3 stars In between 3 and 4 PA stars!

Polish electronic musician Przemylaw Rudz' 2011 "Cerulean Legacy" album, although quiet unique , seems to get stuck here and there with obtrusive and not that original drum box rhythms that subdue the self created electronic proposals he brings on to this prog sub-genre.

For starters and for good, he employs rather metallic sounding atmospheres, distancing it somehow of the airy and spacy sounds usually found in prog-electronics. Other great attributes I find are the enticing melody lines and a highly achieved balance between his "zillion" synths and the guest inclusion of an electric guitar, that comes forward in a couple of the pieces.

Never minimizing that the best parts, which are no few, behold a unique musical idiom which keeps this project inches away of becoming true to PA's 4 star rating of "essential". Anyway it turns out to be a very enjoyable listening experience which any prog-electronic (and maybe other prog) audiophiles will also appreciate.

Nevertheless in a 5 long songs album, a third part, is more or less spoiled with the before mentioned synth/drum box rhythms, which remind me of Alan Parsons' "I Robot", the song not the album. Besides that, this album is close of becoming unique and essential.

Therefore 3.5 "give it a try, you won't regret it and you already have been forewarned" PA stars.
