4 stars I'm happy to see that I'm the first non-indonesian reviewer of this album. Unfortunately for me, I have seen that Gatot has written an excellent and comprehensive review of it and I don't have much to add, so I'll go with my personal impressions only.

Initially it appears to be very inspired by ELP, but the 15 minutes opening track has many different sections and the connection with ELP disappears just after few passages. What I like of this album is the kind of contamination with Balinese music. The two things (Prog and ethnic) fit well together. If music is a way to let your mind trip, this mixture of symphonic prog and Gamelan is an excellent carrier.

I visited Jakarta and Bali more than 20 years ago and Indonesia is still in my heart. This is probably a reason why I like this album.

I'm not sure that it's a full 4 stars but it's surely above 3.
