4 stars Warning: Contains the happiest song of all time...

Harmonium were a short-lived Canadian symphonic/folk band that released three studio albums between 1974 and 1976. This sophomore effort was a concept album with one song for each of the seasons, and a fifth track representing a new and imaginary season.

The Good: This is a truly beautiful album with a mentality reflected by its surreal cover art. With each piece comes a different style, ranging from the super buoyant Dixie with its signature piano solo, to the calm and reflective En Pleine Face. The seventeen minute finale Histoire Sans Paroles has an almost hypnotic quality to it and flows effortlessly.

The Bad: Depuis L'Automne is slightly drawn out but even that is hardly worth mentioning.

The Verdict: One of the most emotional and welcoming albums I have ever heard, and a worthy contender for the Prog Archives top twenty.

Starhammer | 4/5 |
