3 stars My first impression for the album interpose+ is that Kenji Tanaka's guitars are always running in high and Sayuri Aruga's voice sounds a bit painful.

Mixture of two contrary stuffs - electric noises and graceful, laidback guitar solo - at the same time, open the curtain in front of us. Kneji's guitar sounds, one by one, can go well smoothly and flexibly like a queen butterfly, and Katsu Sato's drum & percussion, the basis of this outfit, can keep the rhythm strict and steady. Of course, Ryuji Yonekura's keyboard can be refined and polished even in rock flavour, and the bassist Toshiyuki Koike should be a wonderful pacesetter. These four talented men can play fantastically and conceptually five long stories without any rest. Each song is so dramatic and vivid that in spite of ourselves we should lean forward to the song. Yes, please listen to two instrumental songs here. First, Zitensya (bicycle) may show that a bicycle might go dizzily up and down on an animal road. The guitar solo can go vertiginous and dizzying for such a complex tune, by the strict drumming engine named Natsu. Their power is terrific, with driving on this dirty, unrefined trail. On the contrary the last track Last Sign is a streaming and smoothly-going song here. Each player can, naturally and without hesitating, enjoy playing his own role in this drama. We can feel they are real fantasians. Maybe, sorry maybe Sayuri can sing with changing an octave and a voice type, to others' aggressive, phantasmagoric and kaleidoscopic play - simultaneously suffering from them - I always feel. Her voice sounds short, painful, and a bit out of tune - at least for me. In a sense, we could say her tottery voice be lovely. How do you feel?

My evaluation for this album is...umm, indeed difficult but here are rock fantasia and phantasmagoria.

P.S. This interpose+ was recommended to me by David aka Atavachron, the Art Rock Specialist. Thanks David!
