5 stars The progressive rock band QUIDAM (Latin word meaning "someone, some human being") was founded in 1991. The album "Angel's Dreams" / "Sny Aniolów" was released in two language versions: Polish and English. It is the follow up to their debut album "Quidam" that was released in 1996. Their music is quiet and dreamy with catchy refrains, and performed by talented musicians. Some reminiscences that can be heard are CAMEL, GENESIS, IQ, early KING CRIMSON, PENDRAGON, PINK FLOYD and John WETTON. The female vocalist Emila Derkowska is a powerful singer, and she is giving QUIDAM a unique sound. Another thing that is adding a unique touch to QUIDAM is the use of bassoon, cello, flute, oboe and strings. The cover artwork is very beautiful with five pictures of clouds, and the music is as beautiful as the cover. My favourite tracks are "Angels Of Mine", "An Apple Dream", "Cheerful" and the epic track "Behind My Eyes". Two of the songs are singed in Polish, and that is "Awakening (Dawn Of Hope)" and " There Is Such A Lonesome House". There are two tracks that keeps the album from getting the highest rating, and that is "Little Bird with No Legs" and "One Small Tear". This is a high quality album from Poland, and I strongly recommend it. The French label Musea distributes the English version.
