4 stars Neo-prog is quite new musical area for me, and it's interesting to find out pleasing albums containing musical styles which have not opened before. I got myself a copy sung in Polish language, and I think feels better choice so I can focus to melodies and music, escaping the meanings of the lyrics totally. The vocalist has really beautiful voice, and it is really pleasant to listen her sing. Music is shamelessly sweet, romantic, positive and either heals the nihilism or drives one away. Flute and clear synth driven rock sounds resemble little the sound texture of 1990's Jethro Tull recordings. Round bass tones are powerfully front, and this instrument is something I like here quite much in addition of the singing. Drums play quite straightforwardly and have soft tones, though there are some more unconventional lines like in long song "Pod powieką", which is most progressive of these songs probably. The guitar is not also very loud, and solos are quite short, both acoustic and electric guitars are used. Calm ethereal sections soothed the easy to listen pop/rock style of the group, which probably resides in the grey zone of progressive and commercial music, containing elements from both. The pop side of later Yes recordings are an association for me, and the compositions aren't as simple as average radio played songs have, and they gain some length from instrumental passages. Songs have good quality ratio, and album is fun to listen from beginning to end without skipping any songs. I really like the romantic tune at the end, "Przebudzenie (świt nadziei)", reprising little the beginning theme of the album. So, a very good record in my opinion to listen, if one wishes to get happy and is receivable for the style of the music. Would be fun to find this on vinyl, if such exists?
