Don't you just love those lost one album wonders? Actually this one isn't exactly that. It's more like a band that changed its direction into non prog before releasing their debut record. This lineup here only managed to recorded some demos back in the early 80s before deciding to shift into a different format (progg-ish hard rock) that's present on their proper studio albums. What you hear on this compilation is a good slice of that classic early neo sound. It is what their debut album could've been had it been released in around 1980-1981. It prefectly captures that zeitgeist in my opinion. There's a lot of of synth swirls, guitar solos and Crumar Multiman-S washes. The melodies are well written and they are hummable, which is good. It's all very symphonic in the approach. However, I'm afraid the odd time signature lovers might be a little disappointed. The only problem I have with the songs is that they very rarely venture beyond that top line that makes good music great music. Just a tad too blandish from time to time. Still... very solid stuff. The vocals are good, considering the entire thing was recorded in only two sessions (according to an interview with Maciej Januszko) and the vocals were added at the last minute. The highlight of this album for me is the epic Atlantis Suite with its clearly defined multi-part structure that adds some really sweet mood changes to the mix. I'm gonna recommend this. Good album.
