3 stars You have forgotten for a several time the classical music, and it's famous composers? Well, Bach and Beethoven are still alive, here, yes, in the prog rock music. I'm talking about Ekseption; somebody said van der Linden was a great Keith Emerson follower, ,maybe; this man is a 20th century master, but he lost connection with the world after Trace, beginning his solo career. Coming back to this album, it was the third in Ekseption discography; here you can listen songs with strong vocals, but being this its weak point; and symphonic pieces like "Peace Planet", where van der linden execution is really amazing, and "The Lamplighter", with jazz influences and a exact inclusion of wind instruments. And you can't imagine this disc without "Morning Rose", or "Family, i'm going away, don't await for me, 'cause i won't come back, i'll give my body and soul for my country" and things like that. And, if you like this disc, you should have "Trinity" and the complete "Selected Ekseption" album.

Have a nice day(that's great too)
