Prog Reviewer
3 stars I can relate to most 3 star rated reviews about this album roughly. I too think this is quite an overrated piece of progressive art, at least where my personal taste is concerned. And I don't feel this is sheer symphonic prog either. More like 50% symphonic and 50% prog folk. And I also agree this can be called sort of hippie music indeed proven by the art work.

The shorter tracks are more or less forgettable but even the second longest track, Depuis L'Automne isn't mindblowing by any means to me. Just the instrumental epic is really worthwhile to me and secures the 3 star rating in the end. By far the most progressive track and worthy of 4 stars at least. (and the only one with significant mellotron by the way)

But the rest is barely more than 3 star level if you ask me and therefore I can't go further than 3 stars for the entire album. Not bad but not too special either.
