5 stars What had been impressively started up on first IF album, found its cosequent development and maturity in their second,called 'IF2' . I really can not find single weak point on this release, but I would like to excerpt my favourites - from A side of the record that's Morrissey's 'Sunday sad' with its spanish like guitar tune, supported by flute and powerful bass with a lot of tempo changes; from the B side it is 'Shadow and echoes' which transforms from its slow, almost ballad entry into pure jazz streaming. From this side, very interesting is also closing number, not only because of its peculiar title, but much more of one IF characteristic clearly present on this track - balanced contribution of each of 7 band members in performing their music. This album is my personal IF favourite, therefore no doubt - five stars !
