3 stars A familial album, not a familiar one. :-)

On this second shot by Magical Power Mako (not with his bandmates but with his family), his experimental trial as the previous work is suppressed but gets to be more sensitive and theoretical for music. That is, in my humble opinion, Mako might accept that everything eccentric is not alright but consistency of music should be needed. With featuring many kinds of instruments, he might consider the important thing is musical integration. Well, please listen to the first half named as 'Butch Side'. The stream-like starting of the first track Andromeda is the proof as above mentioned. Oh, I see, the integration could be constructed because he was the one and only player in this work. Tundra, with quiet and cold psychedelia, next Oriental chandelier Silk Road, and wonderfully hot and juicy Woman in South Island...all are made so compact, not scattered. Could they be easy for us to listen? Leaving Butch's voice behind (sorry), Pink Butch (Lalala) is a beautiful piece of cake. Very sweet, very melancholic, and very feminine. Maybe because Mako liked to show his feminine appearance on media...? :-) Long and a little boring refrain is, I suggest, as flowing to the 5th 'Music From Heaven'. The latter half, named as Rock side, is like a sandwich with Sound 3 and each track. Especially I should push Rock Baby In Meadow as Mako showing consideration for his baby Rock. Yes, therefore this is a familial album. Of course, with full of exotic flavour and Mako's humming (!) Majorica Resistance Song goes floating, and Cosmos Sandglass is his laidback heart... Feel that Mako play with relaxed style.

So far from experimental rock but this album can prove that his family was (is still now?) so spacey and psychedelic. :-)
