by request: TIME - Zivot u cizmama s visokom petom

The third album of TIME was also the last official release, since the band soonafter disbanded. It was recorded in Germany 1976 with very good music production and excellent musicianship. Vedran Bozic's guitar work is particularly outstanding. Dado Topic's vocals on the other hand are not very coherent and strong throughout the album, while his lyrical concept about the rise and fall of a rock star and pitfalls of music business may sound naive and dated for today's listeners. This is however an interesting effort aiming at mixing prog rock with jazz-fusion and funk styles, giving certain moments a touch of a STEELY DAN-like sophistication. "Zivot u cizmama s visokom petom" (English: The Life in the High-Heeled Boots) was coupled with "Time II" for a CD re-release under the title "TIME & Dado Topic", issued in 1996, where two of the original album tracks were replaced with two hit-singles from 1976. This album is not recommended for strict prog fans, but more flexible listeners will find some fine music here nonetheless.

a sa druge strane, ovde su prvi nagovestaji Dadove muke s recima, zatrpavanja melodije isuvise pretencioznim tekstom, a sto je kulminiralo na 'Neosedlanima' - i sjebalo ga skroz
ovaj album je dobar ako se slusaju pesme pojedinacno - pre svaga zahvaljujuci odlicnim mucarima ...
mozda je Time trebao da stane polse prvog albuma i ode u legendu ...
