3 stars The second album of this band is a concept album. Overture, prologue, spoken narrations and music. Concept album, in short.

Ekseption was a band with a huge affection for Johan Sebastian Bach. Even on this album, their have their noses firmly stucked up in the back of him. I don't think it is that original and creative to copy over his music and then release it under the name Ekseption. That's muzak; not progressive music. But Ekseption has created something here which is pretty creative. It can also pass as progressive music. The organ music here is everywhere and it is supplemented with drums, bass and some woodwinds.

The quality of the music here is pretty good overall. The storyline is good too, whatever the story is all about. The musical concept is a good one. This is the only Ekseption album I have heard so far which has some balls and some creativity. So a good three stars is in order.
