4 stars For the third album the story 'Le Petit Prince' of Saint Exupery was the source of inspiration. The opening track, 'Peace planet' was a big hitsingle, very remarkable for an all instrumental track based on a Badinerie written by Bach. Two of the songs on this album feature a singer, the rest is all instrumental music. Bach is featured in two compositions, Rachmaninoff is used in 'On Sunday they will kill the world', Grieg is incorporated in Bottle Mind, and finally the last track on the album is Beethoven's Rondo from his third pianoconcerto, which transforms after the initial theme into a very relaxed Jazz waltz with great solos from Dick Remelinck, Rein van den Broek. The other compositions are written by Rick van der Linden again, of which the most notable is the Piece for Symphonic and Rock Group in A minor, where a sad orchestral movement leads into a fiery explosion of Rick on the piano. In short: an excellent album which was re-released on the double CD 'Three Originals'.
