Review by A Crimson Mellotron
3 stars A good, enjoyable, and lighthearted third album from Bulgarian rock band FSB (or Formation Studio Balkanton). Much like their second release, this one combines elements of prog, funk, new-wave, and tiny bits of jazz, all shaped in the form of five short songs, clocking in at 20 minutes of total playtime, making 'The Globe' the band's shortest album.

Well-planned ideas, and well-executed. This album has surprising sonic qualities, given the country of origin and the release year. Adding two new members, and forming a quintet, it was this album that really helped FSB become a touring live act, rather than just a studio project for covers (as they did in their earliest incarnation).

Among the standout tracks, I would name 'Generation' and 'Kaleidoscope'. Besides this, it is hard to find bad songs among the five compiling this really brief listen, so a good album by itself, in its own universe.
