5 stars Amazing album for many generations to come.

The Cantafabule double album opens with a long piece called Invocatie, where all characters that will accompany us throughout the following journey are presented. Highly imaginative idea of combining music and poetry in a simultaneous dialog.

From here on we are taken into the misterious world of allegory and fable. Flawless musicianship and inspired lyrics, working perfectly together please the ear, mind and soul.

As somebody before mentioned, there is not a weak point on this album, even though it plays to around 70 min.

If you like Harmonium and Jethro Tull (in 70's), you will love this album. If you like ELP and Tangerine Dream, you will find samples of Synthesizer of high sensitivity.

Even though fairly unknown outside of the former "Iron Courtain", Cantafabule still is a masterpiece of the progrock genre.

Highly recommended !
