2 stars Sadly, this is a rather forgettable release.

This legendary band have always excelled at being original and innovative. Their spirited live performances display exceptional intensity. In the studio they focus on more lyrical pieces that often contain spacey arrangements, but generally in a more laid-back way.

"Nastroje" finds the band returning to the scene after a few years break. Judging by what's on offer here, they haven't matured during that time. Rather it seems that they've almost completely lost their former essence. The album is a collection of largely insignificant pieces.

New drummer, Paul Wertico (Pat Metheny Group) doesn't really lift the game here. A very capable musician, his contribution here is nothing more than just keeping the beat .Even his drum solo is just a boring filler piece.

The first interesting tune is track 6, that sounds much like a Pat Metheny number! Finally, "Don't Look Back" is perhaps the first and last tune (what an ironic title!) that does justice to the band. A really nice, slightly jazzy and endearing melody with great Moog and guitar runs, but the last two minutes of sounds of rolling waves, background chatter are totally needless.

Well, they should have "Looked Back" as only two decent tunes on a whole album is rather poor showing. I have to agree with "snobb" on the rating of 2.5, but I will have to round it down, instead of up. Pretty sad.

BORA | 2/5 |
