4 stars This compilation is the best of Vlatko Stefanovski OST for these films: 'Suicide Guide', 'Gypsy Magic', '3 Letnja Dana (Three Summer Days)', 'Journey To The Sun' and 'Skyhook (Nebeska Udica)' (all these films are unknown by me).

The style is various, also if the Folk component (Balkan Folk) is not always recognizable at first listening, is clear that 'Kino Kultura' is an album without POP songs. For a correct view, without knowledge the films, it is difficult to judge the songs. In this sense some songs seems not good but only because functional as soundtrack and this fact penalize a proper understanding.

But believe me: in a certain sense these songs are not simple. In fact the construction of these songs is extreme close to Jazz, also if I speak of composing manner because the style is not Jazz. If you know the style of Goran Bregovic's OST you note that Stefanovski's OST are more dark, reflective and... Untidy. In general if Bregovic is the day, Stefanovski is the night. And this is not only cause because the films are from different genres. Certainly the level is the same: too high.

My view of 'Kino Kultura' is also my consideration of 'Kino Kultura': a great example of World Music, extremely Prog but not Prog.

(P.s.: Probably if I speak of a definition of modern Prog Stefanovski is a good example).
