4 stars Fren is a fantastic band that comes from Poland, and they Where Do You Want Ghosts to Reside for me is the debut prog album of 2020. It gives a fresh feel to prog and speaks to wider audiences of the genre. It starts with Twin Peaks a beautiful melancholic piece which builds up from dreamy Mellotron parts to introduction of guitar and Hammond. Surge for me, is the best song on the album, it is a true eclectic heaven with a great first part guitar riff and it shows the power of the band and the ability to write a complex but still a beautiful piece of music. If follows from the heavy sound to a great melodic guitar solo. The song ends with a heavy riff which sounds like it came straight from the 70's, some space elements with a blistering guitar work from Michal Chalota. Pleonasm shows the band's ability to write a great jazz piece. The last song on the album Time to Take Stones Away is the perfect end of this album, the band jet again unleashes beautiful prog, at the 2 minute mark, we have a fantastic piano part and the song just continues to grow and build perfectly until the end, a true joy to listen. This is a great band and I can't wait to hear what will they do next. 4.5
