2 stars From the first song to the last, this is a good album but don't be mistaken it is not prog album! OK! Maybe he has little samples, good lyrics and some sympho moments. In other side he is very close to the folk sounds of some eastern bends (sad violin play in song "Godina" and flute in "Skadarska" that is just blasphemies). But this is not prog!

Songs are short and have a commercial approach (acoustic nature as always) , very sad and romantic lyrics almost for crying ( sometimes can hear some marillion influence on this ) , melodic works are as always good but don't have that prog line (floating and atmospheric keyboards ) like in the first albums. Also listener can hear colorful blues riffs and little of harmonica ( "Seti se maja" , "Pod noktima" ). Songs played with medieval music ensamble "Renesans" is truly good and for me best in the album. "Posle vatre" and "Trava" have some superb and delicious harmonies ( that is that prog line ).

This album is not prog but I recommend it to all people that enjoy in good rock music!!

OK!!! For rock review I will give them 4 - 4,5 but for prog rock barely 2 !
