3 stars Men who were able to announce the debut album as a condition of producing the music of the movie announced "Isshoku Sokuhatsu" in 1974. The element of very various music and the culture of Japan were contained in this debut album. They were acknowledged as a band with the element of Pink Floyd and Genesis and the performance was exactly an impact for the music of Japan at that time. Anacatesthesia to which debut album is involved and original melody that flows indifferently. And, it was an album that had remarkably executed the methodology of Prog Rock at that time at the time of thought by Japan. A lot of fans of them exist still in Japan.

They got into the news after the debut album had been announced at once. There were not too much a lot of music to which the element of Prog Rock was remarkably taken in Japan at that time. However, they begin to walk on the following road at the same time as the Bass player's seceding. Hidemasa Sakuma will be received in a new Bass player.

After having already announced the debut album, they were announcing the single. And, it begins the production of this "Golden Picnics" inviting a new Bass player.

It was a masterpiece in the debut album from which Prog Rock was exactly taken to the culture of Japan well. And, a transparent feeling and the anacatesthesia of the debut album remain a little in this album. However, width might be expanded further and the element of the lock strengthened further, too. It gives the impression that the power involved in a good meaning diffuses to the outside. And, the flow of progressing the tune to which the forecast doesn't adhere and a complex rhythm has been established as their styles.

Abstract lyrics seen with the debut album also make working as Prog Rock enough alive and well. Band leader's idea has been established further by this album. Complex development of Pink Floyd and a few Frank Zappa will not end in a simple lock with opening "Flying" at the top.

This album secedes and the band leader will secede the band at the end. The band develops further and reorganizes the band from a different angle. I might feel the performances of men who can listen since this album in another band a little. The directionality of the music had pros and cons also in Japan. Directionality and the method of the music that this band had might appear remarkably in an initial work. By the way, "Golden Picnics" is said to the festival of the recording that they are names of the eaten ice cream.
