4 stars This top notch Dutch band from my hometown The Hague had their progressive pinnacle during the early Seventies when they delivered some unique symphonic rock LP's. The album "Song of the Marching Children" belongs to the best of the Dutch progrock history. The moving song "Storm and Thunder" (as a single it reached the #6 position) contains a sumptuous church organ sound intro, soaring violin-Mellotron and great vocals from Jerney Kaagman. The epic title track (almost 19 minutes) is wonderful: the sound is very warm and melodic with lots of changing atmospheres, accelarations and surprising breaks. The one moment you hear a mellow organ, twanging acoustic guitars and a fairy-like voice from Jerney, the other moment there are bombastic eruptions with majestic Mellotron, heavy floods of organ and powerful electric guitarwork, topped by Jerney's powerful voice. This album is a touch of international symphonic rock class!
