2 stars Gosh.

This album kicks in all direction. From metal riffs from the guitarists to neo-prog riffs by the keyboard player to ambient film-music and new-age parts. Inbetween, there are some bombastic symphonic rock parts well over the top. The shrieking vocals too is a bit if a torture. This is the Japanese way of prog rock vocals so I should really not complain. I would call it unusual and an aquired taste. When the vocals are mediative, they are great though. The vocalist is quite good actually.......

..... The music is not. I find it over the top in all directions. Too bombastic and without much substance. The melodies and the ideas is simply not good enough. There are a few good parts here, but they are far between. The music is also pretty close to pomp pop several places with overblown sound. The result is a confusing and pretty tiring album. And that is what I feel after ten listenings to this album. Tired. Sorry !
