I believe this Polish band falls in the neo-prog sub-genre although the band is not exactly a clone of the English groups. The band has a good theatrical vocalist Adam Lassa whose vocals suit perfectly to the group. The guitarist Szymon Brzezinski is very good but for me his playing is uninspired in this album apart from a few nice solos (like in the song "Pokuszenie"). I have the same problem with many other guitarists of similar groups so in that sense he is not an exception. The other musicians are much more pleasant for my ears. This album is recommended for fans of neo-prog who would like a little more imaginative music from this particular sub-genre.

The best tracks are "Michel de Nostredame - Mistrz z Zalon", "Czakramy" and "Pokuszenie". The rest of the tracks are not bad but a little weaker in comparison. There is also an English sung version of this album and it is titled Prophecies.

Conclusion: This is a strong neo-prog effort.
