3 stars Zelena posta is a strong offering by already experienced leaders of progressive rock era in Czechoslovakia: Radim Hladik, Marian Varga + pop singer Pavol Hammel. This is a loose collaboration featuring melodic pop tracks with progressive rock arrangements. While Varga's array of keyboard instruments can be heard on each track, Hladik's guitar is mostly out of spotlight, maybe apart from the track "Slnecnice" and "Cesty blaznov" with a complex middle instrumental section reminding free jazz. Hladik's presence certainly helps get a more progressive feel to the tracks. The last track is the closest in its form to a progressive rock composition a la suite, it consists of several compositionally different parts ending with a reference to "Zvonte zvonky" from 1968.

This album is not essential but still worth acquiring because documents a collaboration by Who's Who in the Czechoslovak progressive music.
