2 stars After excellent previous album "Hazard", PREDMESTJE decided to do what is usually perceived fatal to all progressive or fusion bands - to sound "modern" and trendy! And New Wave and Ska were trendy in this period. Add to this a cheesy, tasteless cover design with female legs and overall "concept" of sex and eroticism as a main idea of the album, and you get a terribly unconvincing, at times even awful, record. Still, when they play instrumental jams they do it nicely and with musicianship that can be a raw model ("Jugorama", "Eureka", "Kamasutra") for sort of commercial, highly accessible "soft fusion". Even THE POLICE-invoking opener "U Parizu" is a decent and catchy song done in Ska rhythm. But, the rest of the album is pretty bad and those vocal parts are really moronic. PREDMESTJE disbanded after "Kamasutra" and hearing it nowadays makes it obvious as to what went wrong. Only for collectors.

3 stars With their last release Kamasutra, Predmestje did definetely dissolve with prog-rock, but did an excellent job in the instrumental disco manner on the other hand. Disco, as an undoubtly inferior genre, achievs with this release it's highest peek. In an non-prog enviroment my rating would be 4 stars. With prog-rock criteria on mind, one star less.
