4 stars I must admit that I'm not that familiar with Polish progressive rock, but I'm probably right anyway if I say that ANKH has to be one of the best bands in this genre over there. QUIDAM is of course one of the better too, but they can't be compared to ANKH in any way. The band was founded in Kielce, Poland in 1991 and they have released four albums so far. Actually I don't know whether to call their music progressive or not. It' s progressive in the sense that it's experimental, but it's not the kind of music that you usually associate with progressive rock. Previously they have used violin as a part of their sound, but on their new album "Expect Unexpected" you can only hear it in one song: "loop fast violin mix". The music is very much dominated by keyboards, often programmed ones, like a hybrid between "synth bands" and progressive rock. I can't really compare them with any other bands. The album is very good although it isn't exactly within my musical frames. But I'm open-minded and ANKH is a nice new experience.

3 stars ANKH's latest album fittingly titled "Expect Unexpected" is a great mix of electronica, pop and progressive rock genres. Hard to peg this album in any one category as it offers such unique characteristics and musical forms. The opening track "The Trick" for example plays in the electronic pop space and is a very catchy tune reminding me for some reason of a modern day KRAFTWERK. The following song "Love Supreme" is a drawing from the work of KING CRIMSON. Musically ANKH is exactly that... a combination of KING CRIMSON and KRAFTWERK. Throughout the album ANKH get into some great instrumental grooves and jams. The listener is never bored listening to this album as it offers so much variety in both mood, and tempo variation. The vocals are mostly sung in Polish and generally play a sub-servant role to the instrumentation. This album is a homerun for sure and for those looking to experiment into some new earth shattering territory should definitely check this album out...
