Review by Martien Koolen
Believe's fifth studio album The Warmest Sun In Winter is their best effort so far.
It was recorded in Mirek Gil's studio in early 2013 and the CD includes eight new
tracks including Please Go Home; a song written in memory of Robert Rosnak, a Polish
reporter and friend of the band.
The album opens with a short song called The End,
filled with guitars and piano, followed by one of the highlights of the CD, namely
the guitar-dominated track Beginners. The absolutely amazing guitarsolos of Gil in
this song remind me of Sattelite and Riverside; pure magic. Another great song is
Heartless Land, also the longest track, which is again filled with breathtaking
melodies and exquisite guitarpassages, solos and grooves.
The only disappointing
song on the album is the so called hidden track The Bright Day, which is rather
weird and jazzy. But I can really recommend this album to lovers of melodic
progressive music as Believe has really turned into an amazing band.
