4 stars Almost as good as Lord Of The Ages, Seasons is a very pleasant & sane progressive folk album. The progressive folk songs are quite catchy and easy to enjoy. The lead & backing vocals are excellent, being among the strongest points of the record. It globally sounds a bit like Simon & Garfunkel in a more progressive & refined manner. It is definitely an major album for 1970. One can recognize Rick Wakeman's organ solo on "Ring of Stones". There is a narration on some traks. There are some excellent orchestral arrangements on a few tracks, courtesy of the "London Symphony Orchestra". The warm acoustic bass and the omnipresent acoustic guitars contribute to enhance the overall value of this record. Usually, I'm not very fond of country music but I must admit that the such part on the "Seasons" track is very good. The delightful last song "Airport Song" reminds me the excellent Frankie Goes To Hollywood's "San Jose".
