4 stars This was BLUE EFFECT's most Symphonic record and there's lots of vocals as well. This didn't sit that well with the Jazz / Fusion fans who prefered their earlier sound, but Prog fans for the most part were quite pleased with this offering. The bass player left to be replaced by a second keyboard player. I really like the synths in this one because they bring lots of atmosphere to the table.

"Za Krokem Zen" opens with the organ floating in before the band kicks in quickly. It settles 2 minutes in. Vocals before 3 1/2 minutes in as the organ floats back in. It kicks back in again. The drums dominate 5 1/2 minutes in then it settles again. I like the synths that follow. It kicks back in before 8 1/2 minutes with guitar. Nice. Vocals are back before 10 minutes. Great tune. "Hledam Sve Vlastni Ja" opens with piano and atmosphere. Vocals before 1 1/2 minutes. A great sounding melancholic tune.

"Rajky" opens with drums and a fairly heavy sound. Clavinet follows then it settles 2 minutes in. It picks back up and vocals arrive before 3 1/2 minutes. The guitar solos as drums pound before 5 minutes.Vocals are back. Excellent track. "Zmoudreni Babim Letem" has a good heavy intro with some killer organ. The guitar joins in too. A calm after 1 1/2 minutes as reserved vocals join in. I really like the synths too. It picks up some 5 minutes in. Guitar 6 1/2 minutes. Incredible ! "Zazrak Jedne Noci" opens in a mellow way with reserved vocals before it kicks in before 1 1/2 minutes. Contrasts continue. The song stops 6 minutes in then builds with drums and synths. Cool sound as the guitar also joins in. This reminds me of PINK FLOYD.

I like this better than the previous album. A very solid 4 stars.
