Prog Reviewer
4 stars This Ain Soph is recognized as a band generally located in the highest peak between fans of Prog Rock for the music of Japan where I live. It is in the element with width very wide in which the Music's genre cannot be specified for a charm of their music. Of course, the technology of their performances might project in the music that exists in Japan.

The history of their music goes back in the early the 70's. The activity of guitar player's Yozo Yamamoto had the flow of the blues and the lock as a band leader. The element originated the edge in the band that was called "Tenchi-Souzou" ,in a word, "Creation" in the 70's. The musician from whom they had gotten acquainted in student's age had already had a high- quality element for the technology and the knowledge of music.

They have renamed the name of the band to "Ain Soph" in 1977. And, it changes radically and the band begins the production of this debut album though they were facing the state of the dissolution of the band in 1979.

The band with the technology like them guesses that it did not exist so much in Japan though they at that time had gone well in live to some degree. There might have been time when a few in was necessary by the time the existence was accepted by the spectator, too.

However, it is guessed that the music at which they had been aiming at that time obviously included music , for example, Canterbury and Jazz Rock. When this album is announced, it is said that the listener showed puzzled to the fixation of the genre a little because it was specified.

They in debut CD were and there was power in the shown performance. Elements such as Canterbury and Jazz Rock might be taken without remaining and all of them be included in this album that works enough in the masterpiece.
