I never really liked Niemen. Of course, I appreciated him for originality and thought provoking music and lyrics but he wasn`t my genre. I had a problem with his high pitched voice and scream-like singing which too often appeared irritating to me. But he made a few great ballads.
Czesław Niemen (Polish pronunciation: [t͡ʂɛswaf ɲemɛn]; February 16, 1939 – January 17, 2004), born Czesław Juliusz Wydrzycki, and often credited as just Niemen, was one of the most important and original Polish singer-songwriters and rock balladeers of the 20th century, singing mainly in Polish.
