2 stars So, is this album an "Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music"?

I mean certainly not! Good recorded, beautifully packed consumer product, nothing more.

Four young Polishmen created their debut album with high-hearted ambitions, but they donīt succeed to bring something new, innovative, surprising to their music, unfortunately. The band stay behind on well-tried musical procedures without impressing its own face here.

What the music contains? Quite good collection of ordinary kind of Neo-Prog with all its ordinary cliches. It means: nice, melodic, little mysterious vocals, metal scented guitar (playing all along the same riffs and solos around), ubiquitous keyboards (usually plays in semibreves), solid drums with frequent using of double bass drum. Only bass guitar is inexpressive, staying in background (whatīs a pity!). Not enough strong, easy forgettable tunes.

Well. There are a few songs with complicated rhythm structure here (e.g. "Above Clouds", "Spirit of Age"). This is just little lucid moments of the promising, but staying-in- middle-of-the-road debut.

I hope Disperseīs second album will be truly better.
