Na Lepem Prijazni biography
Slovenian act NA LEPEM PRIJAZNI was formed in 1978 by Toma? Sr?en (bass), Roman ?kraba (drums), Polde Poljan?ek (saxophone) and Vojko Aleksic (guitars). Later they were joined by Andrej Trobentar (vocals), and following the replacement of Sr?en and Poljan?ek with Al Stone (bass) and Andrija Pu?ić (keyboards) they band stabilized. Until the band went into hiatus in 1981 they explored their own take on jazzrock and fusion on stage and one one full length production: The self-titled production Na Lepem Prijazni from 1980.

When the band went into hiatus in 1981 it was planned as a temporary condition. But it would actually take 24 years for the band to reform. But in 2005 the band got back together again. Or, more precisely, a new version of the band were assembled. This second go for the band was given a slightly altered name due to the differences in line-up, now going by the name of NA LEPEM PRIJAZNI MUTANT. Issued the same year, the second full length production by this ensemble was named Potaplja Se Raj / Paradise Drowning. Accompanying original members Trobentar and Aleksic we find Davida Jarha (trumpet), Tinkare Kova (vocals, flute), Ota Pestnerja (vocals), Stojana Kralja (bass, guitars), Boruta Praperja (drums), Matije malcelja (programming), Lada Jake (sax) and Zdravka Zimia (sax).

4 stars I already reviewed the original debut LP of NA LEPEM PRIJAZNI so I won't comment much about the music here on this compilation (it's pop, funk, jazz, art rock, it's fun and it doesn't take itself too seriously, out of the bigger names maybe some BULDOZER (and by proxy ZAPPA) and just a hint of GENTLE GIANT feel on eclectic parts). I will say that I don't really recommend anyone looking out for the original vinyl since this compilation has the whole album on CD with two songs on the single they released "Faeton" and "Crna Ovca", so just going by sound quality I find this one better. Some songs have this short (around 10 seconds at most) intro or outro which I thought were a bit of random noise connection between songs on vinyl but they're not lost here, so that's ok too (not that the album was originally interconnected or anything). Basically, this is the best starting point if you're interested in checking out this band.

4 stars This compilation is actually just Na Lepem Prijazni's self titled debut album, with the tracks in a different order, with the two additional tracks, Faeton and Crna Ovca, which were originally released as the two sides of a separate single, added on.

The band reminds me a bit of 10CC, using established pop styles as a basis for their songs, then adding unusual accoutrements to spice them up. There is also a trace of an Oingo Boingo-like energy as well.

Only Suckidandsee is sung in English. I wish I understood their native language, as I presume that they are having as much fun with the lyrics as they are with the music.

This collection seems to place the more progressive tracks toward the end of the album, and Daljevidi, ninth in the order is the most traditionally progressive song here.

The more I listen to this album, the more I enjoy their obvious delight with the material.

3.5 stars, rounded up.

— First review of this album —
3 stars 3.5 stars actually for this interesting band! NA LEPEM PRIJAZNI began their history in 1978 in then what was Yugoslavia after their leader Andrej Trobentar left SEDEM SVETLOSNIH LET ("Seven Light Years") which would eventually become later on the more famous avant-rock band BULDOZER with MARKO BRECELJ. Between SEDEM SVETLOSNIH LET and NLP Andrej founded a band 6 KILOMETARA NA SAT ("6 KILOMETERS PER HOUR") which would later on become the rio avant-garde BEGNAGRAD. Andrej brought some of this mood in the new band as well, considering the sometimes wacky lyrics, use of ska singing and sometimes silly mood. I like to think this is what BULDOZER would maybe sound like if they started out in the 80's but with less avantgarde approach and with more jazz and fusion in the mix.

Overall sound of the album is pretty accessible, sometimes rather groovy and funky as well, hence in sales often described under art rock. Vocals suit the music perfectly, it is mostly sung in slovenian language with some ramblings and vast palette of screams and ska singing that goes with the flow, one notable difference being the song "Suckitandsee" which is in english and the chorus of which is on par with controversies BULDOZER sang on their debut ("Take it or leave it, suck it and see, do you do it, and do it to me") which might have got them some attention from the communist so called "trash commission" at the time. The music lingers but sometimes ventures fully in eclectic prog territory, most notably on the instrumental "Ernebjes" or the almost-instrumental "Marginalna Infekcija" ("Marginal Infection") which might give people a GENTLE GIANT feel. Other tracks aren't throwaways either, except the sax-driven hit single "Lisica" ("Fox"), "Cao" or "Medvedove Hruske" which don't do much for me.

Another term that I don't throw around the progressive rock circles usually is that it's fun. Just genuinely fun record, and I think it's a sign of decent music if I keep coming back to it and listening it this often, and that's something I don't do with the established prog masterpieces (I don't have the patience to listen to "Close To The Edge" every time I'm riding on a bus). I might be coming back and changing it to full 4 star rating just for that reason.

In conclusion, this was was as prog as it gets in the 80's in Yugoslavia as all the old dinosaurs have left their golden era and disbanded or entered clumsily in the time of new wave and punk. At this time only the bands IGRA STAKLENIH PERLI and TAKO were still active (only because they started making early 70's space rock in 1979) and there was one more worthy album from the fusionists SMAK in 1981, but there was nothing groundbreaking that would be for the new decade. Even BULDOZER lost their spark at this time, with only DR. SPIRA coming later on with more experimental stuff using new wave as a starting point. Not that I would call NA LEPEM PRIJAZNI to be a trendy band but they don't seem out of place or time and it would have been interesting to hear them develop their style over years with more LP's but it wasn't meant to be, leaving us only with the reunion album more than 20 years later.
