3 stars Once in a while i'll come across a band that is highly esteemed by the majority that leaves me bewildered as to why. INDEXI is one of those bands.Their highly regarded "Modra Rijeka" did little for me but at least it was proggy.This is a compilation from their early years and is a mixed bag, and the sound quality while not bad still leaves a lot to be desired.

"Dan Kao Ovaj" is catchy with vocals and organ standing out. Some good guitar too. "Hej Ti" is better but more of the same really. I like the prominant bass though. We get a calm after 2 1/2 minutes then it kicks back in with organ and guitar leading. Nice. Another calm after 3 1/2 minutes then the main melody with vocals return. "Da Li Postoji Ljubav" doesn't sound the best. It must have been recorded at a different time. Organ to start as vocals and bass come in.The sound quality is a distraction on this one. "Najlepse Stvari" opens with drums and guitar as vocals arrive. Again poor sound quality here. "Ja Odlazam Sutra" is a little bluesy with organ, bass and guitar standing out with vocals of course. I like this better than the last two tracks at least. I really like when it calms down before 3 minutes as organ, bass then guitar come in. It picks back up.

"Negdje Na Kraju U Zatisju" opens with the sound of rain and floating organ as spoken words come in. This over 11 1/2 minute track is the best one in my opinion. Vocals and organ take over and build. A change before 4 minutes as drums and organ create some atmosphere then the guitar joins in. Great sound here. Another change before 5 1/2 minutes as flute starts to lead with tambourine and bass. A guitar solo before 7 minutes is tasteful as the organ floats in the background and drums pound. Drums and organ lead 8 1/2 minutes in. A calm with vocals a minute later.The song ends with rain and spoken words just like it began. "Galijom Sna" is a straight forward commercial sounding tune. I like the calmer sections with floating organ.

Certainly this would be of value to fans, but with the sound issues and some of the more commercial sounding tracks it's barely 3 stars in my opinion.
