5 stars Well, 1978,Indexi - Modra rijeka. an Unknown band to me, really, what it is Indexi? they are from ex-Yugoslavia, and i was searching here on the site, for something new, and i want to say "thanks" to to give me the oportunity to meet this tremendous band, and of course, the album called Modra rijeka.and i was searching, and i found it, i really don`t understand a single word of their lenguage, but what i understand is the passion and feeling while they are singing, so i really don`t care about the lenguage, because in fact, it sounds very good to my ears, So there is no problem to me listening to stuff like this.

The first time that i listen to this, i was listening to it very carefully, i was relax, and i was very curious about th high raiting of this album, and i was reading all the reviews from the collaborators and all of them talking good points about this album, so to be honest, i was programming miself to hear something cool, and guess what? in the first time i was listening this, i was thinking like? so this is the amazing album?and in the next day I give it another spin, and there it is, little by little i was understanding every melodic and well structured part of the album.

This albums in my opinion consist in the bass-line, the bass in every track sounds amazing. check the second track called "blago" and this track is one of the most progressive songs in the album.a lot of changes it is a very good track,sometimes dark, and sometimes very energic.

"Brod" The third track on the album, starts like very "hopefully" nice acoustic guitars, and the electric guitar put the melody, and then some good vocals waiting for the explosive change.2:05 ,wow, what a nice vocal in there, rock and roll type but with more classic structure, then continues and a change comes a la "YES" and then again the relax part.and the electric guitar a la CRIMSON, very very nice track..perfectly for walk and to look to the sky. and in a sunny day,yeah!.

"More"the fourth track on this brilliant album, this is the longest track on the album, starts like an jet arrives or something, or a ovni, and then starts very agressive,fast, and the voices are very energic, a lot of screams, again the bass kicking ass, and i like a lot the acoustic guitar too a la flamenco.very good song, and there is a part in the middle of the song when the keyboards make his way into a dark castle.

"Slovo o covjeku" the sixth track on the album, this track will make you cry, really, it is very beautiful, a lot of feeling.i don`t understand a single word but i understand the energy that the vocal transmits.god chorus.nice hamony and very melodic.

"Plustinja"the seven track on the album, one of the best of the album, in my opinion,again the vocals predominate the song, the organ sounds very dark and melodic at the same time, what we have on this album are the strong melodic vocal parts with good instrummental times,a very solid album, while the vocals are the principal keys to the songs, you hear a lot of rock,pop,jazz,blues, everything, so there is no tuning back to really aprecciate this masterpiece. i like a lot the accent of the vocal hehe.

"more"totally instrummental, and totally magnific, it sounds like an asiatic tune,the guitar sounds a la YES in some times, very deep, i enjoy a lot this wonderful music, the sintethizer very great ,the bass have a good solo in the middle of the song and what i can say about the final part? oh men, this is music,holy shit,the keyboards a la deep purple in the final section,ends perfectly the song.Amazing.

"Modra rijeka" and finally the masterpiece of the album, i donīt have words to describe this beautiful piece of art. this is what i am talking about when the music and the human unites to creates the perfection in life. one of my top 30 songs of all time. give it a try to this song.

Conclusion: A very very good album ( 5 stars )
