3 stars Harmonium chapter 1

While this is a quaint and charming collection of folksy soft rock songs it must be pointed out that this is significantly less stunning than the masterpiece that would follow it, the wonderful Saisons album. It is not awful by any means though. If you enjoy simple melodies strummed pleasantly on acoustic guitars with great vocal harmonies this might be right up your alley. There are occasional flashes of the gem that was coming especially in the ability of the music to convey a range of emotion both sad and sunny. There are some lovely flute and piano passages. Some of the tracks feature tasteful but reserved drumming. While certainly recommended to Harmonium fans who want to hear their entire musical journey, I feel it is harder to make the case that this album is essential to the wider progressive rock community. 3 stars.
