4 stars "Go Un" is a product of the new and reincarnated BI KYO RAN and is nothing short of Brilliant from my perspective. This time around although the KING CRIMSON jam parallels are definitely present (aka the Fripp-like guitar playing of Junio Suma), "Go Un" is wildly contrasted with Jazz trumpets and alto / baritone saxes, piano and loads of percussive / timpanic instrumentation, clearly creating a wonderful and unique sound experience. "Go-Un" unfolds with many different themes and moods and although is mostly instrumental, does spotlight some vocals which are performed with great delivery. On previous BI KYO RAN albums I think it is harder to pick out the Japanese musical influences which are brought out slightly more on "Go Un". Overall a tasty and highly original album with a nice variety of soundcapes which I would highly recommend as a great discovery.
