4 stars Third album of this Polish nu jazz band is most matured. If previous one, released same year (recorded by Quartet) was obviously minimalistic and in fact was more soundtrack for theatrical play, than real album, this album is real full-bodied release.

Music there is really pleasant mix of downtown sax explosive noise and soft, melodic and elegant Rhodes-led nu jazz in key of Jaga Jazzist or Elephant9. Compositions are may be not very memorable,but quite different in tempos and structures. Plenty of sax over the Rhodes give pleasant and very energetic feeling to all music.

In tradition of nu jazz all music has it accent not in soloing or musical mastership of musicians, but more on atmosphere, and this work really succeeds in it.

Mostly easy accessible, tasteful music, great release for fans of progressive nu jazz. My rating is 3,5, rounded to 4.
