4 stars Who's not touched by violin on Tumor please raise your hand. Nobody ? As I supposed. Strange thing is that even Poland and Czech Republic are neighbors, their new prog scene has many masterpieces, while ours has literally nothing, except few unoriginal death metal bands (you can love it, but they sounds basically the same).

But here, my secret passion (heavy instruments, guitars, style of playing drums, strong vocal without growling + strings) came through. Same thing I heard on latest maudling of the well album and was excited by it. There's something unnatural about this combination, so beautiful, that it exceeds Earth limits. And who knows what's beyond. But this sound fits there. It basically like records which reached this perfection without using unnatural (and forcefully uneasy) distort sounding music. Is it a crime to like those, which are pleasant and at the same time masterpieces/good pieces more than those, where I don't feel safe when listening them, which are uneasy for me to listen ?

This record sounds fresh, mostly due to piano, not synths under each track. Guitar sounds differently in each track, vocals are fine for me (maybe not so good for others, this is very personal thing, same as with languages) Only weird thing (but OK, just for me weird) is that Polish language sounds like Russian to me, similar sounding use of ?č, y and accents. But that can't influence anything, it wouldn't be fair.

5(-), because I was deciding if to give 4-5 and finally good feelings overweighted the bad ones (by bad here I in fact mean 4 star). Very pleasant surprise.
