  Progressive Music in Belgium -review page-
It is a very good idea that the Flemish (=Dutch speaking part of Belgium) prog association, Prog-nose, worked together with the Wallonian (=French speaking part of Belgium) magazine Prog-Resiste to release a compilation of unknown progressive groups in Belgium, to stimulate the existence of such a scene in Belgium.
Today the hard core of this “scene” consist of much more conservative music lovers than those who were looking for surprises in the ‘70’s, redefining the genre to a degree of melodic exploitation of the previous middle of the road heritage of the most known groups at each stage in time.
Their music is for me basically in fact pop music with harder rock instruments and some melodic interventions, the kind of neo-prog I find inferior to the old definition of progressive, even when the band tends towards moodier moments.

This embedment in psychoanalysis is explained by the traditional openness of psychoanalysis for music and by the intensive theoretical thinking concerning the relationship between art and psyche within the Belgian psychoanalytic societies (Belgische School voor Psychoanalyse/Ecole Belge de Psychanalyse and the Gezelschap voor  Psychoanalyse en Psychotherapie).
The development of the artist is especially accentuated, which enables the future music therapist to speak through and to fully understand the language of music.
