Review by kev rowland
4 stars It took four years from the debut for Polish Prog Metal act Retrospective to release their second, and then another five for this their third, so let's hope that they don't keep on this progression as I really don't want to wait for six years until the next one! There is a real mix of melody and metal combined with rock sensibilities and passion that makes this album stand out from many others within the genre. It is just about impossible to make a comparison with other bands, but possibly the closest would be Muse or Porcupine Tree, but even that's not fair on either band. One of the things that makes this album is the way that they have managed to bring so much space into the compositions, so much so that there are times when the instruments seem miles apart, as opposed to all being in the same room. This allows the listener to listen to the music as well as all the minute details of what everyone is doing.

This is real 'grown up' progressive music, that has so much to offer anyone who enjoys the genre. Good vocals, with all the lyrics in in strong English, this is album that deserves to be given full attention, as opposed to something being played in the background. I've lost track of the great Polish bands I've heard over the years, and only hope that these guys will gain the attention they deserve, as this is a goody.

4 stars Polish band RETROSPECTIVE was formed back in 2005, with Robert Kusik and Maciej Klimek as the principal members. they have since develop into a six man strong crew that now has one initial EP and three studio albums to their name. "Re:Search" is their most recent production, and was released in 2017 through German label Progressive Promotion Records.

On their third studio production, Polish band Retrospective create music rather far removed from what their band name might suggest. This is dark, atmospheric laden modern progressive rock with the occasional bite of progressive metal, explored in concise compositions of the kind that does have something of a "post something" feel to them in terms of mood and atmosphere. Fans of later day Riverside and those who tend to enjoy the material of bands such as Porcupine Tree and, at least to some extent, Muse, should take note of this band in general and this album in particular.
