AllMusic Review by

After releasing a demo tape and after the great exposure of the track "Ja y Ti" on the Polish charts, Collage recorded their first work. Surprising everybody, the band was well received in Europe and afterwards an Italian release was also printed, reinforcing the band's reputation even more. Mainly featuring small and powerful tracks, whose main characteristic is the constant duel of electric guitar and keyboards, this CD is a good start for a new listener of the band. The Polish lyrics are not a hindrance for non-Polish audiences, as the music always flows melodically and the titles, written in English, give an idea of what the lyrics are saying. The title track is reminiscent of early Marillion work, with a neo-progressive drum attack mixed with well-chosen digital keyboard timbres and melodic guitar lines. Certainly this band and this CD will please Marillion's Fish-era fans.
