3 stars Budka Suflera may be more famous for their later rock/pop records but they had good prog-rock moments on their debut album. Not as ambitious and focused as SBB, Collegium Musicum or Blue Effect, Budka Suflera retained quite raw sound in 1975 unlike many more polished prog-rock bands in Western Europe, Italy and Sweden at that time.

Vocals are quite expressive and original sung in Polish. You will hear some rock, hard-rock and even light soul shades in the singer's vocal.

Instrumentally, there is not very much complexity but I would highlight drums and keyboards that some more progressive than other instruments. The guitar drives the sound more into hard rock/hard prog direction.

The weakness of this album is the average compositional power and incoherence since the band tried to try multiple directions.

Bonus tracks are surprisingly good, enjoy the last track "Najdluzsa droga", which is one of the most progressive tracks on the album supported by saxophone, clavinet and epic motive.

Another highlight is the epic 19-minute track with shifts in the speed and I love the synth solo in the middle.

Recommended to all that like exploring prog from less traditional countries.
