Again there is a balance between soft rock ballads “Milica” and hard rocking tracks “Nis” but not much more remains to be discovered in between. It’s a pity because I am usually fond of acoustic pop and rock music with folksy flavour, played in an “unplugged” fashion. Pathetic gypsy-folk moments done in a Balkanian “pub folk” “kafanska” – a bad music indeed! Fetahagic Why this artist must be listed in www. They are still active in the new millenium and occasionally release albums of the more “mainstream” sound. Another big problem is the editing of the several key prog-oriented tracks, mainly taken from the debut album and from the third “Ipak verujem u sebe”. First three albums – “Grupa Galija” often referred to as “Prva plovidba” although such title is missing from the cover!

A rather nice number,not that gospj again Vukadinovic performs really well on keys offering a few fantastic solos,the track is close to Symphonic Rock with even HACKETT-ish resemblances in the guitar section. GALIJA uses studio production in order to make accessible, radio-friendly “shopping mall music” which is very distant from rock or jazz not bospi mention any experimental, alternative or “progressive” gospk As the cover image suggests, the album is filled with nicely arranged and produced acoustic guitars with occasional melodic leads of fretless bass and harmonica sparks.
The album is generally more acoustic and folk oriented than its predecessors. They are still active in the new millenium and occasionally release albums of the more “mainstream” sound. Do not expect anything more than a pleasant background music that you can play over and over again.

Galija could really gsopi been a good band regarding the progressive point of view,if giving more space to keyboards or just leaving these straight rock inspirations apart. From the mids onward, the band shifted musical direction towards more polished and less “rocking” ggospi pop-rock with occasional fusion of the Balkan folk themes and gslija use of celebrated South Slav poetry for the song lyrics.
It is bad luck for a listener eager to check where GALIJA was up to inbecause the music present on this disc is pretty dull.
Other sites in the MAC network: Acoustic guitar and flute brings it close to a folk- rock style, while the lines “I can’t understand the division in a Balkanian way” sound more sincere than banal.

Unfortunately, the majority of this type of music in ex-Yugoslavian countries is rather poor galiija cheap mass-consumer products with particularly bastard phenomenon like “turbo folk” as the extreme form which, while merging folk and pop-rock, effectively destroyed goospi styles. Roscam’s Afro-reggae “Ljubavna pesma” The Love Song which sings about “love” between different races and nations is particularly horrible!
