3 stars This is a compilation album that was released in 1996. KORNI GRUPA only put out three studio albums (in the seventies) but they released a lot of singles.This compilation combines both sides of the band as we get three singles (one of them done live) and four of their more Progressive tracks. Of the four proggy tunes only one of them isn't on the first or second album, so even to hear this one song will make this worth seeking out if your a KORNI GRUPA fan. It's also the longest song on here as well at around 17 minutes.

"Put Na Astok" is from their debut album and is probably the one I like the most. I won't get into details considering i've just reviewed this track. "Divija Jagode" was a B-Side single and is an uptempo track with vocals and some excellent guitar. "Prvo Svelto U Kuci Broja 4" is the one track worth hearing for Prog fans who already have their first two studio albums.This is an unreleased track that has some great moments. It is kind of bluesy though and I don't like the vocals before 2 minutes but the guitar shines.

"Etida" is the one song I dislike. An A-side single but it's too ballad-like for my tastes. "Jedna Zena" is actually the B-Side song to the previous single but this is live so they've stretched it out to around 12 1/2 minutes. The final two songs are from their second studio album called "Not An Ordinary Life". "Generation" is average but I do like the final self titled track. It sounds like a cross between Zappa and WIGWAM.

Sure this would be a good place to check out how this band sounds but I still think the debut studio album is their best and the place i'd recommend you begin.
