Prog Reviewer
4 stars Harmonium is among my absolute top 5 symphonic progressive rock bands of all time, no doubt about it. The rock element here is almost nonexistent, however. This is acoustic folk composing at it's best. Though this album isn't as elaborate on their sophomore album, the music here is equally as fantastic considering that this is their debut. The mood ranges from happy to sad quite easily, and moves from slow to fast passages with ease. Did I mention that this music is beautiful? 'Cause it is. This music isn't super progressive or epic like Harmonium's later work, and this album has absolutely no connection to bands like Genesis or Yes. This is most just extremely sophisticated folk tunes sung beautifully in the French language with a Français québécois accent.
