3 stars The 2nd album is a disappointment after the excellent debut album. In general, this is in similar style but everything is a little simpler and "polished". It's like they hold back and this makes this album sound rather unimaginative. With this album they were going much more in the neo-progressive territory (for me their 1st album is almost purely symphonic), which is an absolute no-no for me. In this album you can't hear the fullness and beautiful melodies that made their debut album stand out from nineties symphonic scene. The melodies are nice occasionally but almost the whole album just lacks really good ideas. However, this album isn't that bad as I make it sound to be. This album is just weak compared to their debut. This is neo-progressive.

There are not any really impressive tracks in this album unlike in their debut. My fave tracks are "Beznogi Maly Ptak", the piano/flute/vocals track "Pnzebudzenie" and the 14-minute "Pod Powieka". The last one of these has clearly the best ideas in this album. The problem is that these three very good tracks stand out a bit too easily from the otherwise so-so album.

Conclusion: A good album but far from essential.
