The album marks a departure from the folk rock sound of Harmonium towards a unique progressive rock sound. Serge Fiori, Michel Normandeau and Louis Valois are joined this time by Pierre Daigneault and Serge Locat. Marie Bernard also provides her expertise for the Ondes Martenot, while Judi Richards sings in "Histoires sans paroles".
The album revolves around a seasonal concept; the first side of the original LP contains 4 tracks, each of which covers one of the traditional four seasons (Spring, Summer, Autumn/Fall, and Winter), whilst the second side of the album consists of "Histoires Sans Paroles", a 17-minute song which represents the imaginary fifth season. "Dixie" is also a notable track because of Locat's unforgettable piano solo. Si on avait besoin d'une cinquième saison, while a transitional album, became an influential album in Quebec's music history.
Some lyrics on this album, like on Depuis l'Automne can show the separatist ideology shared by the band at that time.
