3 stars A friend of mine gave me this album, but I must say I was not too interested at the time. Although I am a big fan of Collage, I really did not think too much about a guitarrist solo album, usually a showcase for his virtuosity or self indulgence, or both. Fortunatly my friend was right. Alone is an exception. Most of the songs have good vocals and many resemble Collage, but not only that. Actually Mirek Gil did make quite a colletction fo songs, varied, interesting and very well played and sung. The quality of the tracks also varies a lot, but they are all above average. The production is adequate (actually better than early Collage albums), the players are good ones. Sometimes you may miss the chemistry of Gil's old band had, but again it should point out that this is not really a group record, even if it sounds like it. And for that reason alone you should give this album a try. If you're a fan of Collage, or neo prog in general I strongly recommend it. A nice solo surprise.
