5 stars This album is the first one in the string of four essential prog-rock albums from Yugoslavia during seventies,other three being Korni grupa's debut,Indexi's "Modra rijeka" and Tako's self titled debut.Dado Topic,lead singer,formed Time after departure from Korni grupa 1971,and immediately band was hailed as a first Yu supergroup,gathering some of the best musicians at the time.Also,their self titled debut is the first real foray into progressive waters in Yugoslavian music scene ,at the time dominated by pop and hard-rock.there is a five songs on original LP,with two straight rockers "Istina masina" and "Hegedupa upa",two prog ballads "Pjesma No.3"and "Kralj alkohol",and first Yu-prog epic "Za koji zivot treba da se rodim",a multipart song with wild elecric piano,flute and wah-wah guitar solos,which gave direction to other Yu-prog bands to follow.Musical and historical importance of this album is so huge that even today CD release sells in excess all over ex- Yugoslavia,altough prog-rock is completely forgotten musical genre over there.Unfortunately,after great succes of this album,Topic disbanded the group,reforming it a year later with new musicians,but the thrill was gone and band released several more,mostly mediocre straight rock albums which failed to re-energize band's musical life and by the end of 1976 Time finally ceased to exist.Today "Time" stands as one of the most important musical achivements in modern music from ex- Yugoslavia and also one of the best.Highly recommended.
