Millenium - Reincarnations (2002)
The third album from this Polish band.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of guitars, keyboards, piano, bass, drums and vocals.
It now occurs to me that I am actually reviewing the 2010 remaster as the songs here are in English. I do not have the Polish language disc. But the music is the same, and from 2002, so I will continue with this review.
I am planning to do a handful of reviews of their albums this winter/spring and this is my first one/you can read my review of their other albums somewhere else in this blog.
Millenium is one of those bands in the Polish neo-prog scene. A scene very much a pretty big rival to the Dutch, English and German neo-prog scene.
The music is very melodic here. It also has got a lot of details and is also pretty symphonic at times. This is very much neo-prog. Gentle neo-prog.
The vocals are very good. The music can be a bit too sugary/sweet at times. It is also taking a couple of detours into pop music. The guitars and the keyboards is keeping this album honest, though.
The end result is a decent to good album who needs a couple of good songs to really shine. It is still a band I am really looking forward to explore.
