3 stars The band's fourth album delivers catchy prog rock songs again, for what it's worth. Obviously Wojciech Ciuraj (guitar, vocals) is taking the lead when it comes to this outfit from Poland. While alternating between quartet and quintet during the recent years, he is representing the main constant by all means. With Pawel Krawiec 'Colloids' now features a second guitarist. Interestingly enough their facebook account still is provided with the extension 'We Are Looking For A Drummer'. Don't know if we should take this seriously. Well, all their productions are showing Kacper Kucharski aboard, though yet it's Jakub Dabrowski who has occupied the drum kit.

Not really unusual, especially when it comes to bands hailing from this country, there are two versions available which differentiate due to the language. What we get is a technically flawless album, art rock flavoured, with some singer/songwriter appeal plus psychedelic touch. Unfortunately and surprisingly, for me the album title track will not start a fire really, hence belongs to the weaker songs. On the other hand at least Sisyphus' Sons showing some mandolin input, Jottings and To Walk On The Water are top-notch compositions, highly enjoyable. Comfortable vocals and great guitar work, including the bass. Keyboards are having a minor role. If you like easy to grasp rock songs I can recommend this one without any restriction. 3.5 stars.
