5 stars Igra Staklenih Perlih could be considered as Yugoslavia's answer to PINK FLOYD, with a strong dose of HAWKWIND and close to Krautrock. These comparisons are immediately noticeable - for the curious, listen to the mp3 here of 'Pecurka' - totally spaced-out with a mysterious Farfisa Organ driven intro (recalling Rick Wright's early days with Floyd) and stoned vocals/whispers ( I noticed that the words sung here are nicked from the CAN track 'Mushroom' off Tago Mago) and morphs into a heavy and intense, ascending riff which builds to an amazing climax and jams out Hawkwind style. Being totally struck by this track, I managed to get a re-issue vinyl from Greg W's Syn-Phonic site, and I can say that the whole album is a brilliant example of psychedelic space-rock with some dreamy atmospheres. Opening track 'Gusterov Trg' sounds like psychedelic punk-rock. Regarding the rhythm section, the drum sound is a bit compressed, and the bass has a 'woody' tone to it, but suits the music perfectly. ISP may not be the most original sounding band, but operating in this mode from behind the 'iron curtain' is most certainly impressive. The downside to this album, it clocks in at under half an hour and leaves you wanting more. Superb !!
