2 stars As the name does not indicate, this is a Czech group that recorded a few albums around the turn of the 80's into the 90's. Apparently they were quite disparate in their musical styles and varied a lot from one album (their earlier being reputed jazz-rock) to another. However, on this album, which is the most easily found, they remain quite even throughout the album, doing some kind of Gothic rock that can be placed between those progmetal groups like After Forever and an alternative rock with gothic-folk influences like Miranda Sex Garden. Nothing really thrilling and unfortunately the album is plagued by the awful late-80's drum sounds (often programmed) and an electro-pop feel is certainly not helping. Certainly not much jazz-rock in this album, even if Miroslav Vitous guests on the seventh track. Not worth the progheads' investigation, unless enjoying the pop music of the era.
