3 stars This is the first album I've heard by Millenium, who have carved out a place for themselves in the front rank of the Polish neo-prog scene. Like their predecessors on that scene such as Collage, the influence of Marillion (and, to a lesser extent, Pendragon) is a big factor in the music, and like many bands they also draw a lot on late-period Pink Floyd motifs to add a slightly different spin to proceedings.

The concept of the album - a cynical lawyer gets in a car crash and enters a coma, during which he has visions of himself on trial to assess whether he's wasted his life - is interesting enough, and the musical backing is decently executed, so on the whole this seems to be a very good place to start exploring this band's music. At the same time, I find it rather wearing at times - for example, the refrain on The Price of Her Sad Days is overused and gets incredibly irritating over the course of the song, and that's hardly the only piece which gets repetitive and outstays its welcome.
