SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Romanian band YESTERDAYS are veterans in their native progressive rock scene, with a history going back almost 20 years at this point. The band have released three studio albums so far. Their most recent production is "Senki Madara", and album that was self released by the band in 2018.

There is a lot to like about Yesterday's third album, and those who really enjoy the gentler aspects of 70's era symphonic progressive rock will most likely find this album to be immensely enjoyable. Especially if the inclusion of folk music elements and the occasional tip of the hat in the direction of jazz is regarded as a positive feature. A well made and solid quality album for the aficionados of vintage era 70's symphonic progressive rock.

5 stars After falling in love with the 4th Yesterdays album Saint-Exupéry álma, I started discovering the band's discography. Their 3rd release Senki madara is a very unique take on ancient Hungarian folk songs, a nice concept building a symphonic prog album around. The Hungarian folk music heritage is one ... (read more)

4 stars After listening to their latest album lots of times, I had to revisit their 3rd album and got inspired to write a review about that album first. Senki madara was the 3rd album of Yesterdays, no thanks to financial and bureaucratic reasons they've released it on CDr. Fortunately the quality of th ... (read more)

4 stars 'A happy marriage between folk and symphonic rock' In 2010 I witnessed a Dutch gig from Yesterdays, during an interesting triple prog concert with Belgian Mindgames and Dutch Flamborough Head. The band played a ... (read more)

4 stars 'Senki Madara' - Even the name of the album ('Nobody's Bird') reflects the grim mood coming from the lyrics of these Hungarian traditional songs' (I personally felt a rush of sadness flowing through me). Yesterdays manage to borrow influences from the classics of prog and putting it to good use ... (read more)

4 stars We had to wait eight years for the 3rd Yesterdays album, now the group is back with their new album "Senki Madara." There were some member changes but the most important is the arrival of the new singer Stephanie Semeniuc. Such a magnificent voice! Her voice reminds me of the first lead singer of Qu ...

5 stars Hungarian prog combo YESTERDAYS is back with their 3rd album. As it was a recent discovery for me (on Bandcamp) it surprised me in a very positive way. My first impression was also positive, such a beautiful album cover, a fragile representation of a precious musical heritage of Hungarian tr ... (read more)

4 stars Just discovered YESTERDAYS a few weeks ago. There's something original about this group with changing lineups, but with constant quality of ideas, concepts and music of course. I often say that Eastern Europe has a lot to offer to symphonic proggers, and YESTERDAYS is here to prove me right. ... (read more)

4 stars 2018 has been a very busy year for Romanian/Hungarian band Yesterdays. They are back with a single (It's not the End of the World) and a full length studio album Senki madara (Noone's Bird). This third album has a special concept by using traditional Hungarian folk melodies and texts and since ... (read more)

4 stars Ancient Hungarian folk songs in symphonic progressive rock. Such a great idea for an album! Lyrics never sounded more real and with such depth and grace than with these because all the wisdom and beauty of the past centuries' Hungarian traditional heritage.

4 stars It was worth the wait for YESTERDAYS' 3rd studio album! As an audiophile I must say that the band really nailed the sound and the dynamics. Very impressive sound quality that brings back the good old dynamics we all love from the vinyl times of the '70-s. But of course the sound isn't everyth ... (read more)

5 stars I've been following Yesterdays on social media platforms for a while and I've been waiting for a new release very bad. The band went through many changes since their second release, Colours Caffé. For me, this third studio album feels like the band has found its voice (usually 3rd albums are lik ... (read more)
