3 stars During my last visit to former Yugoslavia this past summer,I snatched this very nicely done mini-lp style box set,containing 5 albums from mid 80's commercial era of Leb i Sol.From a purely technical standpoint it's hard to find objection to this package with a huge and clean production,polished sound and almost jaw-dropping musicianship.For the person not familiar with the works of this band on first five albums,this can be considered as a very good straight pop-rock band,with the slight hints of jazziness in their sound.Also,first of five titles in this set,Kalabalakalbum is actualy very good,mostly instrumental,and still on a path of fiery fusion of previous albums,only more rockier,kinda like early Steve Morse Band.Interestingly enough,every subsequent album is more commercial,with more vocal songs,save for the Zvucni zid album,wich is a collection of unconnected pieces band made for movies or theater.Kao kakao is full blown top five commercial album filled with catchy pop-rock tunes,that rulled FMradio waves during 80's in Yugoslavia and remained best selling record for the band.Real hard-core proghead won't be able to find much thrill on this box-set,yet it's still worth investigating,Vlatko Stefanovski on guitar is just unbelievably talented,worth checking it out for that alone.
