Believe - This Bread Is Mine (2009)
The third album from this Polish band.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums, flute, violin, keyboards and English vocals. Two guest musicians contributed xtra guitar and some cello.
I reviewed their second album Yesterday Is A Friend earlier this month and liked that album. The review is here and it also has a link to their debut album which I reviewed some years ago.
One year after the release of Yesterday Is A Friend, there has been some changes in personell and music on the follow up album The Bread Is Mine.
The music is still neo-prog. But the music is much more mellow. That goes for the vocals and for the more implemenation of the violin. Their sound reminds me about Gazpacho at times. That means the band has moved pretty close to what Marillion sounded on Brave.
There are also some hints of melancholic pop and some post-rock here too. The music is very melodic with some good guitar solos too.
This one hour long album has eleven medium long songs. I regard this album as one long piece of music as the songs floats into each other. One hour long melancholic melodic piece of music.
The end result is a good album which stands out from the rest of the neo-prog scene because of the frequent use of violin. It is well worth checking out this album and this band.
