3 stars Where should I start here? The version I have heard is the Polish version of this album called Pod Niebem Czas (it could be that there even isn't an English sung version). The vocals are in Polish and I don't have any problem with that. I always prefer that the progressive groups sing in their native language. The problem is the music itself. It's really sad to hear this Polish band go worse with each album. This 3rd studio album hasn't basically much to offer. It is far from the excellent debut album and it is perhaps even more to the light prog direction that the band adopted with their 2nd album Sny Aniolow. I can even hear some new age influences. Not really something that would make my socks turn on my feet. All in all, I'm disappointed with this album and with the direction Quidam has taken. Still, I believe it is quite good in this style of music but it just pales in comparison to the early material. The only track that deserves a special mention is the first one called "Letter from the Desert". It is a good instrumental and also the one that is the most progressive.

This was apparently the last album with the singer/cellist/oboist Emila Derkowska.

Conclusion: Good but for the most part for fans only.
