2 stars Having listening to their first two albums, I far much preferred the songs with Polish lyrics. Since this one was fully sung in their native language, I thought that I might be facing their best effort so far.

Unfortunately, this is far from it!

Actually, it is their weakest. Very average neo prog with no fantasy at all. Just as if the band had to release one album by contract: business as usual? Maybe. Anyway: it is not a great moment to share.

I am trying and having a hard time to find any highlight on this album. But I can't find any. Most tracks are on the short edge (but that's a usual factor for "Annalist"). So, don't expect any superb solo (being keys or guitar). There aren't any. Melodies are also quite absent and there is very little to retain from such a work. The last two instrumental tracks are quite useless as well to say the least.

Two stars is almost an exaggerated rating; but only one would be too harsh. You shouldn't bother though. This album is not a good one and the best thing for you to do, is just to avoid it. Their predecessor "Artemis" is their most achieved so far (even if not great).

This band is far behind some good Polish bands (most of them belonging to the neo genre).
