4 stars Ursiny´s album, released after a longer break from recording. And as it seems, it did well to his songwriting, as the melodies are strong again, and the music more varied.

Momentky The title atmospheric track with a perfect melody (typically Ursinyesque) and atmospheric keyboard and saxophone playing, which is handled by Rudolf Březina on this album. Also, the lyrics on this track contain a lne, in which all names of the tracks on the album are mentioned. Captivating and very well crafted. 5 stars

Dychtivé ruky, cudzie mestá An uptempo track with great, funky rhytm (marvelous bass by Vladimír Kaššay). The melody, as well as Ursiny´s singing are great as well, very energetic. Březina plays another fine saxophone solo, too.The fast, nergetic passages are followed by a relaxed and slower one, which sounds like comming off the album Zelená. 5 stars

Vtáci Fine bass playing here, as well as electric violin from Richard Kroczek. The melody is considerably lesser, beeing too close to motifs from the last two records, but not recreating what made the album Zelená so unique. At least, the track contains a perfectlong flute solo. 3.5 stars

Deti A slower and also much moodier track. Great, evocative keyboards from Jaroslav Filip and hypnotizing vocals from Ursiny. One of the best melodies of his later period as well. The chorus is perfect, with subtle backing vocals. the track concludes with a Filips nice piano solo. 5 stars

Deti a zase deti The opening melody sounds like coming from a circus, which is a clever idea, although I feel like I have already heard it all before. There is a very similar melody to this one in another of Ursiny´s sons, I just don´t remember which. Even if the guest Radek Pastrňák plays a nice solo on guitar, it does not help to make the number sond less monotonous or fresher. 2 stars

Kus tváre a terrific ballad with great vocals from Ursiny. The melody coupled with his vocals is astonishingly beautiful, are the solos from Richard Kroczek. 5 stars

Letná cesta A bright track, with a relaxed feel and a good melody, although it sounds as a rip off of Neviditeľný spevák from Na ceste domov. The solo sounds pretty close to those he played on Zelená,. Although a very nice song, these facts lower the rating somewhat. 3.5 stars

Overal rating: 4 STARS
