4 stars I wasn't blown away like I hoped I would be but this is very good music regardless. Not as good as say SBB or FERMATA's best albums, and I mention them because they're all in the same ballpark when it comes to music style. Anyway this is top notch playing with some inventive arrangments making this a must have.

"Vysoka Stolicka, Dlhy Popol" settles in with organ before a minute. Drums join in as it builds. Nice prominant bass here too. Guitar after 3 minutes. A calm 4 1/2 minutes in with synths. A classical vibe 6 1/2 minutes in then the guitar returns and it's outstanding. Great section. "Ej, Pada Rosenka" builds to an impressive instrumental display then it settles with vocals. Beautiful guitar work before 4 minutes with crisp drumming and throbbing bass lines. Gorgeous. Vocals come in as it settles again late.

"V Sobotu Popoludni" sounds amazing with huge bass lines. It picks up with guitar before 1 1/2 minutes. Synths follow. Check out the guitar before 3 minutes. There's that bass again. "Svitanie" is the side long closer. Atmosphere to opens. Vocals before 4 1/2 minutes as the atmosphere continues. Finally it comes to life 7 1/2 minutes in with drums then guitar leading the way. The guitar is lighting it up 9 1/2 minutes in. More killer guitar after 13 minutes. It's spacey with string synths after 16 minutes. The guitar solos beautifully as drums and bass support. Vocals are back before 18 minutes as it becomes atmospheric again like the start of this song.

A solid 4 stars.
