Millenium - Ego (2013)
The ninth album from this Polish band.
Millenium is a quintet on this album with a lineup of guitars, keyboards, bass, drums and vocals.
The band had help from three other musicians who provided trumpet, sax and vocals.
I have during the last weeks reviewed some of their albums and you will find the reviews somewhere else in this blog.
Poland has a lot of really good neo-prog bands and you can include this band among them.
I have also recently discovered that the main man in Millenium, Lukasz Gall has also released some solo albums under the name Gall. I have actually reviewed one of them and you can find the review here.
Melodic, epic neo-prog is what this band gives us on this album. Fifty minutes of melodic, epic neo-prog.
The music sometimes moves in the direction of David Gilmour's Pink Floyd. Epic and a bit melancholic. The sax, trumpet and the female vocals and choirs brings it very near Pink Floyd.
There is also some pretty normal neo-prog here.
The songs are really good and they makes a good album. There is no weaknesses here. Then again, there is no great songs here too. Hence my rating of this album.
