4 stars 4.5: The third album by the Japanese band Far East Family Band. Always regarded as the first prog band from japan, it is a band pretty influenced by the experimental era of pink floyd and tangerine dreams. In fact, one of the things that make me get interested is the participation of Klaus Schulze as a mixer and producer, they met him in a trip in europe. Musically, is pretty good it has a classic space rock feeling mostly using the keyboards and synths to set the ambient and background of the music, one thing that I am grateful is that they have a direction in the music composition, because most of the space rock bands tends to only make jamming and thats it. About the vocals, I can only say that they go well and make the songs more enjoyable, although I can tell what they talk about, because they are in japanese. Finally, I really liked this album, this was too close for being a masterpiece but the first song (Metempsychosis) is not as good as the others, so sadly it is not consistent. An excellent addition to any prog collection and a must to have for any space rock fan.
