This album is a mix of artists and songs. You'll probably find, as I did, that some are great and some are not. All are in Croatian, a slavic language that sounds similar to Russian. As to the songs:

"Makedo" and "Da Me Pojubis" both had an unpleasant yelling sound.
"Sanjati Cemo Zuto" was light and fun, reminding me of the peppy music you hear in Tex-Mex restaurants.
"Paranoja" was insistent and unpleasant.
"Dalmatino..." was a slow church-style chant.
"Ona za Ribara Nece" had a great intro that sounded like church bells, followed by a more modern pace and tone.
"Davno" had a peaceful strumming sound.

Worthwhile, especially if you know Slavic languages.

I am a big fan of soulful music such as Celtic, African and other world music. When I listened to the preview this sounded fantastic, but after downloading, as the songs dragged on I ended up deleting all of them one by one because they just didn't appeal to me past a minute or two into the songs.

Well, I kept half the songs, and know I like at least 3 of them after only one time listening, so this album is good and bad. The style is more folkish, some of the songs are a lot of fun that way. Others have more of a rock feel, some of those are pretty good. But like I said, I only kept about half the album.

Free download? Like world music? Yes -- try it out. Otherwise, probably not.

The songs I liked:
Ona Za Ribara Nece
Dalmatino, Poviscu Pritrujena
Da Me Pojubis

When this popped up on my Amazon recommendations, and I noticed it was free I had to give it a shot. I couldn't think of any Croatian music in particular that I'd knowingly heard. Well, as other reviews have mentioned, this is an inconsistent sampler. I don't wind up liking every track on any sampler though, and this one was free! Just squint and pretend it's a Putumayo compilation.

The first track is live, and it's hard to make live tracks enjoyable. Too much crowd noise, roughly recorded version of a song. The fourth track sounded like a cross between alterna-rock and ska, done Croatian style. Didn't dig the vocals. My husband mistook Da Me Pojubis for Italian music (from a distance), which was interesting. Dalmatino actually sounded almost hymnal.

Overall, worth a try. Just don't expect that a consistent mood was the intent here. Or, do like a bunch of us and don't expect anything in particular for free and wind up pleasantly surprised by the tracks you do like.
