3 stars I honestly believe Blue Effect is one of best (if not the best) Czech band ever. Just listen to their albums from early 70-s! But - this debut album is different (and the year is 1969).

Music here is eclectic mix of blues-rock, guitar rock ballads, early psychedelic and symphonic rock. I listen the "export ?version with English vocals, and it doesn't sound good for me (don't know if Czech vocals in original sounds better). Songs are something very usual for just a band from late 60 -s: obvious Procol Harum influence, some fashionable bluesy rockers, competent but far from excellent musicianship. Better than average tribute band, hardly more.

It is almost miracle, how a year after same Blue Effect will show their highest class on free-jazz-rock fusion collaboration album with Jazz Q Praha! So - to listen one of the best Czech band ever just start from their 1970 album (and some later works all are brilliant). Debut is interesting for heavy band fans and Czech rock collectors mostly.
