Artyfiction’s – Preliminaries

This is a debut album from Poland and its is quite good in spots. Short answer is this is a moderate recommendation for the album. There are some wonderful moments on this album and some other parts that I didn’t really like at all.

They actually have very few facebook likes so this band is really undiscovered and after one album already deserves a fate better than this obscurity they are in at the moment.

The instrumental track Moment of Revelation has a really nice build and you can request it easily below.

I look forward to their next album where maybe I will feel their songwriting ability to be more consistent.

If you have never read the key for my ratings below please do so one time. I feel my ratings are tougher than my peers. Some other reviewers may inflate their ratings in hopes to get people and bands the share the link to the review. When you have a domain like progrock.com you don’t need to drive traffic to your site.
So you can count on my reviews to be fair and any bias I might have whether positive or negative will be clearly explained including a rating for my opinion of the band prior to reviewing the album. Also Check my last.fm link to see how compatible our music tasts are.
