4 stars The Japanese band - ASTÚRIAS - (commanded by the multi-instrumentalist Yoh Ohyama) in his first studio work Circle in the Forest", presents a sonority that varies of NewAge (influenced mainly by KITARO & MIKE OLDFIELD) and for the Jazz-Prog in the style of bands as, for instance KENSO. Actually, most of the time this mixture doesn't happen inside of the same track, this mix comes separately: TRACK 1 "Ryo Hyo", presents a New Age in the best style KITARO, already TRACK 2 "Clairvoyance" possesses a very close melodic line of the sonority of the band KENSO associate to MIKE OLDFIELD'S sound, TRACK 3 "Angel Tree" seems it was inspired for the Swiss guitarist's chords ALEX DE GRASSI (WILDHAMM HILL RECORDS), TRACK 4 repeats TRACK 2 and it presents as prominence a fantastic guitar solo. TRACK 5 reminds one of the 4 parts (I admit that in the moment I don't remember which of the 4 parts) of the disk "Incantations" of MIKE OLDFIELD ( for me reminded too even and I found an exaggerating copy, to the point of in the final climax to also present a female vocal choir, almost identical to the of the mentioned disk). Thisis is the only flaw of the disk Žalthough of considering it very good (including the last track0.. My rate i 4 stars!!!
