2 stars My vision of hell is satan himself and some sound-speakers, blasting out this album.

This is an album full of this band's versions of classic music pieces. Very few of them done with any finesse. The only saving grace here is some good work by it's keyboard player. The rest of the stuff is very annoying muzak/elevator music. Although, if you put this music in the elevator in a big apartment block, people would gladly prefer walking the stairs to the 120th floor than endure some minutes of this album. I would !

Some of the music here is ghastly and does not deserve to be called symphonic prog at all. It is not even a fusion of progressive rock, jazz and classical music. It is rock and jazz violating the remains of Ludwig Van Beethoven and the other classical composers. Although not legally regarded as vandalism, Ekseption is challenging the laws in this respect. The trumpet and saxophone is very annoying on this album. Some of the music even sounds like a Mexican brass band after a tequila bottle too many. This product has nothing to do with progressive rock. It is a matter for the courts.

The only saving grace is some good keyboard work. 2 stars and I want to live forever (avoiding an eternity in hell together with this album).
