5 stars A wonderful piece of music ! This is the debut album of Polish prog band, which is musically closer rather to Camel's style than any prog-metal band. Clear, full of space and feelings, incredibly fantastic ("angelic") voice of female vocalist Emilia Derkowska, very good guitar sound of Maciek Meller, flute passages by Ewa Smarzyńska - that's the short summary of what goes on here. LP starts from one of the most beautiful and sad song I've ever heard - "Sanktuarium" (all lyrics are in Polish) - a very personal one for Emilia, with (forgive me) "gently weep" of Meller's guitar. The next are superb too, especially "Chocbym...", "Nocne widziadla" and "Plone" - musically miscellaneous and complexed, but still melodious and clear for your mind and soul. What a pity that Emilia decided to leave the band after the release of Quidam's 3rd studio album - "Pod niebem czas" (Time Beneath The Sky")! A must for responsive fans of "delicate" prog, not recommended for fans of prog-metal, who will have nothing to do with it, I suppose.
