1 stars S VREMENA NA VREME disbanded after the failure of their previous studio album "Paviljon G" to hit the charts amongst the Yugoslav punk/new wave boom in 1979. A decade later Ljuba Ninkovic and Asim Sarvan re-united briefly, without Djukic brothers, and re-recorded a collection of old SVNV songs from their "golden" period in mid-1970s.

Titled "Ljuba and Asim: Greatest Hits of the Group 'S Vremena Na Vreme'", this collection unfortunately did not bring any new or creative aspect of the old songs, except rather awful musical production for which Ninkovic and Sarvan are responsible. Apart from Toma Milakovic who played bass on all except one track, all other instruments were performed by Ljuba Ninkovic. The most problematic aspect of this work, however, is the sound of synthesizer keyboards and electronic drums programming, which simply ruined most of the songs covered here. With possible exception of extended and re-arranged version of "Vreme ispred nas" (En. "A Time To Come") having a nice electric guitar solo part at the end, most tracks are unattractive or even barely listenable. Original versions, taken either from singles or LPs, were way better sounding with much more emotions and creativity involved.

These versions of old songs as recorded on "Ljuba and Asim..."are cold, empty-hearted and too technical. Unless a die-hard SVNV completest, you should avoid this album!
