SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars What a pleasant single (exactly 14 minutes) these two songs. I dare to say that Hommage ŕ J. S. Bach is perhaps my most favourite song by them. It also appeared on CD release of "Konvergience", which is from where I know it. People would probably say that it sounds like Emerson, Lake (and third one, you know who) and I won't argue. They may (or may not, availability of foreign material in Czechoslovakia back them was very bad) be aware of most of their material (it's hard to determine, while in "free" western world it is easy, there don't exist presumption of innocence in music - you sound like Genesis nowadays, you must have listened them - funny, because we lacked presumption of innocence in law system, which is quite ironic). It's simply classical piece done in the very traditional Symphonic Rock. Bass sounds great here, but of course (it's hard to ignore them and try to concentrate on other instruments), the main thing are keyboards - some kind of organ perhaps, it would be stylish). Melodic, catchy, systematic (carefully "composed", or at least translated into Prog) simply perfect.

Ulica plná plásťov do dazďa is classical music interpretation (Symphonic) as well, but completely different. Instead of fast paced, melodic pompous piece we get slow crawler, quite moody and more demanding song. But it's actually equally interesting (or perhaps equality fails here?), only in different way. To be honest, I like them both.

4(-), of course, nowadays, a purpose of singles is almost zero-like (get remastered, 136 minutes long album Konvergience instead), but the quality of these two songs is great, so the result is four minus. Quality is five though.
