Poland

Marcin Pajak's sixth studio album, "In The Space," is an ambitious narrative woven into a neo-progressive rock framework. With eleven tracks and a runtime of 64 minutes, the album narratively unfolds with a familiar-themed journey of a protagonist on a cosmic quest for a new home for humanity.

Musically, "In The Space" showcases the combined talents of Pajak and his band. Marcin's vocal and guitar work, alongside the skilled performances of Piotr Sitkowski on keyboards and synthesizers, Wiktor Świerczek on saxophone, Tomasz Zawadzki on bass, and Nicholas Schlesinger on drums, crafts a sound that is intricate and engaging.

"In The Space" represents a well-constructed work that adeptly combines a compelling story with music, affirming Marcin Pajak's dedication to thematic and musical development.

"In The Space" operates within the established boundaries of the neo-prog genre, showcasing well-executed music that does not significantly alter Pajak’s artistic direction or the genre’s conventions. The album's thematic exploration of solitude and determination in the vast universe resonates, though it may not offer unexpected twists to those already acquainted with Pajak’s style or neo-prog more generally.

"In The Space" represents a well-constructed work that adeptly combines a compelling story with music, affirming Marcin Pajak's dedication to thematic and musical development. While it may not introduce novel concepts, it showcases Pajak as a creative and capable musician within the progressive rock genre.

There are definitely many highlight moments among the songs. Tune in to Prog Radio to hear several tracks from this new album, as well as being featured in next week’s What’s New Proggy Cats?
