New band of former COLLAGE guitarist Mirek Gil, apparently committed to a new project after some years of roaming. He will alternate this band with more personal work released as MR GIL, a micro chamber ensemble in which he showed great talent for composition. This debut album by the old geek in a new dress is a mainstream prog-rock (more rock than prog) project made of mid-tempo themes with standard verse, chorus and guitar solo structure, all around melodic guitar riffs. I wish there was more compositional work at the guitar; it is mainly accompanying and filling spaces. There is a violin that adds a personal touch, but it could have been used much better, for instance dueting with Gil. Anyway, one can feel the long road in the shoulders, the themes are not ambitious but they leave a good taste, asking for another play. They recruited Tomek Różycki in the voices, a good singer with a rather personal voice who won't stay for too long in the band. Pity, he did a very good job in this. Though there is no new stuff, the elements are mixed and executed with skill, nicely arranged, and searching for a young audience, enough to keep an ear on these guys, just in case they find something important to tell in the future. In the meanwhile, enjoy these nice themes, "What is love", "Needles in my brain" "Coming Down", "Seven Days" "Don't Tell Me". By the way, if you are a proghead you'll get more of this album if you listen to your favorite themes separately, every now and then. All at once may get somewhat tiring.
