Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
4 stars ME's last album Svet Hledacu of the decade is in some ways one of their most "prog", it was to signal the end of the Czech's most brilliant group, even if the following 33 album still has some moments. By this time bassist Freso has left ME, replaced by the returning Semelka, adding a second keyboard player, leaving the bass guitar spot empty. Oddly enough, while the 73 album and most of Svetanie were largely instrumental, Svet Hledacu has extended vocal tracks, with both keyboardist sharing vocal duties, and even odder, they both sound quite alike: it's quite hard to tell which voice belongs to which singer.

From the lengthy opener Za Krokem Zen, one can say that ME had heard of Grobschnitt's Solar Music live concept. Indeed an interesting track, a bit in the musical line of their previous Svetanie album, but nothing spell-binding past the Grobschnitt allusions. Hledám Své Vlastní is a keyboard-led track that hovers between Eloy and Yes. Closing the first side is Rajky probably the most complex of the album and has a definite Yes twist to it, but again vocally this is a cross of Ian Gillan meeting with Jon Anderson.

The flipside starts on the Zmoudření Babím Létem, a great and furious track that even Crimson clone like Anekdoten couldn't possibly match in terms of energy and is possibly my fave on the album with the opening Krokem track. Again the strong Eloy tendency resurfaces on this track. The 12-min scorcher Zázrak Jedné Noci is another excellent mini-epic, especially in its use of heavy/minor scale passages and its alternance between spacey/jazzy stretches and more symphonic lines ala Yes (especially in Hladic's Steve Howe-inspired lap steel guitar solos).

As with Freso leaving ME to refound CM and later Fermata prior to this album, Vesely would leave the group to reform Synkopy, the album comes with a bunch of later non-albums single releases, obviously shorter (due to the format), all sung as well and recorded after Veseny's departure. The six bonus tracks included are not much added value to the original album, sounding like typical AOR of the late 70's with an Italian vocal delivery, with the lengthier Fotka being the best of the lot, but not coming to the waist-height of the lesser original album tracks. Nevertheless, beside these slight drawbacks, Svet Hledacu is very much in the ME trio of "must- discover" lists, even being at moments better than Svetanie, but unfortunately ruined by the unwise choice of bonuses.

4 stars This was BLUE EFFECT's most Symphonic record and there's lots of vocals as well. This didn't sit that well with the Jazz / Fusion fans who prefered their earlier sound, but Prog fans for the most part were quite pleased with this offering. The bass player left to be replaced by a second keyboard player. I really like the synths in this one because they bring lots of atmosphere to the table.

"Za Krokem Zen" opens with the organ floating in before the band kicks in quickly. It settles 2 minutes in. Vocals before 3 1/2 minutes in as the organ floats back in. It kicks back in again. The drums dominate 5 1/2 minutes in then it settles again. I like the synths that follow. It kicks back in before 8 1/2 minutes with guitar. Nice. Vocals are back before 10 minutes. Great tune. "Hledam Sve Vlastni Ja" opens with piano and atmosphere. Vocals before 1 1/2 minutes. A great sounding melancholic tune.

"Rajky" opens with drums and a fairly heavy sound. Clavinet follows then it settles 2 minutes in. It picks back up and vocals arrive before 3 1/2 minutes. The guitar solos as drums pound before 5 minutes.Vocals are back. Excellent track. "Zmoudreni Babim Letem" has a good heavy intro with some killer organ. The guitar joins in too. A calm after 1 1/2 minutes as reserved vocals join in. I really like the synths too. It picks up some 5 minutes in. Guitar 6 1/2 minutes. Incredible ! "Zazrak Jedne Noci" opens in a mellow way with reserved vocals before it kicks in before 1 1/2 minutes. Contrasts continue. The song stops 6 minutes in then builds with drums and synths. Cool sound as the guitar also joins in. This reminds me of PINK FLOYD.

I like this better than the previous album. A very solid 4 stars.

5 stars Modry Efekt was one of the leading progressive rock bands not only from Czechoslovakia in the '70 but aswell from enntire eastern Europe. In 1979 they released what was and still is one of the best progressive rock albums of all times - Svet Hledacu ? World of Searchers. This album is really a masterpice, is a turbulent album where each musician shines, specially the head of the band and one of the most inventive guitarist I've ever came across Radim Hladík, absolutly stunning guitar player. So, to my ears this is heavy prog with some spacey moments added in the mix like on opening track, amazing combination that goes very well in the end, the guitar, keyboards and the voice is brilliant. Less jazzy then previous works, this album has it all, from odd tempo changes, very solid guitar chops, long complicated passages where everything is well done, compose and performed. Every piece is a winner for sure, not a second of weakness here, the beautiful Hledám své vlastní já, the crimsonesque atmosphere on Zázrak jedné noci and Rajky with powerfull and energic playing make from this album a tresure. I was hit like a train when I heared this album few years ago, and now after some spining is no diffrent, one of the best album in my collction and one of my fav aswell. The musicianship is top notch, the arrangements and al aswell excellent. The Cd re issue by Bonton is ok, with 6 bonus tracks that are far less great then original album. 5 stars easy, highly recommended and for sure one of the hidden treasures of prog rock from Eastern Europe and among the most captivating albums from late '70s, a must have album for sure..

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Here's the third album by Modry Efekt I've plunged myself into and yet again I am amazed at how progressive this band was. Not only progressive in the sense that their genre is prog but just how progressive they were when it comes to develop and expand their musical formula. If the album "Modry Efekt & Radim Hladik" was more in the vein of jazz rock, "Svitanie" all the more symphonic than this album goes all the way, being a totally symphonic and progressive rock album, void of the bluesier sounds of the past. The earthiness of "Svitanie" is gone, as is much of the jazz rock of Modry efekt & Radim Hladik", albeit the fusion parts remain, but the symphonic aspects of "Svitanie" is there, as I wrote slightly earlier, in all it's glory, refined and developed to satisfaction.

The opener "Za krokem zen" is my favorite. Amazing symphonic stuff, well played and constructed. The slowed down outro is for me brilliance on a plate (or disc). Utterly brilliant piece of music. The remainder of the tracks are equally impressive, combining melody with progressive complexity and inspiration. There are heavy parts, spacey parts, beuatiful parts and everything else you ever could wish for in a symphonic band's output. The vocals can be a bit challenging but do not let that scare you. In the end you will grow accustomed to the singer, I think. He is a bit strained but at least he is in tune.

The album is compared to other great albums of the genre totally in par with the competition. It is simply a fantastic album to explore and grow to love. And do listen to "Za krokem zen" and the version recorded by the band for television in 1976. It can be found on Youtube and is really a treat to hear the version from three years before this album came out.

4 stars Blue Effect (as I prefer to think of Modry Efekt, seeing how that's what the band wanted to call themselves until the Czechoslovakian authorities took exception to what they saw as undue capitalist influences) play an intriguing style of mellow, jazzy progressive rock on Svět Hledačů. With not just one but two band members (Lesek Semelka and Oldřich Veselý) on keyboards, the band are able to generate a shimmering, synth-drenched soundscape as a backing for the adept guitar playing of Radim Hladík. Working from a hybrid of King Crimson, the jazzier end of Canterbury, and perhaps the most experimental portions of Relayer-period Yes, the Blue Effect is a very fine effect indeed.

5 stars This is without doubt the strongest Modry Efekt album. It's a lot spacier than everything else they've put together. It lacks the jazz/fusion sound that was prevalent on the previous albums, instead being straightahead symphonic/space rock. The vocals are an acquired taste, but they don't bring th ... (read more)
