Review by Marty McFly
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
5 stars Different version of Válka je vůl (free translation like "War sucks") that I'm used to (from different best of version - the only source of some of their songs by the way, which makes them much more important), but also good. Variation, that's what one need with some familiar tunes (same song, different performance, only vocals remains the same).

We're done with first track, so let's move to others. Synkopy possess one big advantage. Even these average ones sounds very great due to interesting guitar playing style and most importantly - vocals. Harmony, synchronized, greatly mastered vocals (even in these proto- times). That pushes the limits and also ratings quite high. I'm glad for it, it really helps to enjoy this music. And collection of tracks here looks like something from first two EP's (they're 24 minutes long, it has to be EP). Get used to one thing, everything is melodic here. I'm glad for it, as it's not some cheap melody, but rather this music on the verge of 60's and 70's.

5(-) - here, again five stars rating, it good enough, full of many, many things (you know what, elements). And words are so pleasant to hear here, rhymes are perfectly fitting.
