4 stars With fresh air...

ASTURIAS has come back with the masterpiece. Their passion and motivation are not lost In Search Of The Soul Trees at all. Please listen at first.

Spiritsshows exactly spirits dancing with pleasure. The key instrument should be Yoh's acoustic guitar, added with keyboard, synth strings, horn sections, and electric sounds. Feel that some spirits are dancing...sometimes quietly, and sometimes actively...little by little flying up toward the sky...and away from us abruptly. On Revelation piano backing is so beautiful and impressive. In the latter part, passionate electric guitar sounds are great, and of course steady and strict rhythm sections can construct the part completely. The last battle with multi-instruments should be like shining stars. Reincarnation - Fountain has the important point of repeated keyboard backing. All sounds are streaming smoothly, and let me say especially in the middle part of Fountain piano solo should make me weep deeply. As if I was dreaming an illusory dream I can feel... Go further away. Exactly mysterious Woods. What can I find in the wood and trees? Lots of plants and animals are living there calmly but powerfully. Of course, I am! Beautiful piano solo and violin sounds are in Pilgrimage. Rhythmical percussions follows and we can feel as if we should walk and climb up the soul mountain TOWARD A CLOUD IN THE SKY (the next song) do you feel? :-) Well, over the cloud is Paradise. Oh, absolutely fantastic world. With piano and recorder chandelier and stardusts around us, we can enjoy a momentary dreamy dream...without any forebodings of Storm... Suddenly! Sharply electronic and percussive rainstorm has attacked and driven us away. Umm...can we stand...until helpful Soul Trees coming. No problem. After the storm, a wonderful world will open! Soul trees with kind mind can defend us from every hard, horrible and painful thing. All instruments - guitars, keyboards, synths, drums & percussion, strings - complexly are twined around the soul trees and lead them to the sky quietly...I feel so. The remnant is only fresh air around us.

With fantastic feeling. The story is surely ASTURIAS itself!
