5 stars Between the four albums from M Effekt that I have (Hadin Hladik & M Effekt, Svietanie, Svet Hledacu and 33) I think this one is superior by the others, even in relation to Svet Hledacu, another fantastic album. The inclusion in their line up of Fedor Freso(Bass guitar) and Oldrich Vesel' (Keyboards Vocals) contributes for a more symphonic progressive rock approaching in detriment of jazzy vein presents in their previous album... This affirmation is notable soon at the first track "Vysok' stolicka, dlh' popol" starting with a fantastic keyboard introduction follow by a "broken" guitar/drums/bass sequence and a majestic and simple hammond chords making a sumptuous overture from a incredible chain of musical "landscapes" in a very complex composition, I can't detach any passage in special, but, one beautiful moment starts around 4 min 25 sec with a pedal volume guitar with a bass guitar making a counterpoint, this track are full of retakes of previous themes 'crowning" a perfect arrangement .The track 2 "Ej, pad', pad' rosenka " is one of more beautiful ballads ( with a great guitar solo). The track 3 "V sobotu popoludn'" is more close of jazz-rock and shows a passage (starting 2 min 08 sec.) with a certain Gentle Giant "flavor". In Track 4 "Svitanie" is a mix of psych- prog/hard rock and blues... simply brilliant ! The Bonus track "Gollem" is a heavy-prog with a melancholic end. In my opinion this album is essential in any prog collection !!!
