Review Summary: The album is well worked, but repetitive. Often the tracks are tasteless and lack personality.

Review in English:
Under the Fragmented Sky by Mariusz Duda. This 2018 album contains 8 tracks and only 35:58 of music. According to Google Music it is categorized as Electronic Music, for many critics it is a progressive rock album. We feel several similarities or influences with their contemporaries i.e. Opeth, Beardfish, Porcupine Tree, Black Field, Steven Wilson especially with regards to acoustic guitar use and strumming accompanied by a Lake-Type (ELP) voice. TrackÂ*3 reintegrates acoustic instaruments and these instruments are present at this moment in order to balance electronics and acoustics. The track n. 4 is by far the best with his acoustic guitar, his waltz rhythm, his aerial and emotional sounds. Track # 5 we feel progressive influences i.e. Falling into infinity and Six Degrees of inner turbulence from Dream Theater.

We feel that there is a work on the sound level. We try here to be minimalist, but to use effective sounds and it is successful. We also use the autotune and the vocoder several times in this album which is a proof of the influences of the electronic music. The album is well worked, but repetitive. Often the tracks are tasteless and lack personality.

Review in French:
Under the Fragmented Sky par Mariusz Duda. Cet album de 2018 contient 8 titres et seulement 35:58 de musique. Selon Google Music il est catĂ©gorisĂ© comme Musique Ă©lectronique, pour plusieurs critiques il s’agit d’un album de rock progressif. On sent plusieurs similaritĂ©s ou influences avec leurs contemporains c’est-Ă*-dire Opeth, Beardfish, Porcupine Tree, Black Field, Steven Wilson surtout en ce qui concerne les bouts de guitare acoustique et de strumming accompagner d’une voix Ă* la Lake. La pisteÂ*3 rĂ©intègre des instruments acoustiques et ces instruments sont prĂ©sents Ă* partir de ce moment dans le but d’équilibrer l’électronique et l’acoustique. La piste n. 4 est de loin la meilleure avec sa guitare acoustique, sa rythmique de type valse, ses sonoritĂ©s planantes et Ă©motives. La piste numĂ©roÂ*5 on sent les influences progressives Ă* l’image des albums Falling into infinity et Six Degree of inner turbulence de Dream Theater. On sent qu’il y a un travail au niveau sonore. On essaie ici d’être minimaliste, mais d’utiliser des sons efficaces et c’est rĂ©ussi. On utilise aussi l’autotune et le vocodeur Ă* plusieurs reprises dans cet album ce qui est une preuve des influences de la musique Ă©lectronique sur cette musique. L’album est bien travaillĂ©, mais rĂ©pĂ©titif. Souvent les pistes sont insipides et manquent de personnalitĂ©.
