yes! Flawed? No! Perfectly Flawed? ... maybe. Time will tell, and you will decide. Do not miss this!
