1 stars Doing something impressive and distinct during the peak of the classic progressive rock era couldn't have been an easy task. But sometimes there's just no excuse for mediocre music. Pop Masina, ironically meaning "Pop Machine", demonstrates this on their second record from 1975. Aside from the apparent lack of any progressive movement whatsoever, this trio of guitar, bass and drums even disappoints on the hard rock front which is where most of their aspirations lay. An adolescent amalgam of post Hendrix blues, Mountain-like chugging and spacey Floydism, Pop Masina stumbles at almost every turn and while their intentions are good - this album featuring some fine organ, synth and arranging as on 'Rekvijema Za Prija Telja' - the result is undistinguished at best and banal at worst. Anemic, forgettable and barely progressive.
