Peter Pan - Days (2007)
The one and only album from this Polish band.
This band was a quartet with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums, keyboards and vocals.
It is my understanding that this is a sort of a Polish supergroup with members from Satellite and other notable bands from Poland.
It was also always meant as a one-off project, just to record these songs. Which is a good thing for those of us into this kind of music.
"This kind of music" means neo-prog. Polish neo-prog. Yes, that may be a genre too. Or maybe not. The music here is neo-prog with a lot of progressive metal influences.
Take one slice of Satellite and add some progressive metal. Then add some catchy, groovy rock too and you get this album.
The sound is very fresh. This forty minutes long album is indeed a very refreshing album. The prog metal is just adding nice colours to this album. I am not a fan of prog metal, but I like the prog metal on this album.
The basis is neo-prog though and this is a neo-prog album. The vocals are not the best. But they are still good and does not harm this album.
The end result is a very refreshing album with some very good songs. My only gripe with this album is the lack of any great songs. But this is still a very good album. It is recommended.
