4 stars The smoke of the flaming Leb I Sol debut hasn't been blown out and the ex-Yugoslavian quartet had already prepared material for a second album.It was a common practice for a band back in the 70's to release more than just an album during the same year and Leb I Sol were no exception, releasing ''2'' in 1978, again on the mega PGP RTB label.

With this album the group epitomized the fact of being one of the best Fusion acts, not only in East Europe, but worldwide.Stefanovski and his intelligent, stunning guitar work still leads Leb I Sol's fiery yet deeply melodic music, being supported by the nervous electric piano of Koki Dimusevski.The album is filled with energetic and passionate solos, technically perfect drumming and furious keyboard passages, sometimes surrounded by ethnic overtones, but mostly coming in a tight mix of Jazz/Fusion and Progressive Rock.The ability of the group to combine the music roots of the country with the rockin' attitude is more than impressive, while some tracks contain also some nice and spacey synth preludes.The vocal moments are now quite limited, giving more space to solid instrumental interplays and virtuosic deliveries, characterized by odd meters and shifting tempos.But the music of Leb I Sol had always a deep sense of melody, thus a wide audience always supported the group.

This group needs a wider recognition by the public.Clever, intricate, melodic and demanding Prog/Fusion with lovely melodies and a personal character.Highly recommended to all Prog fans.
