Scented Gardens of Mind:
Their first album contained cover versions of recent blues and soul numbers and is of little interest. Město ER is a strange, old-fashioned concoction of progressive rock, beat, pop songs, folk and jazz, with some strings and brass added. The title track was a 20-minute song cycle dealing with the imaginary city Er. The lyrics were written by the poet Josef Kainar, who is quite well-known in his homeland. The music is related to Progres Organization and Flamengo and even to Blue Effect's fusion attempts in the period between 1970-72. The second side of the album contained shorter and less ambitious tracks. No further albums were released until 1980. Pigeon's Dante (1980) wasn't too bad, melodic rock with hints of folk, jazz and blues. Neither of the albums credited the musicians.

Along with Framus 5, Progress Organization represented the best attempts in Czechoslovakia to play a more advanced form of pop music, constructing song cycles augmented by strings and brass on their debut album Barnodaj (1971). This was inspired by The Beatles in their Sgt. Pepper-period. Progress Organization also included their versions of "We Can Work It Out" and "I Feel Free" (the latter originally recorded by Cream).
Nothing was heard of Progress Organization until they resurfaced in the late seventies under the name Barnodaj. Another concept album of decent pop-rock songs with some orchestration then emerged - this time with a seventies-flavour, due to the frequent use of moog Synthesizer and occasional heavy guitars. A new change of name occurred before Dialog S Vesmirem (1980), a rock opera dealing with the sci-fi theme of encounters with alien civilisations. By now their sound was heavier, with more emphasis on instrumental passages of electric guitar and synthesizers (inspired by recent Pink Floyd-albums). Třetí Kniha Džunglí (1982) represented the peak of their achievements. It was another rock opera, spanning four sides of a double album. Progres 2 made further albums in the eighties but they are all rather weak attempts to modernize their sound with new wave elements.
