Synkopy was one of the finest prog bands from Czech Republic (back then Czechoslovakia) from late '70s early 80s. They were is same league with great Modry Efekt (aka The Blue Effect) combining intresting keybords parts with inventive guitar passages. The second album they released in 1983 named Křídlení is a winner for sure, but in same time is not a masterpiece or close, at least for me. The album is sung in czech, that means I don't get a dime for what they sing, but the language is fiting very well in the music, giving that special East Europe type of prog very much loved by all of us from these parts. The music is a type of heavy prog combined with symphonic passages, something between Exodus from Poland who were contemporary with them and aswell from their country fellows Modry Efekt. All in all more then pleasent release, who came to late in prog scene, who was by this time in shadow and almost forgotten with some exceptions of course. Pieces like opening Křídlení (Prolog) , Mudrinna Soustava or Souznen are real excellent. So, a good towards great release from one of the finest prog bands from East Europe.
