3 stars After a brief reunion of the original line-up from 1975, which released a disappointing album "Kantina" in 2007, TESKA INDUSTRIJA once again changed direction. This time the old members - guitarist Vedad Hadziavdic and bassist Ivica Propadalo - recruited two female members - lead vocalist Lea Mijatovic and keyboardist Zrinka Majstorovic - while young Robert Domitrovic was added as a drummer. This group recorded the album titled "Give the Album a Proper Title" in 2010.

Radical change of style is evident even on the first listen. Apart from dominant female vocals the band mixes heavy guitar riffs with hints of nu metal grooves ("Dolje juzno"/"Southbound"), melodic hard rock ballads in the vein of GUNS AND ROSES ("Gdje ces ti, a gdje cu ja"/"Where Do You Think You Are Going And Where should I Go") and catchy arena rock with strong pop hooks ("Sunce"/"Sunshine", "Takvi kao ti"/"Men Like You", "Mare i Marko"/"Mare and Marko"). Production is clear with enjoyable sound while all the mentioned songs are well-crafted as hits, making you whistle the tune you just heard. If you like female lead vocals bands like, say, NO DOUBT or Serbian NEGATIVE, you might wish to check this out. Even though prog specialists would search in vein for some unusual or groundbreaking moments, in terms of contemporary "pop-rock" this album is a decent effort.
