5 stars Originally intended to be Tocak's solo album "Zasto ne volim sneg"(english "Why I don't like snow")became,IMHO,best Smak album in their entire catalogue.Recorded shortly before band split up for several years,album's dark and heavy,fusion influenced sound was very different from what was known as distinctive Smak sound of previous years.Vocalist Boris Arandjelovic is gone,two guest vocalists , excellently skilled Zoran Zivanovic on two cuts and legendary Dado Topic of Time fame giving his,dare I say,best ever vocal performance ever on album title song,which is a highligt,along with heavy,almost doom laden fusion instrumental "Talisman".Stunning!Also,most played song on radio stations at the time from this album "Zajdi,zajdi",instrumental cover of a beautiful Macedonian folk song,is probably best ever reworking of traditional folk song in yu rock history,R.M.Tocak at his best.Every time I hear this song I get highly emotional and nostalgic,remembering good,old times in ex- Yu.Being mostly instrumental,album comes highly reccomended to all prog lovers.
