4 stars This was one of those albums I bought after reading about the band on this site, and downloading the free track above. The whole album is beautifully produced, and the tracks are consistently good. The sound is powerful, yet melodic, and the musicianship is of a high quality. Every track has something to merit it, and the keyboards and guitar work are especially appealing. Guitarist Mirek Gil does play in a manner that is more than reminscent to Steve Hackett at times, and this is certainly not a bad thing in my book, as Hackett is my absolute fave. Best tracks for me are the opener, 'Heroes Cry' 'The Blues' and 'Living In The Moonlight'. But all are good and different people will have different favourites - always a sign of a good album. The vocals are in English, with little trace of accent except on the final track. The drummer, Szadkowski, is the main songwriter and lyricist, and a good job he does too. He's not a not a bad player either! All in all, an album I would recommend to anyone who likes lush, melodic symphonic prog, not particularly daring, but enjoyable. A worthy addition to anyone's collection.
