5 stars This opus appears as a regular revelation to me, just because I fell in love to Czech progressive rock music with original Czech lyrics. Synkopy with Oldřich Veselý or Blue Effect with one of the best Czechoslovakian instrumentalists - guitarist Radim Hladík, these bands are what Jeseter reminds me. Of course, this was meant as a compliment.

Czechoslovakia was full of great talents, but as you know, the political system wasn't too pleasant to young artists with inspirations from the West. In the late 60's and 70's the powerful hand of "normalization" was very strict to music fans in our country. These fans had much bigger human bonds and they were more connected between themselves indeed. And this is what I'm talking about. Jeseter reminds me this part of our history with so much beatiful music made these days.

'Proměna' (or 'Transformation') is simply a breathtaking album. The legacy of the Czechoslovakian most important art rock bands was maintained. And it still is. This is why I'm giving 4/5. Thank you, Jeseter.

4 stars Jeseter's Promena finds the Czech group adopting a sound highly reminiscent of early neo- prog, particularly early work by the likes of IQ or The Lens, filtered through musicians steeped in the Czech prog scene and its traditions dating back to Czechoslovakian days and the prime of groups like Blue Effect. Robert Hejduk's synthesiser work, in particular, puts me in mind of Martin Orford's work on IQ's Tales From the Lush Attic or The Lens's A Word In Your Eye. If you want a breathtaking work of staggering originality which completely rewrites the prog rulebook, this certainly isn't it, but if you want to hear skilled prog musicians paying tribute to their influences you aren't going to be disappointed here.
