Prog Reviewer
4 stars This is a solid Japanese symphonic prog offering which, though hailing from the 1980s, feels more like a continuation of the classically-influenced 1970s prog styles than it does as part of the then-contemporary neo-prog movement. Eishyo Lynn's piano and synthesiser work has a stately, refined tone to it which lends a certain bombast and gravitas to proceedings.

However, the band's real secret weapon is Eigo Utoh; without Utoh, they'd be a perfectly competent power trio in the ELP synths/bass/drums mode, but with Utoh's violin work and lead vocals go the extra mile in giving the band their own distinctive character which saves them from being a mere nostalgia act.

Warthur | 4/5 |
