3 stars It was maybe a couple of weeks ago after going on a bit of an Avant binge I thought to myself I am actually a pretty big fan of the avant. Then I hear a band like BULDOZER that hard core avant fans love and realize I'm far from a fanboy of "out there" music. Their first two albums are the ones that avant fans point to as being classic avant but they are far from that in my world.

From the former Yugoslavia now Slovenia this six piece band was all about pushing people's buttons I suppose. Silly and crude lyrics thankfully in their own language with inappropriate pictures to match. They took their cue from Zappa and went a couple of levels higher(lower). I'm so not into this stuff and the vocals which have purpose in the sense that they are rough and unappealing(to match the lyrics) make this a 3 star album but a step up from their debut in my opinion.

The difference is that Zappa put a lot of focus on difficult instrumental material mostly in that jazz mode while here we pretty much get bluesy music that I'm just not that into. Yes I'm surprised at the high ratings but those are mostly from fans of that area so there's that.

The one track that I can stomach is "Jeste Li Vidjeli Devojcice" where we get some melodic music and harmonies but of course mixed with the more passionate and twisted sounds as a contrast. More of this please. I suppose I have dismissed a lot of experimental music based on the extreme vocals like soprano female vocals for example but this record offers nothing to me that would even have me considering 4 stars. 3 rude stars(haha).
