2 stars For Drugi Nacin and Yugoslavian rock fans

Nepocin were a Yugo-rock side project that grew out of a break in the career of Drugi Nacin, of which two members Kurtovic and Mekic hail. The album was released in '77 a couple years after the Drugi Nacin debut and you can hear a subtle difference. Nepocin is a bit more varied and ambitious in composition while still maintaining a bit of the Drugi sound. I miss Mikulcic's stellar bass playing from Drugi but what is gained helps to offset the loss. The drumming and keyboards are both better on Nepocin, the percussion fills more nimble and the keys more spacious and interesting. The vocals have been toned down a bit too which is a nice change for those not fans of the dish-breaking falsettos. There are some here but not as annoyingly warbly or frequent. The material and performances are both a marginal improvement as they seem intent on taking more chances here. The long piece in the set is "Cekati Moj Hit" at 7 minutes. It begins with acoustic guitar, flute, and soft vocals before the organ and vocal explode. In comes some spacey synths and then some good trippy electric leads. There is a long drawn out flute section that is pretty nice, backed by a plodding rhythm giving the impression of a journey taking place. I still can't recommend this much beyond fans of 70s hard rock and rate it about the same as Drugi Nacin. Though I prefer this album just a little over Drugi it is still pretty one dimensional and average. I would agree with others that if you enjoy Purple, Heep, and New Trolls, there is a fair chance you will appreciate this. And the album cover is really fantastic when you fold out the whole thing. Almost 3 stars but not quite.
