Review by wiz_d_kidd

4 stars PA lists this band as Neo Prog, but I find them to be straddling the line between full-on prog and jazz/rock fusion. Indeed, their own characterization (from Bandcamp) has them tagged as experimental, hard rock, jazz fusion, progressive rock, ambient, art rock, instrumental, jazz rock, progressive metal, and Poland! Interestingly, I can find elements of all of those genre's on this fabulous gem of an album!

The album consists of 8 tracks spanning more than 66 minutes. Two of the tracks, Prognose and Eridanus, were previously released as an EP entitled "This Shit's Got to Go". It took another 3-1/2 years before the full LP was released.

I find this album to have a wonderful balance of musical elements. Guitar, keyboards, bass, drums, and saxophone all shine in the multispectral prog spotlight. At times, the guitarist, Jan Mitora, is reminiscent of David Gilmore. Other times, he sounds like Pat Metheny. Reportedly playing an Ibanez S2540 NT, an Aria Pro II semi-hollow, and an electro-acoustic Cort SJ-7X -- he is highly skilled and captivating. The keyboardist, Krzysztof Walczyk, plays Hammond organ, piano, and a variety of synths. Nearly hidden among the jazzier and classically influenced keyboard passages, you'll hear elements of Klaus Schulz and Tangerine Dream. On track 5 (Eridanus) you'll hear their guest saxophonist, Michał Szafraniec, channeling Didier Malherbe in a wonderful solo near the end of the piece.

Aside from the spoken words ("This Shit's Got to go") at the very end of Eridanus, there are no vocals. With ample groove, elements of surprise, and a strong sense of forward-leaning composition, there is no need for vocals in this work. It ranks a strong 4 stars in my book. Listen and purchase on Bandcamp!

Thanks to DamoXt7942 for the artist addition.
