4 stars W Galerii Czasu (Gallery of Time), the re-issue by Metal Mind, is the first Lizard album I got, quickly followed by the newer three (a lucky chance) and the official bootleg last. It took a long while afore I got around to listening to it well enough, but when I did, it was a pleasant experience.

First and foremost, I have none of UK's albums, none of ELP's albums and only one live 2CD of King Crimson's (namely "Vrooom Vrooom"), and I can't say I hear the comparison to KC, or Collage for that matter. Lizard has their own sound. The lyrics are all in Polish, so I really have no idea what Damian is singing, but it doesn't make the music any less enjoyable. In fact, it sounds quite nice. He has a pleasant voice. The rest of the instruments are handled very skillfully and none really dominates the other. Lizard knows what they're doing, alright.

To me, the tracks "Autoportret" and "Ogród Przeznaczenia" are my favorites. The rest is definate of great quality too. This re-issue features three live tracks (and a fourth hidden live track), which are a nice addition, though unfortunately not of my favorites. A nice bonus, regardless.

Conclusion? This is an excellent debut which made quite an impression on me. So much, even, that if they were to come to Holland for a gig, I would probably go too. This is an excellent addition for anyone that likes progrock.
