1 stars The second album with vocalist Alen Mustafic was recorded during the turbulent period of Yugoslav collapse and the Bosnian war in the 1990s, so the title track "Sarajevo Night" carries reminiscence to these events. It was even a minor radio-friendly pop hit at times when there was enough electricity to be able to listen to radio under the siege of Sarajevo. Fairly pathetic light rock ballad was justified only by the horrible circumstances.

Even five tracks (more than 50%) from the previous cassette album "Gospode, ne daj da je sanjam" were reissued on this one. I cannot recognize any re-recording method so I assume these were simply copied here. In relation to the previous album, two new members joined the band: drummer Admir Ceremida (ex PLAVI ORKESTAR) and bassist Haris Kapetanovic, but it is hardly relevant to the songs. In addition to the title track, "Nema suza" ("No Tears") and "Carsija" ("The Market Square") tried (unsuccessfully) to offer some pop rock attempts while "Zapjevaj" ("Let's Sing") strives to emulate DIRE STRAITS guitar sound to no avail. Even the saxophone is unable to remedy poor songwriting here.

"Sarajevska noc" is hardly any better than the predecessor, which means: stay away from this poor cassette! This version of TESKA INDUSTRIJA has nothing in common with the old 1970s progressive hard rock group except the name.
