4 stars What stunning beauty emanates from this disc! Whether neo-prog or whatever, it's just gorgeous melodies coming from all instruments, especially the guitars, flutes, and the female vocalist. (It even has an awesome guest appearance from compatriot and COLLAGE guitarist extraordinaire Mirek Gil on the second song, "Chocbym..." [7:07] [14/15]) The arrangements and pastoral feel of all of these songs remind me a lot of IONA, last year's CICCADA debut, and 1970s GENESIS (probably due to the strong presence of flute). I don't really have a favorite cuz I love them all. This one is a definite keeper; it will probably stay on my play list--on heavy rotation--for quite a while. I wouldn't be surprised if it even climbs into my personal all-time top 100 (or, at least 200), it's that gorgeous, and that interesting. I'm so glad I was finally able to find it! What amazing music there is to be found coming out of Poland and Eastern Europe! Thank you, ProgArchives! A definite masterpiece of absolutely beautiful music. 5 stars.
