3 stars Please don't take this review personally - I am doing this strictly for the benefit of the prog "purists". I don't know where anyone got the idea that this is symphonic progressive? This is a folk-rock band, perhaps art-rock, but they have no "balls" to be called symphonic. This is a very good album, nonetheless, with great melodies and even some mellotron here and there. Very pleasant to curl up to on an misty October day and all that, but don't expect any powerful stuff - no guitar solos, no moog solos, no grinding B-3, no meter changes... Sounds like the whole album is an interlude to something that never materializes... Those who are used to Genesis etc. will find themselves wondering "where the goodies are". But nice pleasant country-flavoured songs from La Belle Province.
