4 stars Daimonji's debut is excellent example of new Japanese fusion/zeuhl based avant -garde music. Trio with Ruin's drummer Yoshida Tatsuya on board recorded half of their debut album just during their first ever concert! And it's not all - all the album (4 long compositions) is fully improvised music!

Don't be afraid though - differently from usual free form endless jams of improvised albums, ImProg is greatly structurised album, with many changes, emotions, different elements. In fact, at the end of the day you will hardly believe that album is fully improv!

Musically mostly based on progressive jazz fusion, but with huge influence from Magma, this album contains excellent combination of complex, dark, psyche but at the same time easy accessible music. Add operatic vocals, jazzy keyboards passages and Soft Machine-like pieces included.

Really, one of the greatest Japanese prog release from the beginning of new Millennium. Excellent entrance to this country's progressive music.

My rating - 4+!
