Prog Reviewer
3 stars The fifth album I explore by Modry Efekt is actually quite an amazing one. Coming off the blues and heading straight into this jazz rock-thing impresses me immensely. At first I listened only casually, on low volume, thinking it must be my future favorite by the band. When re-discovering it with headphones on I soon realised that it may not be.

The music on Coniunctio is very experimental and of it's time. The free form experiment on here is a bit much for me to swallow. The title track is cuirously enough a strange brew of free form and some sort of sturcture, which makes it all the more puzzling. The second track is slightly more conventional and the only track I truly enjoy. The remainng two is harder to digest.

I like the sound of the album, that is the sound of early 70's jazz rock with flutes and organ and whatnot. The problem for me lies more in the lack of structure. To me it becomes simply an exepriment in free form and I am not there. Yet, anyway. Maybe I will sometime change my mind but for now it is not really suited for my taste.

As a result of that, I will give the album two stars for the musical content and one star for the great effort and sound. If I want to listen to free form I will listen to Coniunctio, and I am going to return to it many more times to see if I grasp it. Until then, three stars.
