5 stars Two years later after "Slovenian Girls" release, S.B.B. recorded their second excellent work. Similar structure's album ( just four long compositions, two on each LP side), same band's line-up. And possibly, you will recognize there it is the same band. But the music is a bit different.

All four compositions are slower this time, with some sad and soulful music. Band's bluesy roots still are presented, but in a form of rare traces only. If two years ago their music was progressive mixture of blues-rock and jazz fusion, there is another mix - melodic symphonic prog with many jazz fusion and Eastern European folk elements. Much more sensible and soulful music, with acoustic (sometimes -Spanish) guitars intros.

All musicians play excellent music, but common album's atmosphere is more mature and ... with some sadness in every note. Plenty of more modern keyboards sound and some Floydian electric guitar solos - long, more dreamy ,than spacey.

Compositions are of complex structure, and there still are many jazz rock arrangements. Such combination makes the album easy accessible, but never boring.

If you want to have just two S.B.B. albums - take two these, and you will have possibly greatest Eastern European band from 70-s in their best.

Four and half for sure.
