5 stars If there is something that I`m proud of living in Poland it is surely our prog scene. Mayby it is not very wide but it has very good quality. We have SBB, Riverside, Collage,Induktu... and Abraxas of course. As a band from 80` and 90` it must be similar to some others. We can hear Marillion, Van der Graaf Generator and mayby Twelfth Night... Adam Łassa is our Polish Peter Hammill, mayby not as good as Master but his way of singing is also very emotional and unpredictable. Lyrics are sang in Polish and are about... I don`t know.. anyway. "like something out of Edgar Allan Poe":). If it comes to skill of playing I would compare it to Marillion, great keyboards, emotional gituars, strong but simultaneously soft bass and great drumming which suits here very well. As in case Marillion of Van der Graaf Generator the music is very veracious and this is a real strength of Abraxas. Once again we have here one of the best debits in progressive rock, just as in case King Crimson or recently Wobbler. The music is very progressive and may constitute an example of what the prog is about.

I can`t distinguish highlights because ALL songs from the album sound GREAT!!! Very important: If you don`t like this album for the first time listening, try to give it second chance because (as it is in majority prog songs) Abraxas demands patience. Only after few listenings you may truly appreciate this Music. This information is also included in booklet but it is written in Polish as the lyrics.

To conclude: A MUST for anyone who likes prog Music. You will not be dissapointed.


Wobbler | 5/5 |
