5 stars I can barely describe this album. One of the first Yugoslavian (Yugoslavian? Is that right?) album I heard with intensity. After the more rock centred (and quite good) previous offerings, Drago Mlinarec offers a full folk-and-beyond album.

I said "and beyond" exactly because, after listening the two other albums we are lead to believe in something more closely to the early format. Fortunately, the initial sounds of rain already stop whatever though you have in the moment, allowing the melodie to unfold in a good trip. The melodies are developed slowly, mainly in acoustic guitar and later with keyboards. The music itself never sits quietly in any place - you do have the sensation of flowing through all of them.

A early Pink Floyd atmosphere follow the whole work, especially the last song, that reminds more a "Meddle" aproach. The acoustic guitar of Drago, the power house of the album, could be compare with Ian Anderson playing... but Drago really has different backgrouds and sound quite unique.

A musical voyage to figure among the best of Yugoslavian scene. 5 stars.

GKR | 5/5 |
