4 stars Komfort is the most dance-oriented album of their early albums.

But it's not cheap, on the contrary. The band experiments with jungle/drum&bass, dub, reggae and trip-hop. This makes the album quite a trip to listen to. There's so much going on and it never gets boring.

Because the band uses guitar, violin, drums, bass, sequencers, drumcomputers they have a lot of colout to their sound.

My favorite song it the opener, where the drummer plays some intricate drum&bass-beats through the intro with guitars and fretless-bass and synths to complement it. Very unique, to say the least. When the song breaks down and the vocals start, the song gradually builds up again into an more pop drum&bass song. One of the greatest crossover of rock and drum&bass I ever came across.

Another heavy drum&bass almost jungle-song is the short One More Slip, wich is just amazing. If this song doesn't start you dancing in joy, nothing will.

Another Day is more some kind of trip-hop song with rock/pop leanings. A great intro with two duelling guitarsolos until the middlesection (wich is a great pop-tune) keeps you mesmerized. Also a great song to dance to.

Who says progrock isn't meant to dance to, and have great time? Hungarian bands know how to blend dance and progrock/spacerock into something great (Korai Orom, Zagar and Masfel are other great examples).
