3 stars This is certainly one of the most progressive albums by this seminal band. You must keep in mind that it was released in 1982. Before the second wave of Japanese prog rock (Pageant, Gerard, Mugen, Outer Limits, Teru's Symphonia, Pale Acute Moon...) which delighted all the smphonic prog fans (I am!). Here, you have a kind of 'prequel' featuring Gerard's keyboards wizard (Toshio Egawa) and Teru's Symphonia's guitar magician (Terutsugu Hirayama). So a lot to enjoy if you forget some high pitched vocals and AOR touches. Yes, this disc deserves your attention. Listen to the melancholy 'To Wings' or the bombastic 'The Dawn Of'. Two gems. I forget the gorgeous cover. Not essential certainly but a must for your collection if you like symphonic prog.
