Ooops ..... I am surprised that there are very minimum number of reviews on this excellent album bu the Dutch's Ekseption. In fact I almost forgot not writing anything about an album that colored my teenage life. I remember vividly my big brother had a cassette version of this album and I was amazed with one track that I kept playing many times when it reached this one: Improvisation. As teenager I liked something unique pertinent to certain track. Imrovisation of course blew me away at first spin as this one really reminded me to the music of another Dutch: Focus especially during the opening part where it had dynamic flute-work. I though it was played by Thijs van Leer. I was wrong, it;s Jan Vennik. The flute is really dynamic supported by relatively fast tempo music with drums, bass and synthesizer. What follow is the part where it demonstrates bass guitar solo in a very stunning way and of course it's energetic. The duration of bass guitar solo is quite long and then it follows beautifully with jaw-dropping drum-work.'s really great! The ending part is then concluded back with flute work. Overall, this track is truly a masterpiece one. Even, it's worth having this album even if you only love this track - in fact that was my case when I was teenager.

Fortunately, the album also offers other excellent tracks like "Toccata" (5:16) which has eerie organ work by Rick van der Linden. The following track is another excellent one demonstrating flute as the title implies: "The Peruvian Flute (traditional)" (8:04). The beauty of Ekseption music is the blend of all brass section, synthesizer, and flute work into one excellent composition. The other tracks are excellent as well : "Lonely Chase" (3:10) , "Romance" (3:30) and "Finale III" (2:50).

Overall, it's an excellent addition to progressive music collection that you should not miss. It offers instrumental music combining classical, pop and rock elements. Keep on proggin' ...!
