Review by Matti
COLLABORATOR Neo-Prog Team
1 stars This is just one of my lesser reviews to expand the number of the bands I have reviewed. The ones I'm not really interested in. EKSEPTION makes no exception in this matter. After painfully listening thru this double cd compilation I think I will never again return to their albums.

I have never digged The NICE's way to translate classical compositions into rock, but compared to Ekseption they at least had more balls in their results. Here you have well-known tunes by Bach, Beethoven, Vivaldi, Mozart, Gershwin, etc. transformed into very kitch pop instrumentals. Why on earth listen to them when you can listen to orchestral classical music as a real thing? Awful!

The second disc is by far more reasonable as it contains original works by Ekseption. But neither they turned me on. Some are nice, no more, no less. In my humble opinion nothing by EKSEPTION seems to stand the test of time very well, whether it's originally theirs or Bach's. (If you want alternative versions of classics, try for example Jacques Loussier's jazz albums.)

PROG REVIEWER
4 stars I think that of all the CD compilations which are available from EKSEPTION, this should be called the best, because it is a compilation which does more justice to this band, because it has one CD all the tracks which were included in their "With Love from Ekseption" double LP compilation released in the mid seventies (plus one more track, Bourée), which are arrangements done by the band to Classical Music Works. The second CD contains some of their original compositions. So, in my opinion, both aspects of this band are considered in this double CD package, and I think it is a very representative compilation of their work. This band had very good musicians in the line-ups. So, despite having several musical influences all mixed in their sound, it is very recommendable for Prog Rock fans which have interest in listening to good quality music, being it very Prog Rock or not.

3 stars Ekseption is a band with two sides. They became well known for their reworkings of classic tunes but they also wrote some interesting material themselves. On this compilation both sides of the band are present. CD one contains the "classic" material and cd two contains the selfpenned material ... (read more)
