3 stars Progresive TM was a prog rock band from Romania, Timisoara; the same city when other bands like Pheonix, Pro Musica, Celelalte Cuvinte and more recently Negura Bunget (speaking only from the band from Prog Archives) was born. By that time, Romania was in an dark age for artistic movement, becaus of the censorship from local communist regime. The line up for this album was from Harry Coradini - voice, Ladislau Herdina - guitar, voice, Ilie Stepan - bas, Hely Moszbrucker - drums, percussions, Mihai Farcas - drums, piano, percussion, Gheorghe Torz - flute. This particular album is one of the first attempt to a rock band from Romania to make prog-rock music, and now looking retrospective it was a good and essential attempt for romanian music. But comparing with other album form western Europe, this album become non-essential.

The music is a combination from heavy prog with some elements of jazz-rock and a particular flute sound. Although that some songs like Nimeni nu e singur (Nobody is not alone), Rusinea soarelui (The Shame of the sun) and Odata vei rasari (One day you will rise) are commercial oriented and the lyrics of the entire album are censored, the music is quite good. Others lsongs ike Omul e valul (The Man is like a wave) and Dreptul de a visa - Poetul deveniri noastre (The Right to a dream - The poet of our development) stands together as an authentic chapter in Romanian progressive rock. The compositions belong to Ladislau Herdina (1-3, 5-7) and Ilie Stepan (4). Ladislau Herdina will dissapear form romanian rock scene after the second Progresiv TM album Puterea Muzici and Ilie Stepan will found other musical project like Pro Musica (a heavy) and more later Stepan Project (progressive metal).
