3 stars Second album of Polish progressive nu jazz band is more mature than debut. Musicians combine jazzy winds with synths, electric guitar and acoustic rhythm section. As a result music is synth-based progressive combination of jazz and few rock elements. Sax and trumpet's soloing is almost free-form, but rhythm section gives very rock-like rhythmic structure (sometimes-with help of shredding electric guitar).

Sound is fresh with main accent on experimentation, not composition. As a result there are many new interesting sounds and rhythmic combination, but listener will hardly remember single composition after listening of full album. Producing is also raw, more at the level of demo release.

In all, really interesting, but raw album. Possibly, most experimental progressive nu jazz band from Poland at the time of release. The main problem is material - it often sounds as rehearsals, some sketches, raw blueprints. Many moments are interesting to listen, but whole album doesn't even remind finished work.

Next Robotobibok's album is more matured and better composed and finished for sure (but at the same time - less experimental).
