4 stars One of the things many reviewers miss about this album is that is was specifically planned.

At the time of its conception, Phillips Corporation (a Dutch company) was promoting their new recording system (24-track tape, if I recall properly), and they recruited Rik van der Linden and Ekseption as the premier orchestal rock band in the Netherlands at that time.

The combination of Phillips' corporate influence and van der Linden's credentails as a composer gave them access to one of the finest pipe organs in the world, and this album was largely (if not entirely) recorded in a cathedral in Holland. The selection of tracks was dominated by what would demonstrate the capabilities of the recording system rather than those of the band - but in the end, that was not a bad thing.

No matter - this is an album that clearly demonstrates the debt progressive rock owes to classical music, and stands on its own merits.
