3 stars This album pointed on promising future of this young, progressive, sensational band from Poland. First, I was very impressed with songs "Out of Myself", and "Loosing Heart". I have listened to these two songs over and over. This music was something new for me, and I was very excited. I got this album very hard, and it was pleasant experience to me. This is quite solid beginning for the band, which will give us many excellent albums, I believe. All songs are unique, melodic and atmospheric (with excellent keyboards that create all atmosphere), and singer/bassist plays unique and strong bass lines, so any fans of good bass will enjoy this album. Guitarist has nice, fruity, emotive sound, influenced by guitarists as Gilmour and Petrucci. He creates rich colors of guitar, and all songs are full of images and colored fine. This group really hunted me to be very excited about their music, but I tried, and later managed to figure out some weak sides of this. First is that the production is not the best. Well, as this was their first album, and they recorded it in very hard circumstances, it is to be expected that this is not top of modern production. But, believe me, this young band is very progressive, for their huge progress toward the second album. All elements got better, production, drumming, guitars, it is like they are searching for themselves with this record, and prepare for making of future masterpieces. Another weak side here is that I did not like vocal arrangements, but this element is progressing too. In their second album, vocals become better, and production stronger, as well as drums. This band will play essential role in future progressive world, which makes me looking forward for their next album.
