3 stars BELIEVE is a new project led by Polish guitarist Mirek Gil. Known as a former COLLAGE guitarist, Gil released his first solo album under the name MR.GIL in 1998 (couple of good tracks but nothing more). This time it seems he has a band – with first COLLAGE singer Tomek on vocals and guitar! Besides arrangements feature wonderful violin solos, whose sound is a good support to excellent Gil’s work. His guitar solos are top-notch just like in his early COLLAGE days, and he never looses his signature sense of melody. BELIEVE’s music is not far from COLLAGE’s genius “Moonshine”, but heavier (think of RIVERSIDE) and less complex (I dare not say 'less inspired'). There’s a lack of Woitek Szadkowski’s hand as a composer and drummer; most songs from the second half of the album (except for the title epic) are rather dull and filler-like in nature. Still, numbers like “What is Love” and “Pain” make this record a desirable addition to any collection. If you’re into melodic Polish Prog, get this one immediately!
