4 stars Even quite blamed by people there, I like this short, little (very short, just 29 minutes) album that still has a lot to offer. Symphonic tradition of Belgium is indeed long and don't take me bad guys, I understand with the facts you are providing.

Prog development in different countries is different too, this is why I don't care much that it's 1977. The only "cheesy" song here and I mean really intentionally cheesy would be Vivid Memories, this melody is like Swiss (or Belgium) chocolate. White type.

So because I have no problem with sweetness (I don't mind it), then this album shines in what it provides, quite synthesized Symphonic Prog. The World of the Tree has nice flute moments, while Rumble of Drums is nice outro funny song.

Most of songs are having its share of multi-choral vocals, which is another thing I can appreciate. It may sound too pop at first look/hearing, but there are Prog twists here and there.

4(-) is my rating for such albums.
