This is a brilliant album and musicians involved shine and their lead singer is excellent
May 31, 2013
This fine album opens with a wonderful instrumental "Into Unknown" build on a beautiful acoustic guitar theme, the rest of the band chipping in and on top a gorgeous female voice, excellent stuff! Like their fellow country men Riverside..Archangelica have a heavier side to their music, which they promptly show on next track "Like a Drug" displaying a much heavier side mixed with sudden softness!! Luckily they don't get to heavy overall, but stay with their fine blended formula of soft and hard. I did not know of these guys but I am certainly glad I do now. This is a brilliant album and musicians involved shine and their lead singer is excellent (no accent whatsoever!!) also they have a knack for great themes (earhangers) several of the tunes/songs herein will come back to you (just like I, out of the blue hummed one of their songs in the bath this morning) after repetitious spins!! So another great outing from a great Polish progband that I heartily recommend to any friend of great prog with said and above mentioned qualities! Now go check em out - why don't you?!!
All bands/artists and all moozik aficionados, if you have not joined Planet Of Prog on their fb page yet you might want to join them here too. They are unbiased, very honest sharing the music from the greats to the indie starting artists and what I love the most about them, there is no negativity (you'll not find any pompous selfrightous know it all full of know better and how sermons on their reviews) no matter who you are, all their reviews the bands are treated with utmost dignity even if the review is not most favorable, that review will be honest, not pompous and most in awe respectful of the artist's efforts. I love them, love this site. Join if you want to,I like them a lot!
