2 stars Even the look at the cover picture is enough worrying... a female body turned into a guitar, for playing... You probably expect a rediculous sexist heavy metal jerking off, but you get even worse - a prog rock band who lost direction and meaning.

When you hear first three songs it is obvious that TESKA INDUSTRIJA blew this time out. After the opening Zeppelinesque heavy guitar rock and a jovial country-tinged blue collar beer-drinkin' hit "U nasem poslu i zanatu" ("In Our Work and Handicraft"), here comes the disco disaster with female back vocals calling "Probajte divni mladici" ("Just Try, You Beautiful Boys"). Try what? Is this not the VILLAGE PEOPLE dancing?! Well, the leader Lendjel was right to have left the band shortly after the recording sessions, so when the album finally appeared on the market, the band was no more. The remaining listening time is wasted on another heavy rock misstep and an awful piano-led ballad where Kovacevic's vocal sounds quite weak. I guess both the poor production and the sub-standard songwriting made him sing terribly inconvincing. The title track is another heavy one with a fine guitar solo of Hadziabdic, while the closing ballad under the significant title "Odlazi Teska industrija" ("Teska Industrija Is Leaving") contains acoustic guitars and symphonic coda. The only worthwhile moment on this record happens to be the most prog rock oriented: "Grijeh" ("The Sin"). It is very good (but not excellent) composition with varying themes, led by Hammond organ and this time a good vocal performance by Kovacevic. Hints of URIAH HEEP are everpresent and its 5,5 minutes saves this album from the worst garbage.

"Zasviraj i za pojas zadjeni" (I am not able to translate) is a weak album and it marks the end of the first and the most productive phase of TESKA INDUSTRIJA. Unfortunately it ends this way and they were never gonna repeat the succes of the Vajta line-up.


P.A. RATING: 2/5
