4 stars I discovered Czesław Niemen a little while ago when I came to live in Poland. Even if I am a music digger I never heard about this guy's music in the past.

So, I started with Enigmatic (1969) and discovered a powerful voice and a sound that reminded me of the old Deep Purple (mark I). I decided to keep listening his music.

Niemen (1971) - also known as Red Niemen - is a wonderful double album (back on the release date) that has many of the great Progressive Rock 70's sound. And it was ahead of his own time, cause was recorded on early 1971.

'Człowiek Jam Niewdzięczny' opens the album with its 20:32 and it's a delight to the ears.Czesław Niemen's voices never been so strong and his band is sharp as the best English bands.

With this album Niemen was ahead of his own time and it was just a small sign of what we would have with his next albums Strange Is This World (1972) with its 4 tracks and pretty much everything he did after that.

A must listen album if you're not a thick head when it comes to the language!
