PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Yet another one-man band beats the path to Progressive Rock Hall of Fame. Oh wait, is this guy just playing the music he wants to play?

Honestly, I didn't even know this is actually one-man band (and guest vocals) effort, that happened only when I checked the credits. What do we have here? Extremely POLISH Neo-Prog, soft and melodic, with tasteful COLLAGE-like arrangements and CAMELish guitar solos. The whole work is very much CAMEL- influenced, though I won't dare to call it 'a clone' or 'a rip-off', it's just clearly shows roots for inspiration in this case. If you're into melodic solo-guitar-driven Neo-Prog (French MIRAGE and Spanish DRACMA spring to mind too), check this one out, you won't regret. Recommended

3 stars

This is a musical project by Polish multi-instrumentalist Kamil Konieczniak and singer Lukasz Galeziowskiejo, he owns that typical Polish melancholical undertone but his vocal contributions are very limited on this CD. The sound of Moonrise is firmly rooted in the realm of neo-progrock bands like IQ and Pendragon. The 8 compositions are very tastefully arranged with some strong breaks, lots of flowing shifting moods, a pleasant variety, a beautiful and modern keyboard sound and splendid guitarwork (from sensitive, fiery and howling runs to propulsive riffs). My favorite moments on this CD are the intense guitar sound and soaring keyboards in the opener The Island, the alternating Help Me I Can't Help Myself (intro with wonderful interplay between Grand piano and mellow keyboards and then strong work on guitar and keyboards), exciting guitarplay in In The Labyrinth Of The Dream, a spectacular break during Antidotum and a beautiful build-up with piano and keyboards to a compelling final part featuring howling guitar runs, goose bumps! I am sure this strong debut-CD will please many neo-progheads! My rating: 3,5 stars.

A personal note: this is my final review for PA

3 stars Kamil Konieczniaka is a young multi-instrumentalist who comes from the city of Klucze near Krakow.MOONRISE is his solo project,where he only recruited Lukasz Gall on vocals.Guitars,bass,drums and keys are all played by Konieczniaka himself.His first output entitled ''The Lights of a Distant Bay'' was released in 2008 on Lynx Music.

STYLE: As many solo albums by multi-instrumentalists,this is generally a quite laid-back album full of easy-listening tunes and a good balance betewen instruments.I would call this particular style ''melodic soft Progressive Rock'',where atmosphere and melody come first,over any kind of complexity.Without being a virtuoso,Kamil succeds to perform well in a series of well-crafted compositions with deep atmospheric keys,fine rhythmic parts,some decent electric solos,while the bass/drums work remains rather unnoticed.The album contains extended instrumental parts of soft musicianship and singer Lukasz Gall seems the appropriate missing piece in the puzzle with his non-accented expressive voice.

INFLUENCES/SOUNDS LIKE: Kamil seems to have been influenced a lot by the local Polish prog scene,his work reminds me a lot of SATELLITE.Parts of the album have a new age OLDFIELD-ian touch,solos are in the vein of PINK FLOYD,where at times early MARILLION come also to mind.The heavier guitar parts sometimes evoke ARENA.

PLUS: Very balanced album with hardly any boring moments.Despite its calm atmosphere,the album contains many changing tempos and alternating atmospheres.Nice guitar work by Kamil in places and great vocal work by Lukasz Gall.

MINUS: No obvious weak points,but this is unfortunately very safe music with no risks at all and propably it won't satisfy a more adventurous listener.An evident lack of originality as well.

WILL APPEAL TO: ...those after modern Polish prog,Neo Progressive and anyone,who prefers his music with heavy atmospheric and melodic doses.

CONCLUSION: This is another one of these cases,where an album makes a really pleasant listening,but doesn't leaves any great impression at the end.Nice melodic music,but very far from a trully interesting release.3 stars.

4 stars Lately I've listened to a lot of Polish Neo-Prog (unbeatable combination: ProgArchives and YouTube!) and found a whole new world of good music. The word 'new' refers only to the fact that these several bands I'm hearing for the first time, not that the musical style would be anyhow unfamiliar to me. MOONRISE is a good example of it. It's melodic, clean-sounding and well produced Neo comparable to Hogarth-era MARILLION and PENDRAGON with the emphasis on keyboards and guitars. Like the reviewers before me have pointed out, this music is "safe" and easily pleases any friend of accessible and melodic Neo-Prog. There are no bad tracks at all, everything is, in a word, pleasant. The negative side of it is that it's not very original or deeply impressive; the delighted first impression probably loses its power as time passes. It's quite obvious that the world is crowded with gifted bands like these, even if one may never come across them without the helping hand of Internet.

The core of MOONRISE are multi-instrumentalist and composer Kamil Konieczniak and singer Lukasz Gall. In this debut album Kamil plays all the instruments, which is remarkable as the music doesn't suffer at all of instrumentally narrow or thin nature. Gall's voice is pleasant, it reminds me a bit of Kim Beacon on Tony Banks's A Curious Feeling. The compositions flow nicely and carry also extended lengths (7-10 minutes) without losing the touch. There's emotion but it never reaches pathos; for example IQ packs their music with much more drama. This is mellower. But that's just fine as I often enjoy mellow prog. So, this is a very recommendable band if you enjoy safe and clean Neo-Prog. 3 stars, rounded up for the good cover art and album length (53 minutes).

3 stars I'm always quick to admire the work of a single musician to propel a CD project. As a keyboardist and project-recording wannabe, I listen with great care to work by artist like Mike Oldfield, Enigma (Michael Cretu), Hoggwash (and the various projects of Antony Kalugin), etc. This is a very ...
