This is the band's first album without the female vocalist/cellist Emila Derkowska. The female vocals are gone and so is the cello. They have changed their musical direction quite a bit. The music is nothing special but that's not what I expected either. The best years of this band seem to be long gone. The mostly seventies influenced neo-symphonic days seem to be history and modern influences have sneaked in. The music is now more commercial sounding and the influences from the English scene are more evident. The new sound has a lot of that so-called alternative approach which puts me off. It doesn't disturb me insuperably but I do find it rather dull. However, the biggest change is of course the new male singer Bartek Kossowicz who is surprisingly good. The lyrics are only in English unlike in the previous albums and a non-English person like me hardly notices that it isn't his native language. This album leaves me with mixed feelings. I wanted to enjoy this because all the other albums so far have been enjoyable at least to some degree.

Conclusion: The worst album by the band so far.
