5 stars 4.5 stars. Tom Ozric as usual hit the nail on the head in describing this Yugoslavian band from the late seventies. Very PINK FLOYD-like and were talking the "Saucerful Of Secrets" era with a dash of HAWKWIND and Krautrock. Man I have been enjoying this album.

"Gusterov Trg" is spacey with sparse sounds to open then it starts to pick up and it kicks in before 2 minutes followed by vocals. The guitar lights things up before 3 minutes. "Solarni Modus" opens with piano, drums, guitar and more reminding me of FLOYD. It settles in with a good beat and prominant guitar 2 1/2 minutes in. "Putovanje U Plavo" is a fantastic track that opens in a spacey manner with a beat. Keys, vocals and a heavier sound 2 minutes in. Great sound here. This reminds me of HAWKWIND. Ripping guitar after 4 1/2 minutes. The guitar stops but the beat continues as it becomes very psychedelic.

"Pecurka" is my favourite and one of the best psychedelic tunes i've ever heard. It's humming to start and it's dark. A beat slowly pounds then whispered vocals and creepy guitar expressions come in. It's FLOYD-like after 3 minutes as it builds with the guitar crying out. It kicks in after 4 1/2 minutes. Nice. It then settles back. So good ! "Majestetski Kraj" opens with organ and moog? and it's building 2 minutes in until we are rocking pretty good.

It's interesting how many East European countries seem to follow musical trends many years later because of how difficult it was to get Western music in past the Communist governments. So yes this was released in 1979 but that for me is not a negative at all. A must for Psychedelic fans.
