3 stars Turquoise is a polish progressive rock band that goes rather unnoticed in prog world, even in Poland they are almost unknown, with 3 albums released so far, they confirm with their second album relased in 2003 named Po Drugiej Stronie that they have talent . The duo female/male on this album is good and shows a mature orentation of the band into more deeper folky realms then before, but also combined with typical polish neo prog arrangements , not far from Quidam. This release has almost all ingredients to be a succesful album in this zone, good keyboards, acustic and more edgy guitar parts, beautiful and sensual female voice, specialy on Desiderata or Spotkanie with the excellent ending guitar solo, not far from almost prog metal attitude. In their roots Turqoise is a folk band, at least to my ears but combines so well the elements from this style with neo prog parts, that in the end the conclusion is , that doesn't matter in what genre are you puted the result is more then ok and even great in places. So, a pleasent album, not quite fantastic but most of the time pleasent , even I didn't catch any of the words spoken ore sung here. 3 stars , and on some parts maybe 3.5 . Fans of Quidam, Karnataka, Mostly Autumn or even Yes can listen to Turquoise without fear. Great cover art IMO.
