2 stars It sounds ... strange (by the way, most hesitating start of review so far). I had in my memory, that this album is great, even masterpiece, but 80s have taken their toll. First two tracks uses heavy (like in neo-prog) too much for my taste. It's of course typical for Czech music of this era, but it's overused by my opinion. But what is very hard to get over is these weird lyrics. They're in general about human traits, struggle in life with your limits, growing, love etc. But choose of words is just not right.

"Malá dívka s čelenkou" (little girl with a trinket) is more calm song (which fits better to philosophical theme) about paradoxes of youth. That young ones can be reasonable sometimes, trying to be adult, but behave like child most of the times, without even knowing it. "U? se perem" (we're struggling now) about kids fighting for fun each other.

In fact, I like these philosophical things, but I don't have too high opinion about style how it's performed. Not that I don't like neo-prog (because this is NP more than anything else), but this combination don't fit me too much.
