3 stars I find the music of Zarbanjeno Plakatirati remarkably interesting and hardly inaccessible. The biggest negative though would have to be the vocals, which are grating and distract from the music.

"Ne brini, mama" The fuzzy bass and splashes of organ make for exciting semi-psychedelic rock, such that the vocalist would have served the music better by humming John Cage's "4'33."

"Dobro jutro, madam Jovanovic" Funnily enough (to me anyway), the phrase "Dobro jutro" is Serbian for "Good morning," but of course a Dobro is a trademark of a resonator guitar, played with a slide, and slide guitar opens up this track. Okay, so maybe that self-amusement was a bit of a stretch. Overall, this lengthier song is heavy rock in the vein of Uriah Heep with occasional jazzy touches. The first instrumental section about three minutes in is a brilliant mélange of guitars and organ over a spacey bass riff. The last two minutes drive right through Gentle Giant territory.

"Helga" The strange introduction is like the rockier side of Jethro Tull, and then the song becomes closer to typical blues rock. The vocals are even gruffer and more unnatural and ill-fitting. Fans of Led Zeppelin might have to give this a try.

"Jeste li vidjeli djevojcice" Murky guitar and ethereal organ make an entrance. Two minutes in things pick up and become carnival-like, very peppy and enthusiastic. It features an exciting passage in 7/4 before dropping into the murkiness again. A herd of schoolchildren, perhaps escaping school for the summer, may be heard at the end.

"Doktore pomozite" Hurling back into the foot-stomping rock found in "Helga," this song has a steady electric guitar riff and a giddy piano. The shouting makes a mediocre song even more so.

Epignosis | 3/5 |
