From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Here Barta Tamas has been replaced by another good guitarist, Karácsony János. The sound is more funky than ever before although there are still traces of hard rock that will completely disappear by the next album. Also, there is a majestic return of the Hammond organ, though it is still outweighed by the rhodes.

The music is LGT at their best. Opening with the sound of cowbells (not the musical kind, cowbells that are worn by free-roaming cows in Hungarian plains!), and then getting into atmospheric rhodes harmonies, finally ending with a great riff embellished by a string section. "Szólj rám..." is a fantastic funk-jazz workout with rhodes, hammond, and clavinet perfectly complimenting each other with thrilling syncopation. The title track sees the band returning into hard riffing and soloing, even though it's dominated by soothing tremolo'd rhodes. Otherwise we have three good ballads, of which "Álomarcú lány" is the most memorable (and one of their most successful hits).

"Mindig magasabbra" remains one of the most consistent LGT albums, surpassing in that regard 72's "Ringasd el magad", even if that album is a bit more progressive in style.

Salviaal | 4/5 |
