4 stars At about 18 months ago I witnessed a gig from this Polish formation during a progrock festival in Paris (with thanks to Alucard), they were supported by Eclat and Sensitive To Light. I was impressed by their modern and pleasant sound (between melodic rock and neo-prog) and the warm presentation of the singer. Listening to this new album I conclude that this is their most mature and balanced effort since Quidam made their debut halfway the Nineties!

Remarkably in the first two sings are the longing vocals, tasteful keyboards and fiery guitar work. Then we can enjoy the long and alternating Depicting Colours Of Emotions, from a slow rhythm with warm vocals and flute to swinging with propulsive guitar play and sensational solos on organ and guitar, very exciting! The other five tracks also contain that pleasant, often warm climate with a tasteful colouring of the instruments like a break with flute and percussion in Of Illusions, a strongly build-up guitar solo and a powerful saxophone solo in We Lost, the distinctive Fender Rhodes piano in One Day We Find and swirling Hammond organ, fluent synthesizer flights, a sparkling flute solo and in the end a fiery guitar solo in the swinging ... But Strong Together.

My conlcusion: after all those years Quidam is still alive and proggin' and they have treated their fans on an outstanding new album!
