5 stars "Leb i sol 2" is the band's creative peak. Their strongest point are compact and colorful prog instrumentals with tight musicianship. The only ex-Yugoslavian 70's band that could similarly play flaming instrumentals was DEN ZA DEN or maybe also SMAK in their instrumental mood. The few vocal tracks are more soft and mellow but also enjoyable.

The most original element in their music are traditional Macedonian melodics and time signatures (prog is bread in their bones :) ) combined with invnetive fusion and prog. The only similar style was the ethno prog fusion made in Spain - ICEBERG, GUADALQUIVIR and also AL DI MEOLA.

After this album LEB I SOL's quality was gradually dropping. Thus their next two albums are worth the spin but after that they shared the same destiny as many other prog bands... However, the band's guitarist VLATKO STEFANOVSKI continued to make some outstanding solo projects from time to time. If you like LEB I SOL, some of his albums are a must: "Vlatko Stefanovski Trio", "Krushevo" (VLATKO STEFANOVSKI & MIROSLAV TADIC - acoustic ethno prog project), "Live in Belgrade" (live version of "Krushevo" is even better and preferable!), "Treta majka" (the most recent project with Tadic).

"Leb i sol 2" is a prog masterpiece worth finding (it's reissued on CD)!
