4 stars Wow, another classic by the balkan legend from Sarajevo.

I don't understand, frankly, the low ratings of the other colleagues. Even if not at the same level of the terrific previous album Sta Bi Dao Da Si Na Mom Mjestu (1975), a masterpiece, IMHO, EtÚ, Bas Hocu has similar elements of and the memorable "pastirski rock" sound.

The structure of all the classic repertoire of Bijelo Dugme is here: zenith is touched at the bottom of the tracking list. "Sanjao Sam Nocas da te Nemam" has a very haunting melodic appeal and pompous arrengements, a very distictive sound. Don't understand the lyrics but it seems something sad. The singer Bebek is a pure pleasure to listen to and did a hell of a work along as all the other members.

I find something italian in it (also in other albums)... maybe it is due to the long stay of Goran Bregovic in Neaples in the early seventies, just before the foundation of the band.

The general mood of the music is near the previous work but somehow less aggressive and more gentle in touch. Not less fresh, tough, and that's why I love this album wholeheartedly.
