    Millenium

    MILLENIUM is one of the best prog-bands hailing from Poland. They take some influences from the likes of Genesis, Camel, Pink Floyd, Marillion, Pendragon, IQ, Arena, to name a few.

    If you enjoy such style of music, then this original progressive flavored outfit from Krakow will knock your socks off. Very fine, complex musical arrangements complimented by story-telling lyrics and tight, long tracks with plenty room for elaborated solos on both guitar and keyboards. A tight back-up plus a decent singer...

    In 2010 Millenium have released their first ever live DVD like part of a box set alongside a double CD.

    This day I've got a packet with 'Puzzles'. Fantastic album indeed. After some careful litening I will give more detailed resume.

    I was indeed curious to hear the new Millenium album. After I gave ‘Puzzles’ several spins, I must conclude that - the improvement in the production department is spectacular. Polish guys deserve lots of credit for the courage of pushing their own boundaries and exploring new territories. The material sounds fresh, more varied, more dramatic, more progressive and more creative. Compositions of high quality simply can’t go wrong! As far as the songs are concerned, ‘Puzzles’ might well be one of the best Millenium albums! Definitely, their greatest release since ‘Reincarnations’ (2002). And I wouldn’t be very surprised if I’d eventually like it even better…



    All in all, ‘Puzzles’ is an amazing album, which definitely be liked by many prog-rock fans.

    Two years in the making, 'Ego' is now ready!
    Some previous albums put Millenium into the top three currently active Polish progressive bands. And this new CD enhances their high position. The release is full blown affair with beautiful keyboard passages and textures, sweeping guitar work, crisp rhythm section, superb vocals, all mixed together with brilliant songwriting...

    I feel, this is an album worth investigating for many fans with an interest in progressive music.
