4 stars KORNI GRUPA were a very popular group in Yugoslavia in the seventies.They had the ability to churn out the pop hits but at the same time create Progressive albums like this their debut.The band was formed by the former keyboard player for INDEXI.

"Glas Sa Obale Boje" opens with this melancholic guitar followed by vocals as the sad mood continues. It picks up and gets fuller after a minute. Nice. It settles again 2 1/2 minutes in as contrasts continue. Great tune. "Put Na Istok" is around 14 minutes in length and divided into four parts.This is more lively and catchy than the opening track. Vocals around a minute. Some nice guitar after 2 1/2 minutes then we get a calm. Guitar, keys and a beat take over. This is really good. Vocals before 5 1/2 minutes then the tempo picks up. Another calm before 10 minutes as reserved vocals join in. It kicks back in before 11 1/2 minutes with more aggressive vocals.

"Moj Bol" opens with piano and percussion. Bass joins in as it builds.Vocals after 2 1/2 minutes. It then settles back as the tempo continues to shift. The guitar starts to solo around 6 1/2 minutes. Vocals are back late. "Bezglave Ja-Ha Horde" is led by drums, piano and vocals early then guitar comes in. A guitar solo after 2 minutes and some expressive vocals follow as they jam. I like this. Another guitar solo 5 1/2 minutes in as the tempo slows some. Vocals follow. "Tata Ko I Mama Spo" opens with drums, guitar and bass before the vocals join in.The guitar is playing over top after 2 minutes.The piano comes to the fore when the vocals stop, but then the guitar and vocals return to end it.

On their studio albums the band certainly were challenging themselves and their fans, especially the latter.
