4 stars A neat follow up to the debut. What's really interesting is the change in sounds from a Pink Floyd clone into this Fusion esque music.

One can expect a decent amount of Japanese singing like the softer kind featured on the debut, chill guitar workouts reminding me of Gabor Szabo and just a general chill vibe. Also I'd like to single out the sixteen minute long Nessy for some special acknowledgment, particularly for its quirky bits utilizing non musical sounds and circus music that oddly enough work really well. Also as I mentioned before this strikes me as being Jazz Fusion but I must say one should absolutely not expect Romantic Warrior or Miles Davis but something along the lines of Al Di Meola or the aforementioned Gabor Szabo,

Overall I think the first couple of tracks are somewhat mediocre but the last three to four tracks really amp this album up, thus four out of five for what is still a great album,

Beautiful Scarlet | 4/5 |
