4 stars Although Ekseption was essentially an instrumental band, this album as well as the third album features a singer, even though a lot of the compositions are instrumental. Beggar Julia's Timetrip is based on a story of a man who travels through time in a spaceship and observes the great composers at work. Thus, the story is of course a perfect setting for introducing some rock/jazz versions of Albinoni's Adagio, Bach's Italian Concerto and Tchaikovsky's piano concerto garnished with some Beethoven. Much more than on their first album this one features music written by Rick, who offers some very explosive Hammond on Pop Giant, experiments with synthesizers, and uses the church organ to conclude the album. Featured on this album are also the trumpet of Rein van den Broek and the sax of Dick Remelinck. This really is a must have album.
