4 stars There were already signs by what I read and heard that this successor band of Collage would be better than Mr. Gil, the short single project by Mirek Gil. I didn't really like his album Alone back then so I wanted to make sure that this was something better before I took my shot at it. The other successor of Collage is of course Satellite and for several years now I consider that band one of the best ever.

I will not describe every song this time but will give a rating for each song and an evaluation in the end. 1. Time 3,5* 2. Tumor 3,75* 3. What they want (is my life) 3,75* 4. Mystery is closer 3,25* 5. You & me 3,25* 6. Danny had a neighbour 3,5* 7. Memories 4* 8. Unfaithfull 4* 9. Together 3,25* (three bonustracks not counting for the total score: 10. I wish I could 3,25* 11. Holy Night 3,75* 12. Best wishes for Robert Fripp 3,25*).

All in all a positive score for Believe's second album. The violin gives a special atmosphere to the songs and makes it sound completely different than Collage. What remained is the almost folkish Polish sound and is in Believe stronger present than in most other Polish bands. What I miss on this album is a highlight, some mindblowing song that makes you really eager to play the album. It's more of a consistent album with nice songs in a recognizable, typical style. Still I'm surprised that so far all the prog reviewers really love this album and value it highly. Because although I'm also postive and will give it 4 stars in the end I can't really say I'm ecstatic about it (3,6).
