2 stars This Polish band certainly has been consistant at releasing albums over the years. This is their 10th release since their debut from 1975. This one was released in 1997 and it's clear that this is a talented band when it comes to creating music. While the debut was excellent and something most Prog fans would enjoy, they've pretty much become makers of poppy tunes at this point. I bet they are popular though as they do have a talent for this style of music. Vocals are in Polish.

"Takie Tango" is laid back with guitar and vocals. It picks up with a beat as the guitar comes and goes. "Radio Taxi" opens with organ, guitar and a beat as the vocals join in. He's passionate 1 1/2 minutes in, in fact I bet you can see the veins in his forehead at this point. "Jeden Raz" is piano and reserved vocals. It does get fuller and we get passionate vocals late. "Gdzie Jest Ta Krew" is catchy with vocals. "Strefa Polcienia" has this relaxed guitar and sound as the vocals join in. Passionate vocals at times and they are quite moving. This guy can sing.

"Glodny" has a good rhythm and the guitar is expressive as the vocals join in. Good stuff. Nice guitar solo 4 minutes in. "Nic Nie Boli, Tak Jak Zycie" sounds good with the higher pitched vocals. It's heavier after 1 1/2 minutes as contrasts continue. "Szukamy Sie" puts the focus on the vocals in this relaxed offering. Not a fan. "Przegrywac..." is catchy but laid back with vocals. It's fuller 1 1/2 minutes in as contrasts continue. "Bez Aplauzu" is uptempo with vocals and it's heavier too. "Po Tej Stronie Nadziei" has organ and a beat as the guitar then vocals join in. "Nowa Wleza Babel" ends it with strings and fragile vocals. Not a fan.

A tough one to recommend because it's so straight-forward with all these shorter tracks.
