Izabela Trojanowska was one of the most popular Polish singers in the early Eighties. This is her second album, which sold over 300.000 copies between 1982 and 1983. Unfortunately, she was forced to leave Poland soon after, when the authorities refused to release her next album because of some harsh anti-establishment lyrics.

The music is a mix of post-punk, synth-pop, and blues rock, with both muscular riffs and gentle embellishments. A new wave feeling dominates the tracklist, with the legendary sound engineer Jacek Mastykarz always finding the right balance between the rock vein and the synthesized sounds. Another big plus is Izabela's voice, which occasionally reminds of Kate Bush.

Her debut album, "Iza" (1981), is also worth of notice. I will post it eventually, even if I'm struggling to find it on CD.
