4 stars This is a very good fusion album, the only DEN ZA DEN ever recorded.

Due to total neglect by the public they soon disbanded after its release. Music style and instrumental line up of this album are quite similar to that of LEB I SOL's early career. "Den za den" almost sounds like a "lost" fourth LEB I SOL album. In 1980 LEB I SOL dropped keyboardist and continued as standard rock trio. If they recorded another pure fusion album after the acclaimed "Rucni rad" from 1979, it may have sounded like "Den za den".

Speculations aside, this is a worthy album of furious tempo. None of the tracks is longer than 5 minutes and they are all instrumental. Arian Dema's guitar work is powerful, fast and crazy. Still, sometimes seems to have too excessive soloing technique at the cost of melodies. He seems to be influenced by John McLaughlin. The sci-fi "crucifiction" cover design is one of the memorables in exYU.

Although "Den za den" more than often sounds like a LEB I SOL copycat, it is quite a rewarding listen and if you are a fusion fan you should not miss it.
