5 stars Excellent double album by Phoenix, one of the best rock groups in Central Europe. Their history goes back to the 60's when they were playing rock and rock&roll. Beginning with :Cei ce ne-au dat nume though, their music became more sophisticated.

Even though inspired from Romanian ancient folklore, their best 3 albums: Cei ce ne-au dat nume, Mugur de fluier and Cantafabule are trully prog-folk, sometimes more folk, sometimes more prog.

I wouldn't go through all the songs of this album, but aside Scara Scarabeului all of them are musical gems. The album is following a cohesive theme, even though each piece (song) has its own style and inspiration.

I listen to this album today with the same excitement as I did in 1975, when it first came out. If you like Jethro Tull, or Gentle Giant you would love this group and album. Five stars !! no doubt about it. Highly recommended !
