Milan Polak - Dreamscapes (CD)

Milan Polak
by Panagiotis Koutsompogeras at 18 May 2005, 10:21 AM

Whoa! This guy rules! Very sweet music will keep you good company for many hours and will fill your soul with pleasure! This guy definitely belongs up with the fruits of the Satriani / Vai tree (you know, the one with the strings instead of roots)! However this does not mean that he steals from them or that he does not have his own personality!
Milan Polak can be very easily described as the most talented guitarist of Austria. Many of his songs could have been incorporated into the last albums of Satriani / Vai very easily! Dreamscapes is his 2nd solo CD and it will be followed by Guitar Odyssey in June 2005, which is a re-mastered version of the sold out Guitar 2001 CD featuring an extra bonus track. Being very sentimental and groovy, Milan delivers his message with style, integrity and passion! There are a lot of eastern melodies and phrygian scales incorporated in his playing!
Some serious classical guitar playing can also be heard on Contrapunctus III. Experimental mood is also very diffuse here, which is something expected in the world of guitarists. Furthermore boogie passages inside his songs make them more relaxing and appealing to the listener! His music will flow very easily when you want to start a discussion but you don't know how!
I would describe Milan as The lost G3 and it would be a very nice idea indeed for Joe and Steve to include Milan in their following European leg of the G3 concerts!  And what more could a guitarist ask for, than the following word from Mr. Marty Friedman! His playing is great! It was excellent jamming, we'll do that again…. Notice what Steve Lukather also had to say: My friend Milan is a very talented player with a heart of gold. Make sure to check him out !!!
The album was produced by Milan himself and was mastered by Hati Moser & Tom Magyar. Musical moments which deserve the highest of your respect can be pinpointed as follows: Panic Room, Girlfriends, Quicksilver, Shadowdance, Straight Ahead and Sometimes I Still Miss You. Milan has also written some books on guitar sruff! What a talented guy! Along with Neil Zaza's Melodica  consider this album as one of the finest pieces of guitar work, my friend, and dig in with no fear!
