Review by slipperman
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars Yuck. When it comes to Symphonic Progressive Rock, Ekseption lacks the "progressive" and "rock" aspects. By the time this album was released (1972), marrying rock instrumentation and symphony orchestra was nothing new (see Procol Harum, Deep Purple, The Moody Blues, etc.) Simply combining the styles can't automatically be called a progressive gesture. There must be something more there. And I can find no trace of rock here. Ekseption's music lacks that viseral element necessary for anything labelled "rock". There might be drums and electric bass guitar here, but their role is downplayed, and their rhythmic attack, if you can even call it that, is feeble.

There is no doubting Rick Van Der Linden's talent. He certainly possesses plenty of inspiration to even try modern interpretations of Bach and Mozart pieces, and his stabs at original composition are commendable. But too many times the final result is less crashing symphonic color and more cheesy lite-jazz inflected pop (ie. early Chicago). Not even a song co-written by Keith Emerson ("For Example/For Sure") can stave off the album's dull plod.

I would give this one star because it's so unattractive to my ears and, I imagine, the ears of many symphonic prog fans who would rather hear Eela Craig, The Enid or indeed, ELP, do this sort of thing. But I'll give it another star for the band's inarguable talent, and because Van Der Linden does produce a few squiggly synth sounds that can't help but make even the most discerning prog fan smile. Most of it just makes me cry, cuz I spent $12 on this piece of vinyl and will probably never be able to sell it back at half the price. More fool me.

PROG REVIEWER
2 stars Quite a disapointment , really. True, I knew Ric Van Der Linden from the band Trace in the mid seventies and I was expecting something in that vein. I mean, good, symphonic prog rock. And instead what I got was an instrumental album that triees to mix, unsuccessfully I should say, jazz, rock and classical music (very few rock, be aware). The results are far from satisfying, bordering the ´cocktail´ jazz-pop type. After so much praising I heard from a lot of prog fans i could not help but feeling they were talking about a different record.

Not that everything here is bad. No. There are some nice tracks like classical influenced Virginal and the playful song My Son (even if the silly child´s noise in the background isa bit too cheesy, he had the right to do so). But most of the time the stuff is uninteresting jazz/rock/classical fusion that goes nowhere. Not really Just plain boring stuff, but I´ve heard this kind of mix done much better by ELP and others. A pity, since it is obvious that the musicians involved are all excellent ones. Even the use of instruments like trumpet and flugelhorn, not very commonly associated to a prog band, could lift it up.

If you´re into some soft jazz, this record may be a good pick. For progheads I found very few worthy moments. To me, 5 is for collectors and fans only. 2 stars.

3 stars Time has gone since I reviewed "Trinity" and now it's time for Ekseption's fifht release with the name and number "5". The record was recorded 1972, three years after the debut record.

2 stars Symphonic prog without rock from Holland. An album where some cries masterpiece !! and other cries poor !. It is a love/hate record. It is probably a love/hate band too. The beef: The nearest reference to this album and Ekseption is Sky, The Nice and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. But where these t ... (read more)

5 stars This is one of my preferred albums and I consider it really a masterpiece of progressive music. It has a special place in my collection of LPs.

5 stars Ekseption is with no doubt the most successful progressive rock band (yes, it is rock) when it comes to fusing rock and classical music. And quite a bit of jazz of course. This happens to be Ekseption at their very best, and it deserves no less than a masterpiece rating. ... (read more)

4 stars At the time of writing this album has yet to be released on CD. This album starts off with Beethoven played by Rick on church organ, and it ends with Beethoven on church organ.
