5 stars this is considered the best album ever released by a romanian band and it certainly is. more than that, it is one of the few romanian albums that can stand up there near the folk prog masterpieces. although it is almost 70 minutes long, it has very few weak moments. the song-writing is great, and so is the musicianship. the lyrics are also very good, written by the romanian poets serban foarta and andrei ujica, and are mainly about mythological creatures. they were inspired by a book by dimitrie bolintineanu, 'istoria ieroglifica'.despite these qualities, the album has some weak points, like the relative dated production or some filler songs (pasarea roc...k and roll, scara scarabeului).but as a whole, 'cantofabule' remains a masterpiece of the romanian rock music and a great album of progressive rock.
