2 stars Ursiny´s last record with his most stable line up (Filip, Kroczek, Kaššay, Stankovský) and his first CD. And Ursiny used the format almosst to its limit, writing 13 songs that occupy 72 minutes on the disc.

Začiatok The melody is OK and relaxed on here, with a fine piano by Filip, but I don´t like Ursiny´s singing on this one. 3.5 stars

Puto. Pár slov o slobode Another one thaat sounds as a ripp off from Zelená, both in melody, arrangements and atmosphere. Not a bad rip off, but still a rip off. 3.5 stars

22 rokov. Okamih. More impressive and fresher, with atmospheric organ playing and acoustic guitar lines from Juraj Burian make the track sound less alike to those from his last few albums, although there are still obvious similarities. 4 stars

Nové vzývanie I heard this one before as well...repetition again. 2 stars

Pokojne kráča medzi levmi Now this one is even more obvious, as the main melody line as well as the guitar line are taken from Ursiny´s Radar sa krúti. 1 star

Uprene More of the same here. Both in tempo, vocals and melody. 1 star

Van Gogh. Posledný autoportrét. Finally something new . A more upbeat track with a bluesy feel, organ from Jaroslav Filip and great ringing guitarplaying from Ursiny 5 stars

Kuvik to vraví Another one that´s uptempo. Great bassplaying on this one. But the singing is not that great on this one, with Ursiny rather reciting and not singing. At least the instrumental passages are good. 1 star

Kedy ak nie teraz Again, the melody sounds too familiar, but it is at least pretty fine. with a great guitar solo on acoustic guitar from Radek Pastňák 3 stars

Spomienka na hasičov a na vzplanutie v daždi Again, too similar to older material, and a weak melody. 1 star

Nočný prúd A lively, jazzy une, with Juraj Bartoš on the trumpet. However, the track develops into a slower piece, again similar to other tracks from older albums and singing becomes monotonous again. The excellent solo on acoustic guitar (played by Pastrňák or Burian, according to the cd it should be Burian) does not help. 1 star

Prekročenie hranníc Again sounds somewhat repetitive, with an average melody and a solo on acoustic guitar. A well played track (everything on the CD is), but rather uninspired. 2 stars

Pangea. Do tla Ursiny sounds too raw on this one and the melody, even though fine, sounds too similar to the track Van Gogh. Posledný autoportrét. 1 start

A weak, uninspired record, easily the lowest point of Ursiny´s discography

Overal rating: 2 STARS
