Retrospective biography
RETROSPECTIVE is a progressive rock band formed in 2005 in Leszno, Poland. It started off with Robert KUSIK (drums) and Maciej KLIMEK (guitars). Shortly after, Alan SZCZEPANIAK (guitars) was introduced to the band during one of the rehearsals. His skills and passion for unconventional playing earned him a way in. In April 2005 the bassist was found - Lukasz MARSZALEK, a great fan of IRON MAIDEN's The Trooper. During theit first performances, then still under the bame HOLLOW, they met Beata LAGODA who took her place behind the keyboard. That's when HOLLOW's direction evolved, becoming more progressive, inspired by KING CRIMSON, DREAM THEATER, PINK FLOYD and Polish RIVERSIDE. In February 2006 the band found their singer, Jakub ROSZAK whose warm deep voice leaves a defining mark on the band's side, resulting in a sound somewhere inbetween RIVERSIDE and PEARL JAM.

After a 2006 demo and the 2007 Spectrum of the Green Morning EP, the band released their debut Stolen Thoughts in 2008, it's a concept album the growth of a child into adulthood the loss of imagination, innocence and carelessness that comes it.

Review by lagos

5 stars this album is splendid in the vein of riverside , vocals texture almost the same but ( duda is so great with his voice ) , also , retrospective play in the same register , strong drums , powerful guitars ( less melodic than riverside ) but the fact is : real fusion with all the musicians to produce an great album ( like the 2 others ,but this is certainly the most influenced by riverside ); no weak points on their work , creativity & sound with impressive instrumentals so ,if you like riverside ; it's for you ,sure you enjoy with marvelous opus ; ps: the 2 others albums are great too but prefer this one , 5 stars for me ( even if i don't like put number on art creations ;;;;

4 stars Polish band RETROSPECTIVE started out back in 2005, formed by Robert Kusik and Maciej Klimek. Since then the band has expanded to a total of six members, and they now have one EP and two full length albums to their name. "Lost in Perception" is the most recent of these, and was released by the German label Progressive Promotion Records in the late fall of 2012.

Retrospective's second full length CD "Lost in Perception" is a production that should find favor amongst most with a taste for accessible, melodic progressive rock. Fans of bands like Porcupine Tree will perhaps be the main and key audience, although I suspect that quite a few followers of neo progressive rock might also find this disc to be a tantalizing and intriguing experience overall.

Review by BrufordFreak

3 stars This is a band that I had VERY high expectations for after falling under their spell with their first and second albums, 2007's EP, Spectrum of the Green Morning, and 2008's Stolen Thoughts, but this output is sorely disappointing. The music lacks any interesting development or emotional impact. There is plenty of solid heavy prog, each song seems to constantly threaten to explode, but they rarely do. Each vocal from veteran Jakub Roszak is often set up as the highlight of each song--and yet it is not: the vocals never sock you or rock you; instead they are full of unrealized potential energy and Roszak's EDDIE VEDDER/MARCO GLÜHMANN- imitative presence--yet nothing here approaches the power and spine-tingling, haunting vocals of either of Spectrum of the Green Morning's classics, "Enemy World Vision" or "Regret and Frightened Child"--both of which rival anything fellow countrymen and Heavy Prog brothers RIVERSIDE have ever done. (IMHO.) With repeated listens I have discovered many subtleties that might be considered indicative of 'progress,' 'development' or 'maturation' of the band, yet after four years I can't help but have hoped for more. More surprises, more twists, more shifts, more. Perhaps it's in the lyrics (to which, as always, I am oblivious).

Album high points: 2. "Huge Black Hole" (3:59) (8/10); 6. "Tomorrow Will Change" (6:19) (8/10), and; 9. "Swallow the Green Tones" (10:34) (8/10).

3.5 stars, rated down for being non-essential.

Review by kev rowland
Special Collaborator Crossover Team

4 stars I don't know why it has taken these Polish proggers four years since 'Stolen Thoughts', but at last they are back with their new album. What we have here is a solid combination of prog rock, prog metal, classic rock and a host of other influences. Jakub Roszak has a very strong voice and can either drive a song along or be more reflective as on "Lunch" where he duets with Beata Łagoda. They mix Muse with Porcupine Tree in a way that is immediate and inviting to the proghead, while never losing any of the power and thrust of a hard rock band. They can slow it down or speed it up, yet always with the vocals at the heart of what they are doing.

In many ways this is a very mature piece of work, layered and thoughtful with strong production. This is yet another album that proves that prog music is very much alive and well in Poland, and luckily their website can be read by those who prefer English at www.retrospective.pl . Sheer class from beginning to end.

Review by BrufordFreak

4 stars Finally! An album whose absence from the PA radar is shocking to me! "Between RIVERSIDE and PEARL JAM" is so accurate! Try the free downloads, "Regret and Frightened Child" (9/10) and "Enemy World Vision" (10/10) from www.last.fm.com and you will discover an absolutely amazing sound of this somehow not-yet-'discovered' band from Poland! The 2007 EP shows signs of 'imaturity'--mostly in production and lack of variation in composition and sound--though song 6, "Have in Mind" (7/10) is different in its keyboard (a poor-man's electric piano) intro & foundation, and song 3 "Pink Elephant Missed" (6/10) is also different in that it has a more rock'n'roll feel to it--like PEARL JAM trying to do LED ZEPPELIN. Song 2, "Some Kind of Hope" (6/10) sounds a bit too much like "Regret..." and "Enemy..." though is flawed in its having less polish in the recording mix. Song 4, "Waking Up in the ZOO," (8/10) is quite good with tight RIVERSIDE-like drums and bass and an interesting ALEX LIFESON/RUSH-sounding guitar cranking out the power chords. The vocalist is excellent--very much like a cross between Eddie Vedder and Mariuz Duda (which becomes more Eddie Vedder-like in their next album)--though the lyrics of several of these songs could use a little boost. This is definitely a band that needs/deserves to be heard. If you like RIVERSIDE, you will love this album! Highly recommended. 4 stars.
